In Greenwich, the Housing Authority has new leadership.  Sam Romeo is the new chairman of the Greenwich Housing  Authority.  He is a former Representative Town Meeting member and a member of the Board of Greenwich Emergency Medical Service.  Romeo says he believes his connection with the town will help him succeed in his new role.

"I think after all my knowledge and experience in town, knowing a lot of people, and the ins and outs of Town Hall, which we have to work very closely with, I think I was the best fit for the job at that time," said Romeo. 

In Rowayton, residents are pleading with the commissioner to help preserve land at Nearwater Rd.  Residents say they support the Norwalk Land Trust's efforts to buy the land from a local architect and turn it into a bird sanctuary.

Priscilla Teral of Rowayton said, "I'm really hoping that the land proposed, and it's such a small little area, that it be left open not only as open space, but as habitat conducive for bird life and other wildlife."
