Why Westport? It is a community with character. It has the ability to come together and make a difference. I think that because I am new to the area, I am able to see so many of the good things and not some of the past that seems to frustrate people. I see the government (especially Shelly Kassen) truly committed to creating a town that embraces the New England traditions. Everyone has been so supportive in the changes I have made at the market - all I can feel is gratitude for this warm welcome to Westport. It has not only supported my mission of getting more people to support local it has promoted it.
