We all know that SYD is Bazzano and Bud is Prague. We're not that stupid.
Bazzano is working to become mayor. South Windsor is a hick town? It has a downtown like West Hartford? Farms are grotesque? Malls are great?
Bazzano's vision for South Windsor is truly scary. His cutthroats politics are the same.
And what Democratic hack are you Annabelle?

MAYBE STATE POLICE? NO! so long for now TC!
News Flash buddie.....We have a representative form of government. Citizens don't get to vote on whether a town "changes" or not! Sorry, you don't get to go to the town council meetings and cast your vote. You can tell them what you think but they don't have to agree with you. You get to vote every other November! The only investigation of our town seems to be you and your alledged group of super sleuths. But nasty words and unfounded rumors, just "ain't gonna cut it." If you've got the goods, then you better spill it to the right people.

The investigation should be of the uncivilized thugs like you. We are reshaping South Windsor into a civilized community. You have to spend money to keep moving a community forward. If those who came before us did not invest money we would have nothing today. Be part of the solution, help us move South Windsor forward, grow up and work for the new community we all want. You cant live in the past.

Apart from attempts at intimidation via this forum what personally have YOU done to make South Windsor better?

I'll bet you don't even recycle.

Why don't you just go to the Town's financial officer and ask him to explain the budget and the factors that required the increase. He will be happy to do it and you might be able to regain some piece of mind by seeing the facts and figures yourself. Surely you don't expect to get the answers here.

I did that already and it is a real mess! money is mix in with other money that is not needed right now or maybe in our future? it is a real nightmare trying to see where all the money goes! how do think the Town manager finds extra money when they need it like that $450,000 thousand dollars for our Old Post offices! they stash millions of dollars in the budget for there play money! if they had $88 million last budget and they spent millions of dollars that was not wisely spent! if they watch there spending this year you would not have a tax increase would you? if you can not understand that. you have tunnel vision!

You are a stupid thug. You should be ashamed of yourself. The budget is an honest document administered by a decient man that loves South Windsor.

The Town staff asks only for the money they need. Dont lie about the Town Manager. He never said anything about finding money for the much needed Town Hall Annex.

Town staff deserve this long needed space and we will give it to them, properly finised. Anyone that cant see that our Town Hall workers need this building is an ignorant fool.

Most everything in your post tells me that you really don't have a good handle on the process. From statements like "...millions of dollars not wisely spent" to "..millions of dollars in the budget for there (their) play money" and phrases like "stashing money".Not knocking you, but it is a "nightmare" to understand and it is a very complicated process. You are far too emotionally wired up to even try, or want to understand it. You have a right to your opinion and I mine. My opinion is that you are not one who we should follow into battle.

I've been reading your posts to this forum. It is no coincidence they've been written and posted near the time of the full moon.

You are a mentally disturbed person who needs some medication and some serious couch time.

Now turn off your computer and get the help you need.

Don't forget Nevers Parks, they tore trees down to put in yuppie challenge courses and swinging monkey trees, so they can build what, character, confidence, I want to be marine, it's a disgrace. The park has a two baseball fields, one them as seen in the film Field of Dreams, walking trails, jogging trails, exercise stations and a soccer field. What else more do you need to grow up?

Finally, we can't forget the Bark Park or Dog Park, whatever you want the call the $56,000 lastest fad: dogs have to socialize. "If you build it, they will come..." and so they have, from every town in 20-30 mile radius. The park is a mess now, ruined by politicians, police chief (creator of dog park, does he not have enough things to do) and parents who love to spoil there kids.

Folks, S.W. is not West Hartford, it will never be W.Hartford, in the end, your dog really wants to be walked on a leash with it's owner on the trail walking too (ever heard of exercise at the park!) and not meeting some dog with his nose up his butt.

Should be interesting to see who SW brings in now to continue ruining a once quaint town. I remember when the town had only one traffic light. Now it's an over populated, yuppie wanna-be town. The idiots that run the place have allowed it to become over congested with housing and mall traffic. Great job on the mile long drag strip you've created called Buckland Road which is now a cut through straight thru the town. Ever wonder why it takes 15 minutes to get from Sullivan Avenue to the I-84 onramp? That's because SW let Manchester have the mall and didn't want the traffic. Well, now they have the traffic and not nearly the tax rewards. Idiots in office I say. And let's not even touch upon the snot-nosed, whipper snapper cops you have on every corner with a hard-on for giving a speeding ticket. Imagine if they truely fought crime? And how are those taxes doing? Must need another set of flood lights on the little league baseball field so the 12 year olds can play at 10:00 at night. Money well spent for sure.
