ISSUES FACING WESTON: 

School Security

Weston Republicans in local government set an example...

Regional Transportation and Planning:

EDUCATION MANDATE RELIEF
Senator Boucher speaks to the various aspects of this problem - a problem so complex and charged - almost impossible to gain
traction in Hartford for ANY help...

PEDESTRIAN CIRCULATION PLANNING
Our representative in the 135th now Ranking Member on Environment Committee

TRIAL ON LAWSUIT ON FAA OVER - NO APPEAL HEARD AT SUPREME COURT!
FAA re-routing of flights over CT - sequester limits airport use here.

Transit Oriented Development (T.O.D.) and other outside funding
Will Weston try for a grant to unify circulation in and around its government-commercial center in 2015?
How about safety?
"Stimulous Package" focus on transportation - not much for Weston.  But wait...former Representative Stripp secured maybe
the last of its kind for Weston - a non-competitive STEAP grant in 2010 to try again to repair Revson!  THANK YOU JOHN!

Energy, etc.:
EVERSOURCE is the new name for CL&P/NU.
What effect did Gulf oil spill have on these issues?  How about Japan's triple disasters? 

"Broadwater" issue...a victory handed down by New York - will it ever come back?
Islander East case in Federal Court goes in favor of  Connecticut's position re: preserving natural value of L.I.S.
