President Barack Obama today nominated Westporter Herbert M. Allison Jr. to oversee the Treasury Department’s Troubled Asset Relief Program.

If confirmed by the Senate, the Greens Farms resident would oversee the $700 billion financial rescue fund aimed at restoring rattled markets.

Allison, 65,  has been chief executive of Fannie Mae since it was seized by the government in September. He would succeed Neel T. Kashkari and become Treasury assistant secretary for financial stability.

In that role, Allison will be charged with overseeing several federal programs meant to improve the availability of credit, aid major automakers and bolster the housing market.

Westport medical illustrator Neil Hardy points to a picture of himself as a student at Johns Hopkins University at the start of today’s Westport Center for Senior Activities highly popular “A Conversation with the Artist III” series sponsored by Friends of the Senior Center. Hardy showed many of his meticulously drawn medical illustrations with explanations about each one.

Westport Losing Pequot Capital Mangement to Wilton

Westport is losing hedge fund Pequot Capital Management to Wilton.

The $4 billion hedge fund currently at the Nyala Farm office complex has signed a long-term lease on new headquarters at 187 Danbury Road. The building formerly housed Bank of America and Dun and Bradstreet.

“The location, coupled with the existing infrastructure of the building and the high caliber of the space made 187 Danbury Road a perfect fit,” Pequot’s Susan Hotchkiss said. Pequot will occupy 27,000 square feet of the 136,000-square-foot building.

Davis Marcus Partners, the real estate firm that owns 187 Danbury Road, also announced that wealth management firm Granite Group Advisors has leased 2,200 square feet. Other companies with offices at Pequot’s new home are Wilton Reinsurance, Private Client Resources and skin-care group Beiersdorf.

Red Flag Fire Warning Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued a red flag fire warning for Westport and area from noon to 7 p.m. today.

Relative humidity levels are expected to fall below 20 percent later today, an advisory said. Winds will increase to around 15 mph with 20 to 25
mph gusts.

These conditions combined with dry fine fuels could result in the rapid spread of brush fires if one were to start, the advisory said.

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are occurring or imminent. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and dry fuels will create explosive fire growth potential.
