With new efficiencies created, new sources of revenue bringing in additional tax dollars and with lessons learned from several major storms since he took office, Mayor Ben Blake said he is ready to start moving the city forward even more.
“I can say Milford is even better than it was two years ago,” Blake said. “Two years from now, I hope to say our community is even sturdier.”
The Democratic Town Committee approved its slate of candidates for the November elections Thursday in a City Hall ceremony highlighted by red carnations on the lapel of every candidate, and patriotic tunes sung by the Coastal Chordsmen.
Charles Montalbano accepted his party’s nomination to run for City Clerk. Montalbano said he wants to bring the same efficiencies to the city clerk’s office that Blake brought to the mayor’s office.
“I will continue to ask ‘how can we improve, how can we do the job better,” Montalbano said.
