Edwards Named to State Committee

Westport Public Works Director Stephen Edwards will serve as an ad hoc member of the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority to vote on issues concerning the Bridgeport project, Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced today.

The Bridgeport Project provides solid waste disposal and recycling services to 20 Connecticut municipalities in Fairfield and New Haven counties. The project consists of a 2,250 ton-per-day mass-burn trash-to-energy facility, eight transfer stations, two landfills, a regional recycling center and the Children’s Garbage Museum.

“Steve brings a wealth of experience to this position and his dedication to the community is a logical extension of the service he has provided to the citizens of Connecticut for more than 20 years,” Rell said in a statement.

“His concern for the well-being of our state, combined with his professional background, makes him well-qualified to serve on the authority as an ad hoc member.”

Connecticut Post Endorses Shays

The Connecticut Post, which endorsed Democrat Diane Farrell two years ago, today endorsed incumbent Republican Christopher Shays for re-election. The newspaper is published in Bridgeport, where Shays lives.

The text of the editorial: “Even more so than two years ago, voters in Fairfield County’s 4th Congressional District face a gut-wrenching decision at the polls on Nov. 7 in a campaign that is being viewed nationally as a bellwether of American politics in 2006.

“The race pits a rematch between 19-year Republican incumbent Christopher Shays of Bridgeport and his challenger; Democrat Diane Farrell, the former first selectwoman of Westport. 

“Both are articulate, progressive politicians who are well versed on the issues, the district and its citizens.  They are more alike on issues than apart.  Shays’ experience aside, either candidate would make a fine congressperson for the district, which covers lower Fairfield County and swings northward from Bridgeport into the lower Naugatuck Valley.

Flash Flood Warning Issued

The National Weather Service today issued a flash flood warning for the Westport area until 10:45 a.m.

It said persistent heavy rains have been falling for the past couple of hours and more rain is anticipated through late morning.

An advisory urged motorists not to drive into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Move to higher ground.

A flash flood warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. Residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate precautions to protect life and property. Do not attempt to cross swiftly flowing waters or waters of unknown depth by foot or by automobile.
