The mayor, appearing on Nutmeg Television early Monday morning, told residents of Forestville that he ordered airstrikes against blighted properties in the Forestville section of Bristol in what he called “a huge escalation in the War on Blight.” U.S. military officials at the Pentagon confirm that military aircraft and assets were used in the vicinity of Broad Street.
Seated at his desk with his hands neatly folded and his pencils recently sharpened, the mayor stated the airstrikes were done in the pre-dawn hours by F15 s from the 48th Fighter Squadron out of Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.
The mayor firmly told residents there is no safe-haven for blighted properties or blighted property owners. He later thanked himself for taking this action, “Our community is always stronger when I do something.”
Egor, the mayor’s spokesperson and communications director elaborated to gathered media members outside his office about the decisive action the mayor took, “Him be good blighted properties and owners be bad. Err.”
