Fairfield Franco said on May 22, 2014 @ 2:56 pm.....Melinda, how can this possibly be true? The knuckle draggers have been posting on Patch for the last 2 years, that Fairfield County, as well as the rest of the state is DOOOOOOOOMED! Could this be more lies made up by our socialist governor and our Kenyan born President? Why would ANYONE choose to live in Blue State CT, where there are gun laws, and the liberals are running the asylum? I guess I'll have to check with Fox News or Sean Hannity to get the real facts.

Only a journalist with an agenda would equate underperformance with "Booming".

Fairfield and Hartford counties are simply the tallest midgets. No offense to little people.
