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

For Sanders supporters who refuse to vote for Clinton. Here is what happens if Trump wins. And the ONLY way he wins is if Bernie Bros. don't vote. I hope you don't mind lots of coal. Greenhouse gases? A hoax right? If Trump wins, it's YOUR fault. And I voted for Sanders.
Congratulations to Mary Jane Lundgren, our town council woman who the Democrats nominated to run for State Rep in New Milford this year An absolutely dedicated public servant who also sits on the Substance Abuse Council, Council on Aging and Housing Partnership. As vice chair of the Council, she was instrumental in passing a budget that called for a 0.6% tax DECREASE before the Republicans on the Board of Finance added a completely unnecessary $400,000. So much for "tax-and-spend" Democrats.
