Norwalk Council Candidates Debate Ordinances

NORWALK, Conn. – What about blight in Norwalk?

Nine Common Council at large candidates answered that question Thursday night in a debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Norwalk, the Norwalk Branch of the NAACP, the Coalition of Norwalk Neighborhood Associations, The Norwalk Education Foundation and the REd APPLES.

Moderator Charlotte Garrell of Fairfield asked, "Do you support a blight ordinance like every other city in Connecticut has to effectively control blight with direct fines from the city?"

Republicans John Tobin and Doug Hempstead and Democrats Anna Duleep and Warren Pena answer the question in the video above.

The question was asked by an audience member at the debate. About 70 people attended. Most were "politicos," Lisa Brinton Thomson of REd APPLES said.
