Fairfield RTM Restores $350K Town Contribution to Pequot Library

Fairfield's Representative Town Meeting voted Monday to restore the town's $350,000 contribution to Pequot Library before a standing room-only crowd of residents, many of them Pequot Library supporters. The vote to restore the full contribution came in a 43-3 vote, with John Mitola, D-2, Ruth Smey, D-5, and Eric Newman, D-7 opposing. "We get to be a three-library town because of Pequot Library at a substantial savings," David Becker, R-1, said in support of the Southport library, which raises 70 percent of its operating budget. He and his fellow RTM Republicans previously announced the caucus' unanimous support for restoring the contribution. Some RTM Democrats voiced their support, but spoke in light of a process that has yet to run its course.
