JudgeBevTo view the latest “Candidate Profile” on Judge Beverly Streit-Kefalas in the Milford Mirror make sure to click here and read in Judge Beverly’s own words on why she is seeking re-election for the Milford-Orange Probate Court. It is a well written profile and needs to be shared. Beverly is truly one of a kind and her work in the Milford-Orange Probate Court is unparalleled.

While the center focus of the campaigns this year leans to the race for the State Senate and State Representatives etc, we have to remember that the Judge of Probate is an elected office and we need to make sure we give our support to our own Judge Beverly when casting our vote on November 4th.

Some excerpts from Judge Beverly’s candidate profile below;

As you vote on Election Day, I ask for support as your Probate Judge for the Milford-Orange Probate Court. My proven record, experience and commitment to the people I serve in both Milford and Orange can continue for all families in our communities……Community service and volunteerism is a central part of my extra-judicial life and over the years, I have been recognized by the Housatonic Council of Girl Scouts, the Milford Chamber of Commerce and the Concerned Citizens for People with Disabilities for service to our communities. Serving as a volunteer and board member of many local organizations such as Bridges, Devon Rotary, United Way and others, I am committed to ensuring that our communities have the support services that we need when we face family loss and crisis.

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.
