“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.

If you are interested in volunteering for the James Maroney for the 119th campaign this election season make sure to check out the Milford Democrat’s volunteer sign up page here. If you would like a James Maroney lawn sign you can fill out a sign up form here.

Introducing the Sign Up Page for Lawn Signs – Election 2014

GetAttachment.aspxI’m introducing a new page on the Milford Democrats website that will allow users to sign up for lawn signs through the internet. While there is a page to sign up to volunteer for the Milford Democrats this election year (link to the volunteer sign up page here) I will be offering a page dedicated for people to sign up to receive lawn signs of the candidate(s) of their choosing.

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. If you need help you can check out the Milford Registrar of Voters website here or you can look up your district right here on the Milford Democrats site at this link.

Once you sign up for a lawn sign you will be contacted and arrangements will be made for a pickup or for someone to drop it off conveniently at your residence.

Dept of Consumer Protection – Sunglasses Alert

SunglassesImg2I was just forwarded a press release from the Department of Consumer Protection concerning a alert sent out concerning children’s sunglasses tainted with lead. It’s not political news but I wanted to share this information with the readers and let you know what this has been sent out.

The press release is quoted below

The Department of Consumer Protection is alerting parents and caregivers to a new recall of children’s sunglasses that have been deemed unsafe due to excessive levels of lead.

Consumers should immediately take these sunglasses away from children and return them to the store for a free replacement of refund.

About 215,000 pairs of the sunglasses were sold nationwide at CVS, K-mart, Rite-Aid and Walgreen’s since December 2013.

They sold for between $7 and $13.

The graph below displays the Disney “Cars” version. The graph below details all sunglasses included in this recall.
