In Norwalk, all four Democratic mayoral candidates collected the required signatures to appear on the Party's September 10 primary ballot before the Wednesday deadline. The primary field is as crowded as most have ever seen. Democratic Registrar of Voters Stuart Wells said that even a two person primary is rare in Norwalk and four is unheardof.
The winner of the democratic primary will face off in the general election in November against Mayor Richard Moccia, who has already secured the nomination for the Republican Party.
In Stamford, almost three hundred people attended Tuesday night's planning board meeting, at which the board intended to discuss the proposed licsence of City land to Developer Building and Land Technologies for the construction of a boat yard. Under the proposed agreement, BLT would fund $5 million worth of City projects, but opponents say the land offered in exchange would be given away illegally.
The meeting was postponed due to a medical emergency that occurred during the hearing. It will most likely be rescheduled next Tuesday, at Turn of River Middle School, at 7 p.m. Check back with It's Relevant for updates to the schedule.
In Greenwich, The board of Selectmen issued a rarely-used "Sense of the Board" resolution on Thursday in support of the national coalition Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Local organization, Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence, presented the board with a petition signed by 324 residents urging the board to join Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
Ultimately, First Selectman Peter Tessei and Selectman David Theis voted against joining Mayors Against Illegal guns because the coalition's structure would not presently recognize all three Selectmen as official members.
