Waterside has new city representative


STAMFORD — The Board of Representatives voted Monday night to approve the appointment of Virgil de la Cruz to represent Waterside’s District 2 neighborhood.

De la Cruz sits on the Waterside Coalition’s Board of Directors and the Democratic City Committee. He replaced former District 2 city Rep. Ben Velishka, who resigned in June to spend more time with his family.
