An open letter to the City of Ansonia:
The reason I ran for Alderman was to give greater public service to the people of the second ward of the City of Ansonia.
This process started in Kabul, Afghanistan during the time I was deployed on active duty with the U.S. Army.

Ansonia honored police officers Tuesday for acts ranging from the remarkable to the routine, from saving a baby choking on formula to showing stick-to-itiveness while investigating a minor car crash.
But that was only fitting, several who spoke at Tuesday’s ceremony said, because cops leave their homes every morning never knowing just what they’ll have to deal with.
“You run toward danger and uncertainty when most are running in the other direction,” Police Chief Kevin Hale told award recipients during Tuesday night’s ceremony in the Ansonia High School auditorium.

A new business formally opened in downtown Ansonia Tuesday.
Cafe 252, the brainchild of Eastchester, N.Y. resident Mario Clemente and his family, opened its doors to about a dozen officials and customers during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Clemente, who ran a pizzeria in the Bronx when he was 16 years old, said he spent 25 years working in the construction business before deciding to take another shot at the food service business.
