An article in the Town Times – of Watertown and Oakville, Connecticut – revealed the plans of former Watertown city council member Dick Wick to form a third party. Dissatisfied with the vetting process for city council candidates of both Democrats and Republicans, Mr. Wick decided that he needed to form his own party. And this one will exist, at least for now, solely for the purpose of electing at least three members to the Watertown city council.
According to Wikipedia, Watertown is a town of roughly 22,300 situated in western Connecticut. According to Wick, its city council was dominated by “puppet politics.” To solve that problem, he has decided to have a meeting on December 9th for anyone interested in helping the new party or running for city council as a member of it. The meeting will be held at 7 PM at the Thomaston Savings Bank.
