Here's what made news this week.
In Norwalk, councilman Matt Miklave is running for mayor. Miklave announced Tuesday he will join the list of Democrats looking to unseat incumbent Richard Moccia. Miklave has sat on the Common Council since 2001 and has recently pushed hard to overhaul the city's budget process.
"We can unleash hidden savings from our budget, spend our money more wisely and free up more resources to tackle the important needs we have," Miklave says.
In Stamford, Mayor Pavia's Civility in America series brought William Bratton to town. Bratton led the LAPD as chief, and served as commissioner for the Boston and New York forces. On Tuesday, Bratton stressed that civility in society is about respect between police and civilians.
"It's expected that, in exchange for the significant freedom you have, you'll be respectful to the law," Bratton says. "Respectful to others in society, and respectful of the freedom you're guaranteed in our country."
In Greenwich, Meli-Melo is celebrating 20 years on Greenwich Avenue this spring. The French creperie recently expanded to a full, raw juice bar with holistic health options. Owner Marc Penvenne told us knowing the customer and the market has been key to his longevity.
"You have to be there every day and you have to make sure the customer you have has what they want," he says. "You have to know the market and that' s why we've been so successful."
