Group Seeks to End Nastiness in Government
Theres a new grassroots group in Connecticut aimed at ending nastiness in government. No, not in Westport—in New Milford in Litchfield County.
The News-Times of Danbury says New Milford residents formed the group Җ Friends for a Better New Milford about two weeks ago in an effort to bring civility back to town politics and government.
Westport never had a formal group aimed at making town government and politics more civil. But there was an unofficial effort to do just that led by Woody Klein, former editor of the Westport News, through his columns and editorials. From recent headlines and stories in the local papers, maybe it’s time for Woody to revive his campaign.
