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

5 Reasons to vote for Hillary Clinton that aren't "because she's a woman" and "because she's not Donald Trump". 1. She has the most legislative experience and knows the workings of Congress. 2. She has the foreign policy experience necessary having served recently as Secretary of State during the Obama administration. 3. She knows the demands of the job, having seen them first hand when her husband was in office. She knows what she's getting into. 4. She was the first to lead the movement for major health care reform during the Bill Clinton administration. 5. According to independent fact checking organizations, despite the accusations of political hacks, she is the most accurate and honest candidate running.
“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.
Democrats worry that third-party candidate could cost Clinton the election.
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...

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

Ending one of the longest, costliest and most bitterly partisan congressional investigations in history, the Select Committee on Benghazi issued its report.
Democrats decided to end their day-long sit-in protest on the House floor over gun control Thursday.
The case challenged a part of the admission program at the University of Texas at Austin that takes race and ethnicity into account.
Another reminder today why the Supreme Court is so important and why we must elect a Democrat to the White House. (Though we did have some uncharacteristic help from Justice Kennedy on this one.) Not quotas but consideration. Minority students, many of whom can't afford good private schools and must attend terrible public school systems, need a helping hand to catch up.
House Republicans sought to end an extraordinary day of drama and a 16-hour sit-in by Democrats in the early hours of Thursday morning by adjourning for a recess that will last through July 5.
"No bill, no break!"
Why we're sitting in
Georgia Rep. John Lewis is leading a sit-in on the House floor Wednesday to push Republicans to address gun violence in the legislative chamber. Lewis wrote a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan demanding that he keep the House in session through its planned recess to debate and vote on gun control le...
It's a tough conversation, but you can do it.
