Letter to the Editor: Kim Rose Deserves Another Term

KimRose2I’ll be sharing a letter to the editor penned by Suzanne Cahill of Milford Living Magazine that was published earlier this morning in theMilford Patch. I’ve already shared a nicely done letter to the editor by Scott Schulte in my September 18th post, which supported State Representative James Maroney’s re-election campaign in the 119th, but today we will be focusing on Kim Rose and her campaign in the 118th.

In the letter to the editor Ms. Cahill expressed her support for Kim Rose and urged her fellow neighbors in the 118th to cast their vote for Kim this coming Election Day. Cahill focused on Rose’s stance and efforts on the economic front, citing her support for legislation that strengthens the partnership between community colleges and technical schools. This leads to “greater manufacturing collaboration, new jobs and an educated workforce”, said Cahill.

She continued to praise Rose’s advocacy for small businesses on the local level and is “grateful of her representation and assistance in Hartford”. Rose, Cahill concluded, is “just the type of leader to meet today’s challenges”.

You can view the letter to the editor in its entirety here on the Milford Patch.

Kim Rose currently serves as State Representative of the 118th House District in Milford, Connecticut  She is running for re-election and her name will be on the ballot on November 4th. To keep up to date with all the news from her campaign check out her “Friends of Kim Rose” Facebook page.

Thank you Suzanne for taking the time to send out this letter and keep up the great work over at Milford Living Magazine!

A Big Thank You to Our Volunteers

The Milford Democrats would like to extend their sincerest thanks to all the volunteers who came out to walk door to door with the candidates on October 5th last Sunday. People came as early as 10am to Headquarters to knock on doors and distribute campaign literature across several different neighborhoods around Milford. State Senator Gayle Slossberg, State Representatives Kim Rose, James Maroney, Paul Davis and Judge of Probate Beverly Streit-Kefalas all werre in attendance to meet and greet the volunteers as they went out the door to walk neighborhoods.

We also had a solid turnout from students who came by to Headquarters, sparing their Sunday evening helping out with the campaign. It is great to see how interested they are in the campaigns and we greatly value their participation! We know we will be seeing them again throughout the remainder of the election year.

A big thanks to State Representative’s James Maroney’s father who after everyone came back from their canvassing shifts hosted a cookout for the volunteers and candidates, serving delicious hot dogs and hamburgers to everyone. For the first campaign event of October, it was a great kick-off for the last weeks of campaigning here in Milford. Getting out the vote for our candidates will be very important and it will require a lot of work going forward but it can be accomplished.

We hope to see everyone soon and thanks again to everyone who came out to support their candidates.

“Maroney is a man of integrity, loyalty and unmeasured work ethic” – Letter to the Editor

The Milford Democrats are very proud and happy to share this letter to the editor penned by Scott Schulte in the Connecticut Post.

In the letter Schulte describes Maroney as a man of “integrity, loyalty and unmeasured work ethic”. He shared that he supported Maroney initially when he ran for the Milford Board of Education in the 1st District and was a supporter for his State House run in 2012. Expressing hope that the people of 119th will re-elect Maroney, Schulte closed by “guaranteeing” Maroney will serve the 119th in the best of his ability.

We can not agree more with what Mr. Schulte shared in this letter. James Maroney is a tireless worker on behalf of the constituents of the 119th. Not only his he a family man but also operates and runs his own small business. His work ethic is unparalleled and he is the right choice to represent the 119th.

Follow the link here to be re-directed to the lawn sign page. There you will be given options of the candidate of your choosing. Keep in mind of your voting district however.
