Kelo V. New London- Eminent Domain-House Dedication- Saturday, June 21-RESEND
- To Political Graveyard Discussion Group:
FYI! THIS IS BEING RESENT FOR BETTER USE!
I have a lot of admiration for Susette Kelo the
"Kelo" of Kelo v. New London. The case about
Eminent Domain was a sad one about people in the
Fort Trumbull section of New London, Connecticut;
being forced from their homes so the city could
have their property to be used for economic
Susette Kelo fought Eminent Domain and her home
she fought to protect was moved and a ribbon
cutting ceremony will be held there on Saturday,
June 21 from 1 to 3 P.M.,.The location is 36
Franklin Street,. Remarks by Ms. Kelo and others
will be at 1:30 P.M.,. RSVP by June 20TH to
Melanie Hildreth at 703-682-9320,ext 222 or
mhildreth@... ,. Check out
I have been in that house when it was in its
original location. I went to Hartford three times
with Mrs. Kelo and testified twice before
legislative committees. I had the honor of
introducing her at a Regional Republican event
hosted by the Rhode Island Republican Assembly
http://www.ri-ra.org/ in Warwick, Rhode Island.
Susette also appeared at my Grange Hall in North
Stonington, Connecticut; which I was involved in.
My interest in Eminent Domain started in my
youth. I had an uncle who lost his farm through
Eminent Domain because of Route#95 near Exit#93
on the RI/CT line,.However the circumstances I
acknowledge, are not the same as as with my uncle
and Mrs. Kelo and her Fort Trumbull neighbors but
both lost property because of Eminent Domain.
