I could not find a way to respond to Andrea's quite negative statements about Bridgeport, so I thought I might kill two birds with one stone. I could understand some folks feeling some what negative towrds the City and how the politicians have chosen to spend city funds and how to allocate them. However; I take offense to this obvious ignorant person comments about the scums of the earth living here. I wish she could tell my Professor ,who lives in the Brooklawn area most his life, this stupid comment! He taught at Harvard University 30 years and at the age of 87 years young chooses to teach at Univerity of Bridgeport. Or Perhaps she could tell a judge who lives on my street at LakeSide Drive, the many teachers and attorney's, accountant's, and White collar executives who live here as well. I am an educated busines woman and felt sick to my stomach at this person's comment. How dare she think for other people. Has it ever occured to you some people might live here for the bueauty surrounding us. I wake up every morning to the beautiful view of Lake Forest. We have a club house and a private beach in our area for residents. Inaddition, to these blessing's my children have the opportuniy to attend the Westport public school system, by virtue of a program called Open Choice. They were the first two children chosen for this program. My husband and I combined make well over $250,000. I paid sixteen years ago $119,000.00 fo rmy house and have had several oppotunities to move out of this neighborhood. While looking in these surrounding towns I have come across one too many pretencious people such as yourself. On the otherhand, The neighbors where I live are wonderful retired Dentist, Business owners, lawyers etc. Never once have I ever come across a scum of the earth as you have such stated!!!!!!! It seems odd to me that someone who has not lived in Bridgeport could judge those who live here in such a derogatory manner. I guess Bridgeport should consider itself fortunate not to have Andrea as one of our upper class reidents. In the future think before you speak and offend. others!!!
