More cash for Norwich Hospital sinkhole?

In my opinion, it would be a blessing and deliverance for Preston if a new regional ethics committee was formed.

It seems our small Town of Preston is being forced to foot the bill for the wishes of local politicians. Our Preston Redevelopment Agency, our first selectman (and now treasurer of the PRA) and state officials are trying to force us taxpayers into an unnecessary $8 million loan! In this economy?

Sell the hospital property as-is. Let the supposed developer do with it what they will, if they even exist.

There are so many questions never being answered and possible conflicts of interest. How about, along with a regional ethics board we add a regional auditor? I'd love to know where all Preston's money goes.
