On Tuesday May 24th, 2016 at Milford City Hall State Representative Kim Rose (118th) was endorsed as the Democratic Candidate once again in the 118th House District. Milford Democratic Registrar of Voters Kerri Rowland was also endorsed to run this November.
From a press release on Rep. Rose’s endorsement:
On Tuesday evening Democratic Delegates gathered to choose their nominee for State Representative.
Milford Alderman Bryan Anderson nominated Kim Rose and Dotti Bateman, president of Caswell Cove condo assoc., seconded the motion. Following the motions, Rose was endorsed unanimously.
“Kim is a dedicated public servant and a great advocate for Milford in State Government,” Anderson said in a statement. “She is someone who truly loves her hometown and is dedicated to her work.”
Rose, a State Representative since 2011, is a member of the General Assembly’s Joint Committees for Veterans Affairs, and Children, and Vice Chair of the Committee on Housing. She is the Assistant Majority Whip of the House. She is being nominated to serve her fourth term.
“I am honored to accept this nomination. It is my pleasure to serve my constituents and I look forward to the challenges ahead. Whether it’s fighting to stop a recycling facility from opening to our issues with affordable housing applications, I have always stood up and fought for our residents. My constituents know that I am always there for them,” said Rose in a statement.
Prior to serving in the General Assembly, Kim Rose served as Vice Chair of the Milford Planning and Zoning Board, and co-founded the Downtown Milford Business Association.
Her daughter Crystal is a Physician’s Assistant at Manchester Hospital, and her son Casey was a Sergeant in the Connecticut National Guard and a veteran of the War in Afghanistan.
Kim is now the proud grandmother of 9-month-old Cora Lee.
Congratulations to both Kim and Kerri!
