Reminder to Cos Cob Residents: P & Z Meeting Tomorrow at 7 pm

Reminder to Cos Cob Residents Fighting for Residential Rights - Attend P & Z Meeting this Tuesday, November 27th at 7pm. Your presence matters!

Cos Cob Families Fighting for Residential Rights  reminds Cos Cob residents to show up at the Planning and Zoning Meeting, tomorrow night, Tuesday November 27th at 7pm at Town Hall.

The weather forecast for Tuesday is messy (early snow changing to wintry mix) but it is important that we have a strong showing to disprove the narrative that we are just a few, loud, negative voices, and let the P & Z know that we are large, close-knit neighborhood united in our opposition to this project.

A very important reminder - see you there!

Sarah- I see you are a writer, not just of novels but you write for www.ctnewsjunkie.com. Interesting how you recently wrote a VERY negative article about Mitt Romney's loss in the elections and you basically ripped apart the Republicans..yet you thought nothing of asking your LOCAL Republican officials to defend your position on the GRS issue at the town hall meeting tonight. You are a total self serving hypocrite. It's similar to your comments about your being a practicing Jew and how this isn't about religion (and personally, I don't think it is) yet your novel is entitled "CONFESSIONS OF A CLOSET CATHOLIC." Make up your mind- you are disgraceful.

Anthony - seeing as that my LOCAL representatives are Republican, who else would I ask? I also believe in bipartisanship and working together to achieve a common goal for the good of the community. It's too bad more people in Congress (and locally) don't feel the same way. As for your ad hominem attack on my religious practice and linking it to my book CONFESSIONS OF A CLOSET CATHOLIC, it only proves your ignorance. Perhaps you should try reading the book before you start throwing around personal attacks, especially since it was awarded the 2006 Sydney Taylor Award for Older Readers by the Association of Jewish Libraries for Excellence in Jewish literature. By the way, it was also included in the Catholic News Service's "10 Books Suitable for Christmas Gift Giving" that year. Making this about personal attacks rather than keeping it to the issues is what is disgraceful.

I just read this post- anyone interested in reading about the article that Sarah wrote about Republicans should click on this link below. I'm a Cos Cob resident--not so sure I want you taking a stance for our little community. I agree with the above comment- you are now saying you believe in bipartisanship?? NOW that you NEED something?? Gross. Pick another leader. Here's the article if any of you are interested. http://www.ctnewsjunkie.com/ctnj.php/archives/entry/gop_reality_check_time/

Hey Tony Giapado and Ella, You are not Kim and Randy perchance?

My thoughts exactly EliQB. It doesn’t matter...Republican...Democrat...those representing us are doing so because they actually care about what happens to this neighborhood. Let’s just end this ridiculous thread.

Anthony, If you were to read Confessions of a Closet Catholic, you'd know that it has a very strong pro-Judaism message, so "make up your mind" is really not an appropriate comment about it. (It also happens to be a great read for people of all religions.) Per your statement that you think opposition to the proposed house of worship is "about religion," all I'd say to that is imagine a facility ten times the size of your house in your back yard, plus parking for a 100 cars.
