Is That an Award Under the Podium? Hewett to Honor Stillman at Party Event.
State Senator Andrea Stillman will have the pleasure of receiving a distinguished service award from beleaguered state Representative Ernest Hewett on behalf of the East Lyme Democratic Town Committee on March 16th. It ought to be tense at the Lyme Tavern as Democrats gather to raise money and honor the local fixture. Also on the bill are Stillman colleagues Don Williams and Marty Looney, both averse to offering opinions in a sexual harassment controversy of the sort Hewett has brought on himself.
Greetings will be provided by Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio of New London. The bumptious Democrat has called for a state investigation of Hewett. They probably won’t be posing for photos together.
United States Representative Joseph Courtney is scheduled to present a message.
Edward Morris, East Lyme’s 87 year old Democratic town committee chairman (he campaigned for Abraham Ribicoff in the 1950s), says the event is on with no changes in the line up of speakers.
