To the Editor:

The League of Women Voters would like to inform all Wilton residents about an important meeting for Metro-North commuters to have the opportunity to meet with CT Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker. The meeting will be held on Feb. 18 at the Pequot Library in Southport, 7:30-9 p.m.. League of Women Voters of Connecticut board member Jara Burnett will be the moderator.

The purpose of the meeting is to have the commuting public hear from the Commissioner about the steps Metro-North is taking to deal with the recent delays, disruptions and other performance issues, and then be able to ask questions and voice their concerns about the Metro-North performance.

The event will be hosted by The Citizen Transportation Lobby (CTL), whose coalition members include the Business Council of Fairfield County, the Commuter Action Group, Transit for Connecticut, CFE, Regional Planning Group, Tri-State Transportation Campaign, and the LWVCT.
