CITY WRESTLES WITH DAY LIGHT TIME EXTENSION
SUNDAY THE COUNTRY SPRINGS AHEAD ONE HOUR AS DAYLIGHT TIME RETURNS, MAYOR WANTS TO ADD ANOTHER HOUR TO SPRING AHEAD OF THE COUNTRY.
In what may be his boldest move yet, Bridgeport Mayor Ben Dover has asked the city council to approve his idea of moving the clock ahead not one, but two hours this Sunday morning. At two A.M. Sunday morning all states except Arizona and Hawaii will revert to "Daylight" time and move their clocks ahead one hour.
Mayor Dover believes that by adding an extra hour, the city of Bridgeport will have a jump on the rest of the country. "By jumping ahead an hour, other cities will have to follow us. Our stores and businesses will already be up and running when the rest of the country is getting out of bed," Dover said in a meeting with the city council. "We'll have an hour head start and the rest of the United States will tune in to see what we are doing, to follow our lead so to speak."
His idea was met with mixed emotions at the meeting. Some council members said they were more in favor of moving the clocks back an hour, putting Bridgeport two hours behind the rest of the country. Councilman Iken Doolittle told TOTALLY OFF THE WALL, he saw nothing wrong with being a follower. "If we are behind the country by two hours, we will be able to avoid mistakes being made in other parts of the country, we can learn from their mistakes. An extra hour in the sac won't hurt either."
Mayor Dover has an uphill battle to get his idea approved in time for the Sunday time change. He is use to battling however, his last heated argument was pushing for legalization of Marijuana within city hall. In that skirmish he won the battle, but lost the war. Marijuana was legalized within City Hall, but it's use is prohibited. TOTALLY OFF THE WALL NEWS will follow this story of time change, right up to the last minute.
