BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport residents are furious over the city's response to the blizzard, prompting some to organize a group calling for the mayor's resignation.

After road crews left countless people snowed in for around a week, a Facebook page titled "Tell Mayor Finch to Resign" was created to call for action. John Gomes, who ran against Mayor Bill Finch in the primaries, is encouraging people to bring their complaints to Tuesday's city council meeting. 

"If you really think that I'm here and I'm trying to talk for my own self gain, look around you," says Gomes. "We still have a tremendous amount of snow around."

In a statement, the mayor's office says he will be conducting a full review into the snowstorm response. 

Speakers will be able to voice their opinions Tuesday starting at 5:30 p.m. at Bridgeport City Hall.
