Norwich, Conn. —
What a fight is going on in the 19th Senatorial District. Cathy Osten
and Chris Coutu both want the seat opened by Edith Prague’s retirement.
Mr. Coutu seems to think that any publicity is good publicity for his
campaign. In Sprague, where Mr. Coutu’s face is hardly seen except
around elections — and then only on his campaign signs — he recently
appeared at a Board of Selectmen’s meeting to help a constituent who was
upset over what might be, as Mr. Coutu put it, a “frightening abuse of
executive power.” In case you didn’t know, that’s what Coutu calls it
when a town’s chief of police, who just happens to be First Selectman
Osten, his opponent in this race, installs a stop sign for public
safety. Yes, a stop sign.
Politicizing petty issues for political gain. It’s what Mr. Coutu does
best. That’s the sign voters should stop and think about.
