CT couple walks fine line for Greenwich voting rights
A CT couple is fighting for voting rights in Greenwich, although most of its house sits outside town lines.The Board for Admissions of Electors met Monday at the Greenwich Town Hall to discuss a house located on Hillcrest Park Road. The house sits mostly in the city of Stamford. Jerry and Maryann Porricelli say they bought the house in 2000 as a Greenwich residence. They say their house is recognized by the postmaster only as a Greenwich residence and they say they received a letter from the Greenwich registrar welcoming them to the town. They say they deserve voting rights in the community they consider home.The state Board of Elections voted in the Porricelli?s favor in 2003. However, as voting time once again nears, the Board of Admissions of Electors is standing in the Porricelli?s way. The board decided not to vote in Monday?s meeting. They have rescheduled the vote for November 13- a week after the Poricelli?s would have had the opportunity to vote as Greenwich residents.
