The Coalition for Westport (CFW), a nonpartisan group focusing on town land use issues—and that unsuccessfully ran three Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) candidates in November—has received official acceptance as a political party from the Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission (SEEC), officials announced today.
According to Denise Torv, a Democrat who ran for and lost a seat on the P&Z, as did Republican David Press and Glenn Payne, who is unaffiliated, CFW offers an alternative to the town’s other minor party, Save Westport Now (SWN), a more than 30-year-old environmental and preservation group.
“CFW believes in an active, not static vision for the town that will consider its needs now and in the future of all Westporters,” Torve said. “It advocates for a P&Z that provides a framework for planned and controlled growth that is of optimum benefit to the town, its residents and property owners.
“It believes in open minds and open discussion by members that respect the past, while embracing the future,” she added.
