Presidents make State of the Union speeches. Governors have their own (weirdly named) State of the States.
Now Westport introduces the State of the Town.
Unlike the other events, this one is a public forum. Questions are welcome from normal (as in, you and I) citizens.
It’s set for Sunday, January 28 (4 p.m., Town Hall). First Selectman Jim Marpe and Board of Education chair Michael Gordon will discuss town and school issues. Both are in charge of big budgets — and both wield important influence on what this town is, and where it’s going.
The State of the Town is a joint project of Westport Sunrise Rotary and the Westport Rotary Club. Incoming presidents Eileen Flug and Jeff Wieser joined current presidents Ron Holtz and Susie Basler to make the event a reality.
The State of the Town is a great way to learn what’s going on — and give feedback.
