Charles Montalbano has announced plans to seek the Democratic nomination to run for Milford City Clerk against incumbent Linda Stock in November.
“I enter this race simply because I think I would do a good job for our city and our residents,” Montalbano said. “I will look to develop an atmosphere in which our citizens are welcomed in the city clerks’ office, where each will receive the assistance they require in a timely and efficient manner. I’d also like to see a greater leveraging of technologies which might allow people to transact more of their city business from the comfort of their own homes instead of having to drive into a city office.”
Montalbano is a commissioner on Milford Redevelopment and Housing Authority and a member of the board of directors at Bridges, where he also served as a mentor with the Bridges Across Ages program.
“Charlie is an example of the kind of individual we all want to see seek public office,” Mayor Ben Blake said. “He is a small business owner, father, grandfather with a lifelong commitment to public service. He comes to this race for all the right reasons.”
Former Mayor and City Clerk Alan Jepson endorsed Montalbano’s candidacy, commenting, “Charlie has demonstrated, through the years, his devotion to helping people. I am confident he will serve our city well as city clerk and registrar of vital records.”
