Message from the Chairman
The New Milford Democratic Town Committee made only one promise upon taking office a year ago: to run a viable and credible mayoral candidate in this year’s election.
Now we have fulfilled that promise. David Gronbach is the real deal: an articulate, bright, hard-working local attorney, father of three, and -- along with wife Vanessa -- the owner of the Book Nook on Bank St. In fact, the Gronbachs showed their commitment to downtown New Milford by buying the book store when it looked like it might close. They have also been active in the PTO: Vanessa led a petition drive to try and keep the Pettibone School open.
You’ll read and hear more about David in the coming weeks and months. For now, please join us on March 29, from 1-3 p.m. at the American Kitchen at 132 Danbury Road (the site of the old Jefferson Pine store next to Royal Buffet) for David’s official announcement.
Come and say hello to David and Vanessa, enjoy some good food and listen to David lay out some of the themes of his campaign.
Here’s the link to the News-Times story if you missed it. http://www.newstimes.com/local/article/Democrat-David-Gronbach-to-run-for-New-Milford-6139671.php.
Among other issues, David is going to emphasize the need to improve our schools after years of neglect such that New Milford now shamefully ranks near the bottom in Connecticut in spending on a per capita basis. David also has a different vision on how to attract well-paying jobs to town as opposed to the Scroogeish minimum-wage gigs offered by the chain stores that now populate Route 7. He knows this sort of development brings in few tax dollars compared with the light industry that we so badly need.
Also in the coming weeks, the DTC will be reaching out to fill the various other offices up for election this year, including Town Council, Board of Education and Zoning Commission. If you have any interest in serving on these or other town boards – elected or appointed – please contact us.
Let’s all work to make New Milford a two-party town again!
