  • Post Election Legislative Update
                        Post Election Legislative Update Where do we go from here? The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce in association with the Connecticut Business and Industry Association, as part of their CT20X17 campaign, will host a Post Election Legislative Update, entitled “Where do we go from here? “ at the Westport Library on Thursday December 4th at 9am in the McManus room. All three incumbent legislators, Senator Toni Boucher [R] 26th district, Representative Jonathan Steinberg [D] 136th district, Representative Gail Lavielle [R] 143rd district will be joined by newly elected Senator Tony Hwang [R] 28th district to discuss where they think the state will be going during the next session. The open forum will be moderated by Matthew Mandell the Executive Director of the WWCC. “I’m pleased that all of our elected officials are coming to share their thoughts and vision,” said Mandell. “This is a great opportunity for our business people and residents alike to come ask questions and see how they will be represented.” “CBIA, along with 70 other business groups, support the CT20x17 campaign because making the state a top 20 state by 2017 would not only improve the economy and create jobs, but sustain our great quality of life and create a better future for everyone,” said Bonnie Stewart, CBIA’s vice president, government affairs & general counsel. “Legislators need to hear from their constituents,” she continued, “and it is through meetings, such as this one with the Westport Chamber, that meaningful conversations on the importance of CT20x17 can…
  • Chamber Brings Back Slice of Sauguatuck
      The Slice of Saugatuck Returns       The third annual Slice of Saugatuck Festival is fast approaching with lawn signs, banners and posters popping up all over town announcing its return. This crowd pleaser of an event is set to go off on Sunday September 14, from 1-4pm (rain date Sept 21). The family friendly Wine & Food and Retail Experience has once again expanded, both in the number of participating venues and what is being offered to the festival goer, especially kids. “The festival is back and it’s bigger,” said WWCC Executive Director Matthew Mandell, “Not only will there be tastings at over two dozen eateries, and great offerings by all the other merchants; there will be a mini maker space, drones, obstacle courses, bouncy houses, magicians, hoola hoops and rock climbing. The kids are going to love it.” Also added this year, will be a retrospective of historic Saugatuck created by the Town curator Kathie Bennewitz. It will feature many old photos of the area, historic items and a copy of the, currently being restored, Saugatuck Mural by Robert Lambdin. “Overall it’s a triple win for Westport,” Mandell continued, “it promotes the Saugatuck merchants and area, gives the community a great event and raises money for the homeless and hungry.” The Homes with Hope Gillespie Food Pantry will again be the beneficiary, having received a $5000 donation from proceeds from the prior festival. “This is a great partnership for us,” said Homes with Hope Executive Director…
  • Thousands Walk the Slice of Saugatuck
    Sunday, September 14, 2014 Thousands Walk ‘the Slice’     By James Lomuscio  From Westport Now With gastronomic gusto and under sunny September skies with the temperatures in the 60s, more than 2,500 persons today came out for Westport’s third annual Slice of Saugatuck festival. Ashley Borner of Westport cools off today with ice cream from Saugatuck Sweets at the Slice of Saugatuck Festival. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Tony Riggio for WestportNow.com Surrounded by new and old Saugatuck, they sampled an outdoor array of chilies, oysters, hot dogs, yogurt, olive oil, pulled pork, ziti and sesame chicken. The food seemed endless. So did the walk from the corner of Saugatuck and Riverside Avenues to Railroad Place. This is the heart of the once working-class Italian community now revitalized by construction of the Gault Family-owned Saugatuck Center complex of retail, residential, and offices. The Center with its two plazas was the gathering point for many of today’s 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. events. They included everything from firefighter door breaking demonstrations to making animals out of balloons. Music from three Staples High School bands and a steel drum band in front of Tarry Lodge kept the mood upbeat, the crowd energized. This was the third Slice of Saugatuck Festival. It was begun in 2011 (there was no festival last year) by Matthew Mandell, a Representative Town Meeting (RTM) member who said then he wanted to showcase the neighborhood’s redevelopment and history. “I don’t think there’s a better day for Westport than today,”…
