GREENWICH, Conn. -- Happy Birthday To Greenwich’s Edward Miner "Ned" Lamont Jr.!

Lamont, who has owned a home in Greenwich, turns 60 on Friday. The businessman and politician was born Jan. 3, 1954, in Washington, D.C.

Lamont began working for the Black River Tribune, a small newspaper in Ludlow, Vt., in 1977. He founded his own cable television company, Lamont Digital Systems, now known as Campus Televideo, in 1984. It provides satellite and telecommunication services to colleges and universities.

He was elected and served as a selectman in the town of Greenwich for one term. Lamont also served for three terms on the town's Finance Board and chaired the State Investment Advisory Council.

In 2006, he defeated then-incumbent U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman for the Democratic nomination to run for the U.S. Senate. But Lieberman, running as an independent, defeated Lamont in the November election.

He is currently a faculty member and Chair of the Arts and Sciences Public Policy Committee at Central Connecticut State University, where he was named by the Board of Trustees as a Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Philosophy.
