Hillary Clinton Stumps for Farrell

Clinton, who also campaigned for Farrell in 2004 in her first bid to unseat U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays, criticized Republicans’ handling of the Iraq war and the federal budget following an appearance at a $1,000 per person fundraiser in a private home.

Clinton praised Farrell for her fiscal leadership in Westport as first selectman. She said Farrell would ask tough questions of the Bush administration on the Iraq war, economic policies and what she called the squeeze on the middle class.

“We need her in Washington,” Clinton said during a news conference outside the fundraiser. “We need her common sense and independence.”

Michael and Kim Ronemus invite Westporters to visit the circa 1830 Meeker House—the town’s first automobile service station—which they saved from demolition because they were pained to see it neglected. (See WestportNow May 20, 2006)

The open house is aimed at gaining community support for an application to the Zoning Board of Appeals to convert the property, which has a number of outbuildings, to a one-family dwelling with a studio.

The couple received approval Wednesday from Historic Preservation Council in Hartford as a step in the process of seeking historic designation for the house.

Saugatuck Station to Get Security Cameras

Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced today that work will begin this month to install 16 security cameras at Westport’s Saugatuck Railroad Station.

“Our rail commuters deserve a safe and convenient ride on the train and the peace of mind of knowing that our stations are as secure as they can possibly be,” Rell said in a statement.

An announcement said in addition to Westport, Branford would receive four cameras for its Shoreline East station and New Haven 26 cameras for its Metro-North station.

Funding for the $250,000 project was obtained by the Department of Transportation through a grant from the Connecticut Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, Rell’s office said.
