Boo Hoo Easton What makes them above Federal laws?..Affordable housing is in most every city/town of CT..Except most elite towns/cities choose to place them on fringes of next town just as Trumbull placed theirs on BPT border...using BPT streets etc
Alot of these so called affgordable" are not always affordable...Take for instance the Avalon in Shelton on BPT AVE..average rent is 2,000 a month upward to 2400 for a 2 bdrm...Same with Trumbull Avalon 1800 Mo-2200 on Old Town RD across the street from BPT using BPT Street...THAT'S AFFORDABLE??

What's the matter Westport want to be? I hit a raw nerve with the truth!!!
No poor Phyllis here I have never charged 8% and gave a percentage of my earnings along with my time to those less fortunate than myself...Something that I am certain never ocurred the likes of you to do.
Boo Hoo not in your back yard...Boo hoo your kind cares nothing about those you feel are "beaneth you"..Honey the old Italian applies today more than ever..TODAY YOU, TOMORROW ME...We are all in this together..it is all about compassion, humanity..
BTW I work 2 jobs, always have.
Only worried about people who are caught up in the crunch. Those exploited by people like you, those with your self centered mindset. Those who have lost their jobs due to downsizing , outsourcing.

I helped to date 10 people, who did not buy their homes through me, save their homes. Did this when their Realtors turned their backs on them, never returning calls & cries for help, much less help them.

I dance to the beat of a different drummer...I care about People ...There are good and bad in all fields.

I renegotiated their mtgs..had their late payments backended...many hours and weeks of time for each!

Did this for no pay, no motive..other than it was the right thing to do...Filled my heart with joy to see families remain in their homes, families kept intact.

These are facts and in no way boasts...Not one closing in my almost 29 years licensed did I walk away with a full commission..not many can say that! I have alway given superior service and helped out by kickin in!

What is it you've done to help your fellow man/woman kind?

Bridgeport and Stratford have many apartments for rent to seniors for 30% of their income. I am moving on up. Go luck to all of you.

People live in Easton to stay away from "affordable housing". If you can't afford to live in Easton, STAY OUT! Very simple.

If people want to pay higher taxes and property values to get away from this type of stuff, what right does the federal government have to say otherwise?!??

The Federal Government has NO MONEY. Maybe the Federal Government is giving the people of Easton back THEIR OWN MONEY.

Ain't that the truth...Turd I mean Todd seems to blame everyone except the stupid people who forced those prices up by outbidding one another. Smart folks bid within their means..did not take 120% mtgs...Unfortunately jobs in CT are going bye bye and even affluent communties and those in them losing their jobs will not be able to remain...It could happen to anyone even Turd..oops meant "TODD" with his nifty little proxy program and his endless hours of judgeits..what a fake!

You are right..but also the Fed Gov does same thing about busing kids across towns/cities when you pay high taxes and higher price for a home in a certain school district...poof big brother decides to racially balance sending one of your kids to a school across town and the other nearby..that is also messed up. "BIG BROTHER" is to involved with our lives and it will only get worse..by 2014 Big Brother will control our Healthcare..will decide the fate of all. Who is allowing them? The silent majority who do nothing to stop this nonsense and vote the same cronies in over & over..The bleeding hearts that bleed us dry while they live removed far away from the consequences of their bleeding heart decisions.
