Second, Bridgeport is in poor financial condition with about four times the total liabilities and unfunded promises per person as Stockton, CA, and "Stockton is currently in bankruptcy. Bridgeport must restructure its existing retirement plans in an equitable and sustainable manner, and grow the taxable Grand List faster than the city budget if it expects to avoid bankruptcy in the future.

Finally, Bridgeport has huge demographic challenges with a per capita income that is significantly below the national average combined with a much higher unemployment rate than the national average. It also faces much larger achievement gaps and dropout rates in its education system than the national and state averages."

Do you think Bridgeport will reach Detroit Status or Camden, NJ soon
