Westport Democrats Pleased With Fundraiser
Westport Democrats kicked off the election season with a weekend fundraiser that added thousands of dollars to their campaign chest, according to Democratic Town Committee chair Martha Aasen.
We had a wonderful turnout,Ӕ she told WestportNow today. She said more than 250 people attended the Friday night affair, which charged $40 admission in advance and $50 at the door.
Aasen declined to cite specific figures but said contributions were enhanced by sales at a wine tasting and bids at a silent auction.
Westport First Selectwoman Diane Goss Farrell, who is not up for re-election this year, led local Democrats in greeting attendees. State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz also stopped by.
