Bloomfield Brawlers: Roller Derby or Council Meeting?
Inspired by a the April Bloomfield Neighborhood Association meeting we hyped here, town Administrator, Louise Palagano tried extending the idea of public presentations by Department heads to the town Council. In contrast to the enlightening discourse with concerned citizens at the BNA meeting(top photo), the Mayor and council wound up in a verbal brawl.
Having attended the BNA meeting, we noted three added ingredients that may have contributed to the Council's disfunctionality:
1) It's an election year,
2) TV Cameras were rolling,
3) Dialogue was not on the agenda
