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.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 22 Long Lots Lane Image
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 22 Long Lots Lane is in process. Built in 1954, the 1-1/4 story cape has 1,517-square feet, is situated on a .26-acre property and changed ownership in November for $550,000. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for

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 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

Between 250 and 300 Westport women are set to take part in the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, the first day of Donald Trump’s presidency, Melissa Kane, chairman of Democratic Town Committee, said today.

“We are going to make a very loud statement that we are watching, and that we are not going to stand for the overturning of any of the rights we have fought so hard for,” said Kane, who added that a sign making session was held on Monday.

She is one of Connecticut’s 20 women organizers who expect to turn out 5,000 to 6,000 women statewide for the rally. She said that about 200,000 women from across the country are expected.

Kane said two buses are set to leave from Westport at 1:30 a.m. Saturday, but she declined to disclose the location(s).
