Really Connecticut!!!!More reason to get out of this state...you don't give a dam about the residents who are still struggling to get back home after Sandy...I and many others have not received one penny of help from any of the grants that were "supposedly" earmarked to help us elevate our homes or repair. Oh yeah..how about the grant that would hold us hostage for 5 years..which still has not happened. Since I am from Milford...I want to know what the officials that be are doing to find out why this happened...Maybe We should all just demolish our homes which would lower the tax basis of the city. But then what do they care they will just take money from other sources to make up for it...'THE CITY WITH A BIG HEART'....NOT

State Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection officials said the money would be better spent improving infrastructure that would protect communities from storm surges.

Projects in the running for the latest round of aid include a seawall project in Bridgeport, improvements to a sewage treatment plant in Milford and a levee upgrade in Fairfield.[QUOTE]"The needs of the many outweigh the <wants> of the few."?

[QUOTE]A 10-member committee composed of state agency representatives and the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities decided to prioritize infrastructure improvement over individual home projects.
Only ten individuals on that committee? NAME THEM.
