Bridgeport councilor seeks protective order against gadfly

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A councilor in Connecticut’s largest city is seeking protection from a man she says shows up at every meeting and starts “ranting and raving” at her.

Bridgeport Councilor the Rev. Mary McBride-Lee says in her request for a civil protective order that Cecil Young finally went too far at the May 15 meeting and she felt “harassed, threatened and bullied.” She did not specify what was said at the meeting.

Young’s focus at meetings is often his unsuccessful quest for vindication after being fired from his city job years ago.

Young tells the Connecticut Post that at the May 15 meeting he simply asked for more compassion from McBride-Lee and another councilor. He said he cannot be accused of stalking because he does not call or follow McBride-Lee.
