Westport’s Democratic First Selectwoman, Diane G. Farrell, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays in the fall election, told supporters Monday in Greenwich that Shays has lost touch with the concerns of voters in the 4th Congressional District, The Advocate of Stamford/Norwalk reported today.
“I’ve been here the past 10 years, eating, sleeping and breathing the issues of this district,” said Farrell, according to the newspaper. “Chris has been in Washington for the past 16 years.”
Farrell’s comments came during an hour-long lunchtime forum with about 40 people, including former Greenwich First Selectman Richard Bergstresser, at Town Hall.
The brief speech, followed by a question-and-answer session, was Farrell’s first public appearance in Greenwich since she announced her candidacy last month.
