Little Miss Duck Hook, allow me to guess where taxpayers money is going to purchase the supplies necessary to renovate our lovely pumpkin patch farm...Ring's end pray tell? also, who's "friends" of Ambler Farm are going to be engaged in this project that should have been funded privately rather than out of taxpayer's pockets???

Don't know if supplies are purchased from Rings End or even if maybe some are even donated by them, but I guess i have to ask - are you against Ring's End ? A thriving business in Wilton that pays taxes to the Wilton coffers !! Lots of helpful employees ready and willing to serve. And support their families by doing so. Many families of which live and spend in Wilton. Are you against any other Wilton businesses too ? Should we all be buying everything in Bridgeport to support that city's economy ?? You speak out of so many sides of your mouth we all can't keep track which dribble to follow. So how about ... just be quiet. Confucious or some other deep thinker once said ... "it is better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool then to open it and REMOVE ALL DOUBT !!"

Little Miss Duck Hook, Do you have a copy of the Request For Proposal or bid request that Ambler Farm is sending out for supplies and work orders due to the result of our taxpayer handout?

Many people don't vote, because they know their vote will not count. All over this country peoples votes have been destroyed, are took away from them. Only the rich and the powerful will decide what will happen, and who will be voted into any office in this country.This is America. Which is now, more like a 'Third World Country', to millions of its citizens.
