THE NEWS

  • Ward 1 Alderman Sarah Eidelson ’12 kicked off her re-election campaign on Saturday with an open house gathering at her High Street apartment designed to reignite the energy that propelled her to victory in 2011. Over coffee and fresh-baked cookies, nearly 40 supporters crowded into the candidate’s third-floor apartment to share their reasons for backing the incumbent in a Nov. 5 general election. Before her most ardent supporters praised her achievements on the Board of Aldermen and commended her vision for New Haven, Eidelson addressed the crowd, detailing the city’s principal problems and the work that faces the Ward 1 representative.
  • A concert featuring actress Cynthia Nixon, a speech on Yale as the “Gay Ivy” and a party at Partners Cafe all took place this weekend as part of the second LGBT Alumni Reunion. Over 250 alumni, students and their guests attended the events organized from Thursday to Sunday by Yale GALA — the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Alumni Association — in conjunction with the Association of Yale Alumni. While the reunion was originally set to take place in February but canceled at the last minute due to a massive blizzard, all the original honorees and speakers were able to attend the rescheduled event, said reunion co-chair Gabriel Seidman ’11.
  • The Yale Police Department announced earlier this month that its annual police academy program will officially kickoff on Oct. 12. The Yale Citizen’s Police Academy, which is now in its seventh year, will run every Tuesday evening for six consecutive weeks at the YPD’s 101 Ashmun St. headquarters. As an extension of the YPD’s community-oriented policing strategy, the program is designed to offer members of the Yale and New Haven community insight into the department’s operations, history and responsibilities.
