In case you missed that : The 96th Congressional District seat is open for the first time in about 15 years. Looking at the borders one must think about gerrymandering. The repercussions of that artificially created electoral district were heard in a yesterday's televised debate by between the three contenders vying to replace 96th State General Assembly District Rep. Cam Staples,who’s stepping down at the end of this term. Thursday marked the second debate between East Rock Alderman Roland Lemar, East Rock psychologist Debra Hauser and Hamden historian John Morrison, who entered the race last week.

8:41: Where is your favorite place in Fair Haven?
Lemar: Chatham square park, Grand Apizza. Grand Avenue is one of the most vibrant places in New Haven.
Morrison: I have to admit I don’t go there that often, but Grand Avenue is like Whitney Avenue, because of the small shops. We need to preserve that.
Hauser: Front Street. I loved it there. I really enjoyed going to the low-income housing there, that’s been refurbished. I hear very different things from the people there. People there are concerned about the murders in New Haven.
