Democrat Donkey in Red and Blue

Message from the Chairman

Dear Voters,

August might be a month of rest for our lawmakers but the hard-working New Milford Democratic Town Committee (DTC) rarely takes time out from working for the people of New Milford and the party. Of course, it will be tough to top July's efforts but we're confident of success.

On Aug. 10, we will hold a fund-raising picnic at Harrybrooke Park from noon to 5 p.m. We'll have lots of great food and games – many for kids – for the bargain price of $10 an adult and $25 per family. Don't bring anything but your appetite and capacity for fun. Rain or shine, we'll be in the Conn
Pavilion. Rep. Elizabeth Esty is expected to drop by (no promises, schedules change on a dime). Our next State Representative, Gale Alexander, will be there to have a little fun and is always available to listen to your concerns. Please give us an RSVP ring at (860) 355-3268 with the number in your party. We want to have plenty of food on hand, but don't want to have unneccesary waste either.

At our Aug. 18 meeting, the DTC will present the first version of our platform that will detail the party's positions on a number of vital local issues. Please come out and see what your Democratic Party stands for. We will continue to flush out policy details as we approach the 2015 municipal elections so that we can provide New Milford voters with a clear choice next year and explain why the Democrats are a superior alternative to the current administration.

We're sorry to see July go as we enjoyed a great month. We had a spectacular Village Fair Days. Our booth was a beehive of activity, what with the 14 prizes we gave away (hourly), Saturday's Scavenger Hunt and the 253 names Ann Mueller gathered in support of efforts to keep Pettibone School open.You might have seen the July 25 issue of the New Milford Spectrum where on the top of page 1 stood our own DTC member Tom O'Brien and his son, Jake, celebrating their group's 335-mile ride bicycle tour to promote a Western New England Greenway. Nobody has done more for bicyclists in New Milford - maybe the region – than Tom.

Turn to page S7 and there is yours truly presenting a check for the Community Fuel Bank to town officials Peg Molina and Caroline Haglund from our June 28 fund-raiser at O'Connor's Pub. Including the cash we raised at the Village Fair Days, Democrats helped put more than $800 into the Fuel Bank's coffers.

We hope you will come out and support our local candidates this year, Gale Alexander for State Representative and Bill Riiska for State Senate. Contact us here for details on how to volunteer for the campaigns and bring the two-party system back to New Milford.

We'll to see you Aug. 10!!!

It was a wonderful day for the Democratic Picnic at Harrybrooke Park on August 10th.
