A First Selectman and a Future First Selectman

WestportNow.com Image
In his remarks at tonight’s Longshore Club Park reception marking the 50th anniversary of Westport’s purchase of the park, First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff recalled that he had a picture of himself at the age of 16 with then First Selectman Herbert Baldwin. It was taken in 1961, a year after Baldwin completed the Longshore purchase, and the occasion was the visit to Westport of Miss America when Baldwin presented her with roses on the Westport courthouse steps. Joseloff was then news director of WWPT, a student-run low-power radio station in Westport. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

The book offers a distinctive examination of the attributes that lead to outstanding personal achievement. 

Among the factors that Bartiromo, anchor of CNBC’s “Closing Bell” and “The Wall Street Journal Report,” stressed are a focus on what is really important in life, self-knowledge, humility and adaptability. 

She cited examples of these traits gleaned from interviews with famous achievers in several fields.
