What do you believe are the two most important issues the RTM must address and what solutions would you propose?
Westport’s a great town with wonderful amenities. But Westport’s a victim of its success – traffic is bad, Compo Beach is congested, there is a dearth of affordable and senior housing. We can’t build a moat around Westport and stop all growth. Developers will continue building, families will continue moving to Westport, and others will continue shopping here and using our train stations and beaches. However, the RTM can use its powers to approve appropriations, to pass ordinances, and provide input through public committee meetings, to ensure these issues are addressed in ways that work for Westport and are financially prudent.
