Civil disobedience as New London fights back?
This is in response to, “New London: Poor city, rich port,” (Jan. 9). Perhaps it's time for New London to consider civil disobedience.
What if police and emergency vehicles experience mechanical breakdowns when responding to calls from the State Pier? What if snow plows broke down before they were able to clear roads leading to State Pier?
Roads could fall into disrepair and sewer lines could back up. The burden New London bears for southeastern Connecticut and the state in general is well documented and seems to only increase over time. Perhaps the time is coming for New London’s taxpayers to engage in civil disobedience!
