It will be great to have another school in Trumbull. It is bedtime for Tippy and her fish and myself, and to all, a good night.
Herbst is an idiot

Town Councilman Mary Beth Thornton, Herbst's challenger in November, disagreed with his assessment of the situation, calling his handling of the deal "one of the worst mistakes in Trumbull's history."

"He botched this negotiation up as much as it was possible to botch up," Thornton said.

Herbst's excessive demands for road paving and emergency police radio upgrades cost the town 40 acres of land, more than $1 million in compensation the city had agreed to pay Trumbull, and 100 spots in the science-based school for Trumbull students, Thornton said.

"Mr. Herbst lost all this for the town and in return gained the right to negotiate in good faith for a lease on 20 acres of deed-restricted land of dubious value," she said. "This is a clear illustration of incompetence."

Fellow Trumbullites...have you had enough of this kid or what? He is grossly inept and doesn't have a clue about governing. Next month is the election, vote him out or God only knows where Trumbull residents will end up with him as First Selectman.

i think herbst would be outclassed by a bowl of potato salad in ANY situation.

on the other side: it's another typical FfIuNcCkH (read between the letters. AND, btw, it's the ONLY time you'll see me capitalize finchy's name).

Welcome back, Sol. I agree with you about Finch. Good night.

I'm not sure how Finch ties into this equation, after all, we are talking about Little Timmy from Trumbull who is in way over his head. Finch is a rocket scientist compared to this twit. No matter, as long as we vote him out next month.
