Price Street in Bridgeport has not seen any kind of snow plowing effort from the city of Bridgeport. The mayor has the luxury to stay home if he pleases after all we do pay enough taxes for him to have that luxury. The tax payers that live on Price Street had to dig themselves out in order to get to work. CAN WE GET THE CITY TO PRICE STREET? WE ARE RIGHT OF PALISADE AND TWO MINUTES FROM BRIDGEPORT HOSPITAL. How dare Mayor Finch take credit for clean streets in Bridgeport when the ambulance cant even get through the streets to save life's. SHAME ON YOU! We pay the most and get the least!

Your last sentence is the very essence of living under ironclad democrat rule. Oh and by the way, traveling is against the rules in Bridgeport.

Can you imagine how that young lady is feeling? It's just such bad luck. I know a family who dragged in a family member and she literally died on the elevator ride up to the emergency room- one of those slow elevators.
