Great idea . Until the snobs of this town start complaining. The town of East Lyme is full of drunks, addicts and sex offendors .....they live among us, are on the town government and even the police force.
These hypocrites will be the first ones to complain.

What are you talking about Rochester NY. I have lived here for many moons and yes there is always a problem with drunks, addicts and sex offendors no matter where you go, but I don't usually see them laying on the street corner. No town is perfect but I know it is better than most.

I notice you are from waterford. How would you like a homeless shelter in your back yard...the prison was bad enough, but atleast guarded. I wonder what the crime, drug rate will be if the prison is turned into a 'homeless shelter'...I've lived here for more than many moons...57 years.
