NORWALK - The mayors of three large southwestern Connecticut towns met Wednesday at the Doubletree Hotel in Norwalk to discuss the problems plaguing their cities.

The mayors from Norwalk, Stamford and Bridgeport have considered themselves on the frontlines of issues people deal with in their municipalities.

While Norwalk and Stamford Mayors Richard Moccia and Dan Malloy have attended these discussions before, they were excited to hear from Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch.

The three discussed many local issues including distribution of education funds, economic development and national issues, such as the housing market and energy woes.
