CONNECTICUT’S “UGLIEST” POLITICIANS #5: Bill Finch
#5 Bill Finch
POSITION: Mayor of Bridgeport
YEARS IN OFFICE: 2007-Present
ON TWITTER: @MayorBillFinch
You could argue that Bill Finch’s “ugliest” moment is a little more general. Less about one specific event, and more about the fact that Bridgeport is the 4th most dangerous city in the country. Just an insane stat. Sure, the Bluefish and the Harbor Yard project are great and all, but what about all the crime and murder, Bill?! Bridgeport needs to be fully restored somehow, and quick.
Finch has recently caught heat for the whole “urban farming” ordeal in Bridgeport. You can read the whole story here. Bottom line is, he should be focusing less on chickens and more on getting the city of out of the Top 5 Most Dangerous Cities in the U.S. list.
Also, when Family Guy is making fun of the city you run you know things have gotten real bad:
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
VIDEO THAT MADE US LAUGH: Video of Mayors dancing awkwardly is never not amusing.
THE ROWLAND SCALE: This is where Bill Finch falls on our “Rowland Scale” of how bad he is on a scale of George Washington to John Rowland.
