Rell should go to the legislature and abolish the DOT- timewasters, traffic stoppers, fuel wasters and mosst probably thieves. Today it was raining and I saw dot trucks on Nichols Ave. in Shelton and Nichols going along about 20 mph, holding up traffic and wasting fuel. During the past several weeks on Rt. 8 between Shelton exits there have been many state trucks guarding brush cutters and treee trimmers , 2 men to a tuck. The tree cutters were off the shoulder but the state trucks were blocking lanes. Now the state has plenty of trucks and boom trucks and can certainly put to work some of the many bodies wasting time but why are they hiring an independent ( I think the independent was Lewis something)- The state of Connecticu;t- WASTE and more Waste. What thieves are watching the other thieves????

Great Idea. They are going to spent more then less. They are going to raise taxes, and spent more on themshelve, and less money on the rest of us.

Why doesn't the state already cut back on the big pensions that are being paid to state workers. Just because someone works for the state shouldn't give them the right to live off of our tax money, forever.
