Jennifer Tooker Testifies on HB 5429
WESTPORT, March 14, 2022 - As delivered - To the State Assembly Planning & Zoning Committee. Senator Cassano, Representative McCarthy-Vahey, Senator Hwang, Representative Zullo, and members of the Planning and Development Committee. My name is Jennifer Tooker and I am the newly-elected First Selectwoman of Westport. Thank you to Representative Steinberg for allowing me and Planning and Zoning Commission Chair, Danielle Dobin to jointly testify.
I want to express my opposition to HB 5429. I understand the bill intends to foster hubs of commercial and residential activity around public transit stations, therefore increasing economic opportunity with minimum impact on the environment.

Jennifer Tooker State of the Town Address
WESTPORT, February 6, 2022 - As delivered - To the Rotary Clubs, thank you to both for hosting the annual State of Town Address. As a Sunrise Rotarian, who doesn’t make many meetings lately, I so appreciate all that you do for the community. Thank you to the Library for allowing us to use your space and technology to reach as many Westporters as possible. It is an honor and a pleasure to be here with you to share the progress Westport has made over the past year, and to update you on some of the exciting opportunities that we are now pursuing.
I’ve officially celebrated 8 weeks in office. And it has been quite a ride. But first, let’s talk about the past year.
WILTON -- People do not feel safe in our state. Every time you turn on the news, there's a new story about crime, car break-ins, and violence. Multiple bills approved in Hartford have tied the hands of law enforcement and had a chilling effect on the ability to police in our state. I will make sure Connecticut focuses on reviewing and reforming our laws to achieve a safer Connecticut.
