As a neurodivergent policymaker and activist, I want to canonize reasonable accommodations and ensure we all receive better education on sensory concerns and considerations.
What is community policing if not trusting the police to communicate about issues of public safety in a transparent and open dialogue with the community? As a councilman representing Hamden’s Fifth District, anything less than that is unacceptable, especially now.
About a year ago, I attended a friend’s housewarming party in Hartford. After bouncing between a few events in Hamden and New Haven on my bike, I took a 40-minute ride on the Hartford Rail Line and then biked the rest of the way to my friend’s new house. It was a Sunday evening; I arrived in Hartford at around 5 o’clock.
