  • Llodra Reports To Newly Seated Council On School Security Developments

    It was an odd image, seeing Jeff Capeci seated at an audience microphone during the public comments portion of Wednesday's Legislative Council meeting.

    But as he was briefly honored by newly elected council Chair Mary Ann Jacob for his years of elected service, the former chairman had nothing but congratulations to offer.

    "I look forward to following everything you do," Mr Capeci said to the 11 members who gathered for the first meeting of their new two-year term. Council member Lisa Romano arrived later.

  • Communication And Accessibility

    To the Editor:

    I’d like to take a moment to thank all the voters who cast their ballots to elect me as one of the four representatives from our district on the Legislative Council.  It’s a tremendous honor, and I look forward to acting on your behalf in all the challenging decisions ahead. It has a deep personal meaning for me because my grandfather, James Knapp, Sr, who many of you may have known, also served Newtown on the Legislative Council. I know I have some big shoes to fill.

  • An Honor

    To the Editor: I’m writing to say thank you to the folks who took a few minutes to cast their vote and elect me for a second term on the Legislative Council representing District 1. This is an honor. With the interests and concerns of all residents in mind, I wish to continue moving forward finding common ground with fellow council members. Please feel free to contact me with any thoughts. I look forward to continuing serving our great community. Joe Girgasky Legislative Council – District 1 Lake Road, Newtown November 13, 2013

  • Meeting The Needs Of District 3

    To the Editor:

    I would like to thank the voters in District 3 for allowing me the privilege of representing their interests on the Legislative Council.

    It is always a bit of a leap of faith to select someone new to a position, and I will strive to see that faith rewarded.  There are many initiatives and moving pieces in town at the moment and I will endeavor to see to it that the needs of District 3 are not lost in the shuffle.

  • The Importance Of Facts And Common Sense

    To the Editor:

    I would like to thank Newtown for granting me the opportunity to continue serving on our Legislative Council. I appreciate the support from the District 3 voters, and I look forward to helping our town prosper and grow. Whereas serving as an un-elected official this past year has been a challenging experience, it has primarily been immensely rewarding. I am grateful to be able continue in this role as an elected official.

  • Appreciative And Hopeful

    To the Editor:

    I’m writing to say thank you to the voters of District 1 for allowing me to continue my role as your Democratic Legislative Council representative.  I truly appreciate the opportunity.

    To those who didn’t vote for me, I promise do my best to earn your respect and see if maybe next time around I can earn your vote too.
