After a long and storied career in public service, Alan Jepson today passed away. Jepson, former Mayor of Milford and City Clerk, was a titan in the Milford Democratic Party and faithful public servant to the community of Milford, Connecticut. His presence and guidance will be greatly missed.
Coined as “Mr. Milford” Jepson served as Mayor of Milford from 1963 to 1969 and was the City Clerk for 22 years, from 1987 to 2009. He was known for surpassing party lines and worked with people from both political parties.
During his remaining days as City Clerk he was covered by the Connecticut Post in 2009. A war veteran, Jepson last October was presented a Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame induction certificate; he served in the United States Navy during World War II.
Before he retired from the City Clerk’s office, his re-election campaign was covered back in 2007.
