The Drowning of a Seaside City tells the story of Bridgeport, Connecticut’s ride to bankruptcy. It explains how the fiscal neglect and denial went on, and on. How there were giveaways one year, and denial the next year. Except for Mayors Tom Bucci and Mary Moran, no other leaders would divulge the financial problems, and when Bucci and Moran did – it was almost too late. Many believe the problems are now solved, but that is too far from the truth. You will understand how Bridgeport, and other cities and towns now experiencing the same dilemma, cannot possibly be “okay”. These municipalities will suffer until steps are taken to relieve them of their financial burdens.
