BRIDGEPORT CHOSEN FOR ANNUAL LOSERS CONVENTION, AGAIN!

FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW, CITY WILL HOST LOSERS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FOR A THREE DAY CONVENTION.  JUST HOW MANY LOSERS CALL BRIDGEPORT HOME  IS UNKNOWN

BRIDGEPORT

Mayor Ben Dover is asking residents of Bridgeport to welcome the hoards of people that will fill our streets this Tuesday through Thursday.  Many of the visitors will be making their first visit and he's hoping to make a good first impression.  Dover told OFF THE WALL News that as a young man, he attended a couple of  Losers rallies in Omaha and it gave him the nudge he needed to do something besides nothing.  At age 34 he moved out of his parents home and started attending Losers meetings around the country and now less than fifteen years later, he is the Mayor of Bridgeport.

A small crowd of convention goers from last year,
mill around in the street between meetings.
Local hotels and restaurants are looking forward to an increase in business from the attendees this year, due to the curb on makeshift shelters and tents. Cooking over open fires has also been banned.  Mayor Dover pushed for these new bans, saying people are made to feel like losers when they are forced to live outdoors.

The convention will be held in the Soldiers Convention Center on Main and 2nd St.  Guest speakers this year include Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will read from his book, "Just When I Thought I Had It Made, My Maid Ratted Me Out".  It is about how he went from being on top to becoming a near loser.  Closing speaker on Thursday will be Mitt Romney who promises to talk directly to the 47% he was talking about during his unsuccessful bid for President.  "There's nothing wrong with being a loser" is the theme of his presentation.
OFF THE WALL News will be there to keep everyone up to date.
