NORWALK, Conn. – Investors in Mayor Richard Moccia’s re-election campaign include at least four people who appear to have a connection to the Lowe’s planned for Connecticut Avenue.
A total of $4,000 was donated to the mayor’s campaign on Oct. 20 by four people named Hakimi, three of them from the Great Neck and Kings Point area on Long Island who have the same last name as Lyda Hakimi, president, and Todd Hakimi, vice president, of Hall Investments of Darien. Hall Investments lists 100 Connecticut Ave. as one of the properties that it is managing. The Zoning Commission in February approved an application to build a Lowe’s on that site.
An Internet search lists donors Todd, Yasmin, Lyda and Neal Hakimi as being related. Neal is listed as a Norwalk Hospital physician, Lyda as a real estate manager with Hall Investments and connections with 100 Norwwalk LLC, Todd as a real estate investor.
