I’m waiting for permission from First Selectman Tesei to post what he sent me but I thought I’d take the opportunity to praise the people in town who put the effort into managing our finances. I’m the type to stand on the sidelines doing nothing while they work and then take potshots at their efforts. And that’s easy to do: I’d love to spend your money on what interests and concerns me, but the committed people do the work and try to come up with reasonable allocations. Democrat or Republican – I tip my hat to the Fudruckers, Krumeichs and Tesei’s of this town who spend huge hours trying to make Greenwich work. I tend toward the cynical side, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate true citizens.
Geeze, if I stay in this maudlin vein, I might say something nice about our police force, so I’d better quit now.
