State Sen. Alex Bergstein | Stamford Advocate | Feb. 1, 2019

Democratic State Senator Alex Bergstein (36th district) reviews the positive public response to her "Community Conversations," contrasting it with the continuing efforts by the CT GOP Party to attack and misrepresent her positions. 

 

In her op-ed, Sen. Bergstein remarks,  "I have many Republican friends who are unaware that their own party chairman, J.R. Romano, made videos and podcasts about me, which are so full of untruths they’re laughable. The reality I’ve experienced working with fellow Republican legislators is exactly the opposite — they are consistently civil and collaborative. So why are official Republican party communications full of malice and misrepresentation?"

"The Greenwich Democratic Town Committee (GDTC) was dismayed to learn that the first selectman is waiving town meeting room policies by welcoming a divisive right-wing for-profit media company, America’s Voice News, to hold an event at Town Hall.

That First Selectman Peter Tesei, along with state Rep. Fred Camillo, is legitimizing this promotional stunt by agreeing to make opening remarks is deeply disappointing and does not reflect or respect the diverse and open-minded beliefs of the Greenwich Community."

Mike Warner | Greenwich Time | Jan. 23, 2019

"Confronted with town capital spending requests, budget hawks in the Board of Estimate and Taxation and Representative Town Meeting are fond of asking one question, 'Is this improvement really a “need” for the town? Or is this an improvement that’s just a “nice to have” item? Because our town can’t afford to spend on “Nice to haves.”'

 

This is entirely the wrong question, however..."

"To all Republican elected officials: 

 

As members of the party whose leader occupies the White House, you have influence that members of the opposition party do not. I am urging you to speak out against President Donald Trump’s policy of separating children from parents who are entering the country illegally."

Joanna Swomley, Nerlyn Pierson, Marina Rosin Levine, David Weisbrod & others | Greenwich Free Press | Jun. 8, 2018

"In an Op-Ed piece in the June 7 Greenwich Time, Peter Tesei and Richard DiPreta ask, “What is the Trump agenda in Greenwich”?

These two leaders of the Greenwich Republican party purport not to know what Trumpism is and how it impacts our Town. While this may be feigned ignorance, it is nonetheless useful to answer their question as Indivisible Greenwich attempts to do every day."

Lucy von Brachel | Greenwich Time | May 24, 2018

District 4 leader and RTM member Lucy von Brachel questions whether attempts by some to lower property taxes is serving the Town's longer term interests. 

 

"There is no question that Greenwich has benefited from our fiscal conservativism during uncertain times, but while some argue for tightening our belts one more notch, others of us believe we have reached a tipping point."

Nerlyn Pierson, Andrea Levine, Molly Colombo, Jonathan Perloe | Greenwich Time | Mar. 29, 2018

​As people left the polls on Election Day, I’m sure they took for granted that no matter which voting district they live in their vote would matter, and the candidates who received the most votes in each race would be declared the winner. That’s the way it works for virtually all the 500,000-plus elected officials in the United States, except for one: the president of the United States....

Stephen Fuzesi, Jr. | Hartford Cournant | Feb. 8, 2018

Politicians have long come to Greenwich to search for gold in the deepest pockets on Connecticut’s “gold coast,” but now the town is emerging as a key community in Connecticut politics. It’s about getting out the vote and seeking a voice — one with a growing blueish tint.

John Blankley | Greenwich Free Press | Dec. 29, 2017

In early January a new Board of Estimate and Taxation (the “BET”) will be sworn in – under the effective control of Democrats for the first time ever in our town’s history, as far as we are aware. I thought it would be worthwhile to reflect on this change and set out a couple of hopes and aspirations for our new finance board. I myself have had the honor and pleasure of serving for two terms on the BET and am leaving the board as I continue my exploratory campaign for State Treasurer.

Jonathan Perloe | Greenwich Time | Jun 2, 2017

In “Controversy reignites in Greenwich over Scout plaque” (May 30 news article), First Selectman Peter Tesei called me “very militant and intolerant” for opposing a plaque on town property that honors the Campfire Club of America, an organization that opposes common-sense gun laws. The first selectman inaccurately accused me of belittling the Boy Scouts of Greenwich...
