Senator Chris Murphy was joined Friday by Waterbury Police Chief Vernon L. Riddick Jr., Deputy Chiefs William Covel and Fred Spagnolo, state Reps. Jeff Berger, Geraldo Reyes Jr. and Larry Butler, Naugatuck Mayor Pete Hess, and Rick Dunne from the Council of Governments for a press conference at the Waterbury Train Station. They spoke of efforts to increase Waterbury Police and MTA Police patrols at the station parking lot in the wake of a series of car break-ins earlier this year. All parties agreed that patrolling the area is a priority and the two police agencies are coordinating their efforts. Chief Riddick noted that after the recent arrest of a suspect, there have been no reported break-ins the entire month of June. A strong rail system is key to Mayor O'Leary's plans for revitalizing our Downtown and having a safe commuter lot is an important part of those plans. Berger spoke of the state's pending plans to improve the lot and its infrastructure. Thanks to all who came out.

Patti LaydenGood job Mr. Mayor. Now please start going after the deadbeats using their dead great grandmothers handicapped stickers so us real handicapped people don't have to walk across the parking lot or return home because we can't make it to the front door of a business.

Swimming pools at Fulton & Washington Parks set to open Saturday June 25

The swimming pools at Fulton and Washington Parks are set to open Saturday June 25 once Health Department inspectors test the water and determine it is safe. The pool at Hamilton Park may take a little longer to open as work is still being done on it. We will update this posting over the weekend as more information becomes available.

Congratulations to Brent LaPrade, our 2016 Franco-American Mayor for the Day. Brent is a former Army sergeant, 28-year veteran of the Waterbury Police Department and a retired federal court officer. He is an active member of the Shrine of St. Anne and he and his lovely wife Jeanne support many worthwhile organizations and causes in Waterbury. But for all his accomplishments, Brent is most proud of his family, which includes their four children and nine grandchildren. He is truly blessed.
