Message from the Chairman

This is a great time to be a Democrat in New Milford.

In the past, we have largely been shut out of running the important boards and commissions that provide the backbone for keeping the town moving. These people – essential volunteers all – set or recommend policies that support our highly prized quality of life in New Milford.

Republicans – and their Unaffiliated friends – have dominated most of these boards for years. Now we can put our stamp on daily life in town.

You've undoubtedly read about how the Republican-led Sewer Commission sat by while a huge debt was piling up. You can help set policy to prevent that from happening again: There's an opening on the Commission.

You can help decide if the town is over or under-assessing property. There's an opening on the Board of Assessment Appeals (and it carries a small stipend.)

There are a number of other vacancies where you can help set policy for running New Milford. Please, if you are a Democrat, contact the Democratic Town Committee through this site; Unaffiliated voters, call or e-mail the mayor's office through newmilford.org


Cheers!

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, essentially sanctioning a foreign power’s cyberspying.

Donald Trump is officially a traitor.

Democrats worry that third-party candidate could cost Clinton the election.

No Ralph Nader 2000, no Iraqi war. And to equate Hillary Clinton with the terrifying menace of Donald Trump is lunacy. #Imwithher

Like you, my children also attended Tia’s Daycare and I spoke to the owner about the financial issues that required her to close. The owner has been allowing the Children’s Center to offer its employees the town’s health insurance, and the town has been paying 30 percent of the premiums. There has t...

New Milford Democrats shared Scott Chamberlain, New Milford Town Council's post — at Youngs Field.


Young's Field Riverwalk and Greenway This long-awaited project is set to begin this fall. With help from a $180,000 General Electric/Housatonic River Natural Resources Restoration Settlement Fund, some improvements include a passive recreational trail at Young's Field to Patriot's Way, restoration of the river bank, removal of damaged trees, replanting of new native species, a fishing pier, and picnic tables and benches. However, the funding only allows for a crushed stone trail. The New Milford River Trail Association would like to raise $15,000 by September 30, 2016 to create a permeable asphalt surface that would be more bike, wheelchair and stroller-friendly. Thanks to our generous supporters we are able to do a $5000 matching grant. Your donation through our website at nmbikewalk.org can help with raising the additional funds needed to make this permeable surface happen!

Great idea. Please support/contribute/share:

Mr. Trump’s advisers have told national Republican officials that they are preparing to make an announcement with Mr. Pence, the Indiana governor.
