CT Marchers Join National Protest in Rebuke to Trump

By Ana Radelat

www.ctmirror.org

Washington – Thousands of marchers from Connecticut today joined a massive protest the day after President Donald Trump took the oath of office, saying they have to protect the environment, health care, women’s rights and a wide range of issues they say are under attack in the new administration.

WestportNow.com Image
Marta Ylane of Westport, who emigrated from Ukraine as a child after World War II, was among the marchers. She said Trump’s relationship with Russia is troubling. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Ana Radelat for CTMirror.org

“It’s important to show that women aren’t going back in time,” said Jessica Cross of Stafford.

A Navy veteran who wore an American flag like a cape to show that the marchers were “true patriots, Cross was unable to participate in protests in the past. She called the Women’s March “amazing,” especially for its “positive energy.”

As Trump attended a prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral on his first full day as president, a sea of pink-hatted protesters from across the country descended on the nation’s capital, arriving in buses, caravans and packing public transportation to gather near the National Mall.

At P&Z, New Members Confront Old Issues

By James Lomuscio

Westport’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) welcomed a new member to its ranks Thursday night—Democrat Danielle Dobin.

She was recommended by the Democratic Town Committee (DTC) to replace David Lessing who resigned in November.

As she took her seat, Dobin was not the only new member at the dais. Longtime P&Z alternate Al Gratrix recently became a full time member replacing Jack Whittle who stepped down last month.

And just when it seemed that the dust from musical chairs had ended, Democrat Andra Vebell cranked up the music again. She announced that after three years she would be stepping down.

According to Lt. David Farrell, Donald Potter, 29, was stopped on Post Road East near Compo Road after an officer discerned a license plate did not belong on the vehicle.

Potter also was unable to produce a driver’s license, proper registration or valid insurance, Farrell said.

“Due to the fact that Potter did not have a license or any other photo identification, he was taken into custody,” he said.

WestportREADS Author Draws Large Crowd

WestportNow.com Image
George Hodgman, author of the 2017 WestportREADS selection “Bettyville,” addressed a large audience tonight in the WestportREADS keynote talk at the Saugatuck Congregational Church. The 2015 book tackles questions about the author’s identity as a gay man, as a writer and as a son. Though there were serious moments in the book and in the events that made up the memoir, Hodgman was able to fill the hall with witty humor as he shared many of his life’s events and the words his mother spoke. The event was sponsored by the church and the Westport Library. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com
