Former First Selectman Tom Ragland is moving

His home at 2 Spring Street, Riverside, just came on, asking $2.395. No pictures posted yet but it’s always been a very pretty house and looks extremely well maintained. I always thought more of his house than I did his services and talents as our First Selectman, but when he and another First Selectman, the late Bill Lewis (whom I greatly admired) both lived on Spring, there was one street in Riverside you could count on being plowed, no matter how large or unexpected the storm. That was before Cos Cobbers reclaimed the town government, of course, and the decline began.

    I’m sorry you are on the losing side of local government.

    Maybe its time you went to the police academy to learn how to guard construction sites on little side streets around town like the rest of us. FF says its a guilt free fleece of public resources because the utilities and private contractors pay for it….apparently using money from a money tree!

    Hey… the broker felt it necessary to point out Ragland’s house has Mitsubushi air conditioners. Wonder if it has sinks and toilets?

    Dude –
    I must admit I am a bit confused here about the Greenwich political hierarchy. What the hell is a “First Selectman”? Where is the mayor of Greenwich? The President? WHO THE FRIG IS THE HEAD HONCHO??

    So you need to fill me in. Francis is not the Mayor? He is not The Pope of Greenwich Village? THEY TOOK MY THUMBS CHARLIE!! THEY TOOK MY THUUUUUMBS!! A classic Dude. Bed Bug Eddie!! I thought Francis WAS Bed Bug Eddie.

    Anyhows, have we hooked our wagon to a two bit huckster? Someone who doesn’t carry the politicians around in his pocket like so many nickels and dimes? Someone who has no juice?

    So why did you pick him as a partner if he has no political juice? You dummy. His personality? His sense of humor? Even you aren’t that brain dead.

    What is it? I WANT THE TRUTH!! I can handle the truth!! If Francis isn’t calling the shots in this town, who is? I only want to deal with the top dog.

    So I have been sucking up to Francis all this time FOR NO REASON?? Being nice and kissing his ring? Hoping for a scratch and sniff winner that he never delivers?

    That makes me look RIDICULOUS!! And a man in my position can’t afford to be made to look ridiculous. Now you get the hell out of here! And if that goomba (WASP? JEW?) tries any rough stuff, you tell him I ain’t no dirt peddler. Yeah, I heard that story. GODFATHER DUDE!!

    So just who is in charge here Dude? Please tell me it’s not you. You loser.

    Your Pal,

    • P&Z employee Diane Fox and the staffers under her have the most power in dictating what you can do with your land, what stores you can shop in, and where, etc. The P&Z “commissioners”, who are appointed by the two political party bosses (Francis is the Democrat, but has equal say on such matters), merely serve to rubber stamp what Fox and her staffers tell them to do.
      Dr. McKersie, another ostensible employee, controls 80% of the budget, so fiscally, he’s the boss.
      So got that? The entire town is run by two employees.

    Dude –
    OK. Fox and Dr. McKersie. Got it!!

    Is Dr. McKersie a real doctor or one of those fake PHD doctors? Those guys are a joke. Right? They go to school forever, write a BS paper that they cribbed, and a paper that no one actually reads, and then call themselves a Doctor. It’s a disgrace. They can’t tell an enema from a rectal thermometer. And they have no real world experience. Yet think they are the sharpest knife in the drawer, when the vast majority of them are as sharp as a Q-Tip.

    But anyhows, if McKersie controls the cash, he is our pigeon. Correct? If he is a real Doctor, book an appointment with him ASAP. Let him check your prostrate, then play with your ball bag while you look left and cough. After you two have bonded, set up a meeting for us. You will both feel closer to each other after that, and probably give each other pet names. But book a local place where I will feel comfortable. Not the Poconos with the cheesy champagne glass tubs that you love so much.

    Call me after you set it up. And don’t elope until I cut a deal with him.
    Your Pal,
    Walt
