This morning’s possible bias crime destruction of Pride lights on the Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge drew swift reaction.
Westport Police quickly identified the responsible party. They’re working with the state Attorney’s Office on a possible motive, and potential criminal charges.
The Westport Downtown Association quickly installed colored balloons, replacing those that were taken.
And a group of volunteers — including Police Chief Foti Koskinas, RTM members Harris Falk and Sal Liccione, Emma Rojas of the WDA, Rae Suba of Child’s Play Clinic and activist Sarah Manning — hung the same banner that decorated the Pride rally 6 days earlier.
Where is it?
On the Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge.
Not far from the lights that could not be dimmed by last night’s action.
