Once a month, radio host Judge Lisa Wexler hosts a political talk podcast from Wilton’s Orem’s Diner that airs on the recently debuted Fairfield County TalkRadio. During the most recent show, recorded Thursday, July 25, Wexler invited GOOD Morning Wilton editor Heather Borden Herve to chat about what’s happening on the political landscape in Wilton and the growing reach of GMW and local, independent, online news media.
Their discussion during the hour-long broadcast starts at around the 38:00 minute mark. Among the topics they cover include who’s eligible to vote in Wilton; whether people are Republican, Democrat or unaffiliated; and what voters might expect in the coming municipal election season.
Also a guest on the show is Bill Lalor, the chair of the Wilton Republican Town Committee, who talked about the meeting his RTC had two nights prior to endorse candidates for the upcoming November municipal election.

Gail Lavielle, State Sen. Will Haskell, Wilton First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice and former State Sen. Toni Boucher.
