NY Times Endorses Mioli for Re-Election in 136th District

Joe Mioli: “What is not ordinary is his common sense.” WN file photo
The New York Times today endorsed freshman Democrat Joe Mioli for re-election to Connecticut’s 136th General Assembly District from Westport. He is the first Democrat to hold the seat in 30 years.

The full text of the editorial in the Sunday Connecticut section:

“The Democratic incumbent, Joe Mioli, is being challenged by Bill Harris, a magazine publisher. We appreciate the fact that intelligent candidates like Mr. Harris are willing to invest the time and effort into making a run for office at a time when the Republican party needs resuscitation.

“But Mr. Mioli, who is completing his first term in office, gets our endorsement. Mr. Mioli says his story is an ordinary one — he came here as a penniless 21-year-old and built a good life running a pizza restaurant in Westport. What is not ordinary is his common sense.

Hazardous Waste Collection Day Yields Hand Grenade

(UPDATE)There was some really hazardous household waste turned in today at the Westport Fire Department’s household hazardous waste collection day on Bayberry Lane—a decades-old live hand grenade.

“A woman just handed it over and said it was a war souvenir from her father,” said Inspector Nathaniel Gibbons. “I asked her if it was live and she said ‘yes.’”

He said it was part of a load of paint, pesticides and other types of hazardous materials delivered by the woman at about 11:50 a.m.

Gibbons said he removed the grenade to a safe spot away from the 50-gallon drums of other household waste and summoned local and state police.

Dems and Shays Denounce GOP Attack Mailers on Farrell

WestportNow.com Image
Sen. Christopher Dodd (c) and other Democrats today denounced Republican campaign mailers to area households attacking 4th Congressional District candidate Diane Farrell. They spoke at a news conference outside Westport’s Center for Senior Activities. “This is absolutely the worst kind of politics in America,’’ Dodd said. “The people who associate themselves with that party and these things must be held accountable.’’ Several hours later, Farrell’s opponent, Rep. Christopher Shays, issued a statement repudiating a mailer claiming Farrell is supported by a group sympathetic to the Taliban. “I call on the NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee) to put an end to sending this type of garbage to 4th District mailboxes,” he said. He added that the Democrats “and shadow organizations working on her (Farrell’s) behalf have made negative, misleading and outrageous charges against me for three years and she has said nothing about them.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
