He’ll be speaking and answering questions from  7 to 8 p.m. that Wednesday in the Community Room at Darien Library.

Topics include:

  • Fare hikes on our trains and buses
  • Cuts in train service on the New Canaan, Danbury, Waterbury and Shore Line East lines
  • A freeze on $4.3 billion in transportation projects

“How did this happen? Who will be affected? What can be done to stop these draconian cuts?” according to an announcement of the event. “Cameron explores the opnions in an engaging, thought‐provoking one‐hour talk.”

A former NBC News anchor, Cameron is recipient of the George Foster Peabody Award. A Connecticut resident for over 25 years, he served on the Metro-North Commuter Council and authors a column that runs in Darienite.com (as “Cameron on Transportation“) and elsewhere.
