Boucher: State’s Tax Policy Costing Jobs, Revenue

WestportNow.com Image
State Senator Toni Boucher of the 26th Senatorial District told the Westport Rotary Club today that Connecticut’s tax burden is the third largest in the country and is costing jobs and loss of population as people relocate to lower taxed states such as Florida and Texas. She said the state’s total revenue has dropped almost 30 percent because Connecticut’s largest sector of employment is the hard-hit financial services area. Although the governor and legislators have taken steps to address budget deficits, Boucher said that state revenue is declining faster than cost reductions. One possible long-term solution, she said, is to diversify industry which is too heavily weighted to Wall Street today. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

The group’s fourth in its series on Race and Politics is an open forum titled “Sonia Sotomayor for Supreme Court Justice: Good Nomination or Bad?”  and will be held at 7 p.m. in the library’s McManus Room.

“We use a format for these Conversations on Race that encourages everyone to speak up,” said Harold Bailey Jr., TEAM Westport chair. 

“If you have a point of view on this, we want to hear it.  In our earlier events in this series, we’ve heard opinions from every point on the political spectrum. We hope everyone in the community takes the time to come to the library and make his or her opinion known.”

Comings and Goings: DeRosa’s Restaurant Closes

WestportNow.com Image
After 30 years at its location at 577 Riverside Ave., DeRosa’s Restaurant has closed. The restaurant and nearby buildings—including Westport Florists and the Riverside Barber Shop—are included in a demolition application now under review by town departments. (See WestportNow Teardown of the Day April 10, 2009) The properties are part of the Saugatuck Center development that includes retail and residences. Patrick Vigilio, owner of the Riverside Barber shop, said he is looking for another spot since he has been asked to leave the shop’s home for 87 years by the end of September or early October. An application to demolish 570 Riverside Ave., home of Doc’s Cafe, and 580 Riverside Ave.,were filed earlier as part of the project. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
