Capitol Report: Bridgeport Councilman challenged to take drug test

Capitol Report

Normally, people keep their drug urine tests private. Well, not in Bridgeport, where Bridgeport board of education member Maria Pereira challenged Bridgeport City Councilman Ernie Newton to a drug urinalysis throwdown, to which Newtown replied “Name the time and place Maria…Bring it.”  

As he predicted, Newton, who had substance abuse issues a decade ago, tested negative and published his test results on our friend Lennie Grimaldi’s “Only in Bridgeport” website. Only in bridgeport…Indeed.

Also, ever been to San Fran? You ever try to get down the famously crooked and steep Lombard Street? Officials are considering a solution to fix the congestion problem.
