The second question we have asked is about economic development downtown and why the borough wants to adhere to the principles of "smart growth," which means people would "live, work and play" in the same area of a downtown. It was the general idea behind Renaissance Place and one that the borough is pursuing on a much smaller scale.
Editor's Note: We sat down with Jim O'Sullivan, Republican challenger, on Thursday for an interview. He says he is now campaigning, despite putting his campaign on hiatus after having a health scare with a heart problem, and plans to make a late surge in the race. We will post the article sometime over the weekend. Please look out for that in our daily newsletters, our Facebook page and on our Twitter handle. Or right here on the homepage of Naugatuck Patch.
