I am disturbed that my tax dollars that I pay to the Town of Westport and to the State of Connecticut paid for overtime for our local and state police to provide security and traffic control for Barack Obama's fundraising party.

In all fairness, the bill should be sent to the Democratic National Committee. Even better, send the bill to Harvey Weinstein, who hosted the party. Why should the taxpayers pay for a private party?

The town complains of money shortages yet lets itself be bullied into paying for something that has nothing to do with the Town of Westport.

Our first selectman should demand that the Town of Westport be reimbursed.
