Pic Of The Day #607

No, it’s not a coincidence. The construction company doing work on the Merritt Parkway — and whose equipment is stored at the Exit 41 commuter parking lot — was founded by the grandfather of former Trump campaign chairman and convicted felon Paul Manafort. The company is based in New Britain. (Photo/Dan Woog)

  1. Hmmm. Wonder if that’s enough pipe to drain a swamp

  2. The Manafort construction equipment was very prevalent in downtown Westport during the development of Bedford Square.

    I saw the trucks and I was wondering about it. I said to myself ‘nah, that’s just a coincidence’. I guess not!!!

  4. New Britain had a street called “Paul Manafort Drive” which was named for the current newsmaker’s father who was a three-time mayor in that city and one whose terms in office were not without a few corruption scandals of his own. Some in town were embarrassed to have the reference to the Manafort family on a street sign, so since Manafort Sr. was never convicted, the street sign now reads, “Paul Manafort, Sr. Drive.”

  5. I would like to know when they are going to finish! It’s been years of construction and very little progress. Workers show up sporadically at night then disappear for weeks.
