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!

Andy Grossman

When he gave up a safe seat to challenge an entrenched congresswoman, some thought Murphy’s political ambitions had blinded him. After nearly 15 hours of speeches by 40 senators — punctuated by Murphy’s 2 a.m. soliloquy Thursday about a student and teacher who died in each other’s arms at Sandy Hook...

For the sake of our kids and our town, the Democratic Party urges people to vote a resounding “Yes.” At a budget hearing, a voter justified his “No” vote by pointing to a decline in his real estate values. Ironically, in most towns there is a strong correlation between the quality of the public scho...

The board of education budget was very narrowly defeated at the last referendum due to a low voter turnout. Unfortunately, this translates to a very small number of voters making decisions for the future of our school children. Keep in mind, that every referendum is costing New Milford taxpayers mor...
