|Gerald Nitwitsky of Bridgeport failed|
to see eye to eye with the Mayor.
The city counsel was meeting in a special session to investigate establishing a new city tax to fund a parachute folding school. Nitwitsky who fell out of a tree and on his head as a toddler wants any tax money raised to go to his tree climbing school. "If I had known how to climb a tree when young, perhaps I would not have fallen out of a tree." Nitwitsky told Channel 1 News after the meeting.
The two men went round and round and little was accomplished before an intermission, when Happy Hour started at 9 P.M. The meeting adjourned for one hour while counsel members sipped beers and discussed other ways to raise taxes. During the break, Nitwitsky sat red faced and silent, staring at his nose. When the meeting resumed at 10 P.M. the Mayor seemed more willing to agree with Nitwitsky, but an agreement was not voted on and tabled until next week. The Mayor leaves tomorrow for a sky diving vacation in Utah. Channel 1 News will follow this story until it ends.
