Democrat Donkey in Red and Blue

Message from the Chairman

New Milford Democrats

It's July and the New Milford Democrats are really kicking into high gear.

On June 28, we sponsored -- with the help of O'Connor's Pub -- a fund-raiser for the Community Fuel Bank where we raised $700, tasted some great craft beers and had a whole lot of fun.

We have a fundraising picnic -- for us -- set for Sunday, Aug. 10 at the Harrybrooke Park pavilion. Details to follow, but rest assured it will be a great deal and fun for the entire family. We'll have games for kids, plenty of food, and great company -- at a very reasonable price.

We are continuing to stay front and center on the issues. The Executive Committee, backed by a majority of the DTC's members, penned a letter to the Spectrum condemning the Board of Education for voting to close the Pettibone School. (http://tinyurl.com/jwa54ft). Five of the six Republican members backed the move and for GOP Town Council members spoke in favor of the closing at a recent public hearing We are actively supporting a petition drive to reverse the move.

The News-Times carried a story on June 21 about our continued support for the Loaves & Fishes Hospitality House even in the face of the Zoning Commission's rejection of its application to convert the Straub facility on Bridge St. We thank Commission member Sharon Ward for her vote in support of the application and hope Lisa Martin can find another solution downtown.

Next comes the Village Fair Days and, boy, do we have a lot planned for that weekend! Please come by our booth to see all the surprises we have in store or drop by our next meeting on July 21 at the Railroad Station on Railroad Street at 7pm.
