City Council Minority Leader Tom Saadi speaks out on parade ordinance controversy


Cross post from HatCityBLOG

Recently, I spoke with City Council Minority Leader Tom Saadi about the recent decision by Mark Boughton to dissolve the parade ordinance ad-hoc committee.

Although Mayor Boughton and Council President Joe Cavo promised in 2007 to form a committee to address the various concerns with the controversial ordinance, in the three and a half years of it’s existence, the committee never met and this month, the mayor dissolve the ad-hoc and has left the legislation in tact.

In upcoming posts, I’ll provide background information on this highly disturbing ordinance that infringes on Danbury resident’s First Amendment right to assemble.
