Donald J. Trump is our president-elect!
But once upon a time he was just a New York City real estate tycoon trying to build a golf course next to the Village of Mount Kisco, N.Y.‘s water supply.
Valley Indy reporter Eugene Driscoll — then a reporter with The Patent Trader, a dead weekly newspaper — interviewed Trump about his plans about 16 years ago.
Driscoll found the cassette tape with the audio interview in his basement earlier this month, and so now it’s a podcast!
Press play to listen.

Donald Trump won the popular vote in the lower Naugatuck Valley, and voters threw out two incumbent Democrats on the state level.
Yet they also voted for one of the most progressive members of the U.S. House of Representatives — Rosa DeLauro — and they chose to stick with U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, another Democrat.

Should Derby eliminate a rule that prevents city employees from becoming elected officials — and prohibits public officials from doing business with the city — unless they get a waiver from the Board of Aldermen?
It’s one of two city charter question Derby voters will answer when they go to the polls Tuesday, Nov. 8.
And it’s the topic of an in-depth discussion the Valley Indy hosted last month with Aldermen Carmen DiCenso, Joe DiMartino and Art Gerckens, along with Charter Revision Commission member Adam Pacheco and Walt Mayhew, a former member of the Board of Aldermen, the Board of Education and the Derby tax board.

The 105th state house district covers parts of Derby and Beacon Falls, but its main battleground is Seymour — the home town of the candidates in this year’s election to represent it.
Democratic incumbent Theresa Conroy and Republican challenger Nicole Klarides-Ditria have both served recently on the town’s Board of Selectmen, where Klarides-Ditria currently serves as deputy to First Selectman Kurt Miller.

The state’s Republicans have marked this year’s election for the 17th Senate District as one of their “races to watch” in the GOP’s bid to take back the majority in Hartford.
And their Republican nominee, water company executive George Logan, has been on the attack against 12-term incumbent Democrat Joseph Crisco since declaring his candidacy.
If Crisco — who brushed aside a spirited challenge by Ansonia Alderman Phil Tripp in 2014 — is concerned about it, he isn’t letting on.

Linda Gentile’s bid for a seventh term representing the state’s 104th House District may be her toughest in some time.
Gentile, a Democrat who cruised to victory by nearly double the votes of her Republican challenger two years ago, is facing off against Republican nominee Joseph Jaumann, a lawyer and chairman of the Ansonia Planning and Zoning Commission who has sought to tie Gentile to the policies of her fellow Democrat, Gov. Dannel Malloy.
