Cliff is that really helpful ?? I would expect EMR to be his normal winey self and bad mouth our town and town leaders, but don't join his club. And by the by ... the Polito Family builds wonderful aesthetically pleasing homes for familys, hires local subcontractors and is a boon to the tax starved coffers of this great Town. They are a reputable thriving business in Wilton. Perhaps a simple thank you rather than your snarky comment is more appropriate.

How about letting him cool his heels in jail for 6 months before shipping him off to drug rehab and then letting him back into the world with 5 years of parole and 5 year mandatory suspended sentence lurking over him as a reminder not to F it up.

It would be helpful to resolve the firefighter's status. It would be helpful to stop repeat offender's with appropriate justice/treatment. It comes down to management expertise. And yes, Polito builds some of the finest homes in Wilton and they are honest in the process. I know firsthand..

Really?? Who's whining? You must be related to the do nothings who enjoy wasting taxpayer money on admitted thieves of little old ladies money. The kid's a addicted crook and he should be locked up. Polito or no Polito.
