West Haven Veterans Advisory Committee signed into law and members ready to work



By Mark Zaretsky

Members of the new Local Veterans Advisory Committee got together for the first time Monday to watch Mayor Ed O’Brien sign an ordinance creating the new body, with West Haven one of the first municipalities in Connecticut to form a committee that is now required by the state.
The signing took place at the West Haven Veterans Museum & Learning Center, 30 Hood Terrace, opposite the railroad station.
City Clerk Deborah Collins then immediately administered the oath of office to the five committee members and two alternates, all who are veterans and members of local or state veterans’ organizations.

The committee will have its first official meeting as early as next week, O’Brien said.
The members are West Haven Veterans Council President David Ricci, who served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War; Veterans Council Vice President Gordon Bergman, who served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War and is commander of the West Haven’s Disabled American Veterans chapter; West Haven Vietnam Veterans member and Army veteran Steven Carney, who is treasurer of the Veterans Council; Councilman Sean P. Ronan, D-9; and Robert Rousseau.
