Weston officials hold anti-domestic violence ceremony

WESTON - Weston officials are pointing to a series of statewide, high-profile domestic-violence cases as they try to focus public attention on family abuse. Officials held a ceremony today at the city's Town Hall, where First Selectman Gayle Weinstein (D-Weston) said combating violence should be a community effort. She also signed a domestic-violence proclamation and presented it to the crowd. "I don't want to breed a generation of children who then become adults who are used to this cycle of domestic violence," Weinstein said. Officials have labeled October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
