New Poll Gives Farrell Edge

A new poll published today gives Democrat Diane Farrell a 4 point advantage over Rep. Christopher Shays in Connecticut’s 4th Congressional District race.

But because the latest poll carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points, it also suggests that the closely watched contest remains a statistical dead heat.

Sponsored by the Manchester Journal Inquirer and The Day of New London, the poll by Research 2000, an Olney, Md., polling firm, of 600 likely voters in the 4th Congressional District was conducted by telephone between Thursday and Saturday.

It shows the former Westport first selectwoman leading Shays by a 47 percent to 43 percent margin, with 10 percent undecided.

Board’s Y Decision Appealed

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

A resident living near Camp Mahackeno has filed a law suit to overturn the Flood and Erosion Control Board’s approval of the Westport-Weston Family Y’s plan to construct a new facility at the camp.

Attorney Edward Lerner filed an appeal in Stamford Superior Court on Friday on behalf of his client Arthur Cohen, who lives on Old Hill Road. It was served to various Westport officials on Saturday.

The suit cites the Flood and Erosion Control Board, the state Department of Environmental Protection and the Westport-Weston Family Y.

The suit states that the board acted “illegally arbitrarily and in abuse of the discretion vested in it and in violation of its own regulations and state law” for 10 reasons.

Edwards Named to State Committee

Westport Public Works Director Stephen Edwards will serve as an ad hoc member of the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority to vote on issues concerning the Bridgeport project, Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced today.

The Bridgeport Project provides solid waste disposal and recycling services to 20 Connecticut municipalities in Fairfield and New Haven counties. The project consists of a 2,250 ton-per-day mass-burn trash-to-energy facility, eight transfer stations, two landfills, a regional recycling center and the Children’s Garbage Museum.

“Steve brings a wealth of experience to this position and his dedication to the community is a logical extension of the service he has provided to the citizens of Connecticut for more than 20 years,” Rell said in a statement.

“His concern for the well-being of our state, combined with his professional background, makes him well-qualified to serve on the authority as an ad hoc member.”

Connecticut Post Endorses Shays

The Connecticut Post, which endorsed Democrat Diane Farrell two years ago, today endorsed incumbent Republican Christopher Shays for re-election. The newspaper is published in Bridgeport, where Shays lives.

The text of the editorial: “Even more so than two years ago, voters in Fairfield County’s 4th Congressional District face a gut-wrenching decision at the polls on Nov. 7 in a campaign that is being viewed nationally as a bellwether of American politics in 2006.

“The race pits a rematch between 19-year Republican incumbent Christopher Shays of Bridgeport and his challenger; Democrat Diane Farrell, the former first selectwoman of Westport. 

“Both are articulate, progressive politicians who are well versed on the issues, the district and its citizens.  They are more alike on issues than apart.  Shays’ experience aside, either candidate would make a fine congressperson for the district, which covers lower Fairfield County and swings northward from Bridgeport into the lower Naugatuck Valley.
