Stamford reacts: WWE to lay smackdown on downtown Stamford

March 24, 2019

WWE HQ plan showcases Stamford’s economic momentum“I will consider this positive news when a company relocates here from outside Stamford.”— WJ Striker, vis facebook.com/stamfordadvocate“I will agree that Stamford has economic momentum when they start lowering the absurdly high taxes.”— Joseph Scally, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocate“This means empty space some place else in Stamford. Not a win!”— Joseph Gatto, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocateStamford’s building boom shows no sign of slowing“Enough with the ridiculously expensive apartments!!!”— Kristy Morrell, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocate“Pretty soon we will only be allowed to flush our toilets every other day because the treatment plant will be over-burdened if it isn’t already.”— Lisa Apostolides, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocate“Yep, insufficient roads, broken bridges and an already overcrowded city but we keep tearing down beautiful architecture for glass and steel while we continue to pave paradise. The mouth of unbridled greed is insatiable. And yet, despite what should be rising tax revenues, taxes keep rising. Where could this money be going?”— Joseph Scally, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocate“Stamford was ‘GIVEN’ over to the Corporate Greed faction beginning in the 1980s and it will never return to the nice, family centered town/city it once was. One of the reasons I left town for good was because I couldn’t see buying a house and being HIJACKED for taxes and fees were outrageous.”— DollarBill62, via stamfordadvocate.comStamford parking lot to become a piazza“What’s not to like? As said before, what a fantastic and appropriate addition for downtown Stamford and the Basilica of St. John the Evangelist! Hint to anyone (assuming it’s the city) who maintains Kiwanis Park, otherwise known as the vest pocket park next to the Palace ... do something similar. It doesn’t have to be religious. Maybe the Stamford Historical Society or a similar group can get involved. An old downtown Stamford theme perhaps?”— StamfordRadioGuy, via stamfordadvocate.com“This is a much needed improvement and will be a great enhancement to an already beautiful church... nice job Monsignor DiGiovanni!”— StmfrdN8tive, via stamfordadvocate.com“Yes so happy to hear this! It will be so wonderful to have green grounds instead of building after building. I cannot wait for this!!”— Celeste Molina, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocateStamford ed board chief: Assigning blame for mold may be ‘a futile exercise’“Perhaps the construction contractors that did the school repairs and maintenance over the years need to be investigated. Honestly, someone had to know this was going on. How could not even one construction worker, plumber or electrician fail to notice! It’s my understanding that basically one company handled the vast majority of the work in the schools. Ask them how this disaster many years in the making happen!”— Janet Vaccaro, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocate“So a soccer field takes precedence over mold? The blame goes to those who opted to spend on aesthetics instead of students’ wellbeing.”— Holly Meintzer Wainwright, via facebook.com/stamfordadvocate
