Paul F. Rossi: 12-year Westport resident. Contributed photo
Paul F. Rossi has been selected to fill a vacancy in District 5 of Westport’s Representative Town Meeting (RTM).

The three other members of the district, which includes most of the town’s Greens Farms area, selected Rossi to fill the vacancy caused by the retirement of eight-term representative John W. Booth, the RTM’s senior member. (See WestportNow Jan. 6, 2009)

Rossi, 51, has spent most of his career in and around information technology in sales, marketing and consulting, including many years at Gartner Group. A graduate of Villanova University, he holds an MBA in marketing and finance from Fordham University.

A former past president of the Westport Soccer Association, Rossi and his wife Marguerite have three children. They have been Westport residents since 1996. He will be sworn in prior to the RTM’s rescheduled Feb. 17 meeting.

Report: Westport Customers Had $60 Million With Madoff

More than $60 million of Westport National Bank customers’ money was in an account that the bank had with Bernard L. Madoff shortly before he was arrested in December and charged with operating a global Ponzi scheme, The New York Times said in a story appearing in today’s editions.WestportNow.com Image

None of the money belonged to the bank, a division of Connecticut Community Bank, but the account was in its name, the newspaper said. The bank has said it merely acted as a custodian for customers investing with Madoff.

Because the bank held an account with Madoff in its name, the true customers may not qualify for the federal securities insurance program that is expected to cushion investors’ losses, the Times quoted lawyers as saying.

The Times story for the first time identified the person who was the apparent link between the bank and Madoff.
