Featured Letter to the Editor: Maroney Praises Grants for Downtown Milford

JamesMaroneyNot lacking a spring in his step, former State Representative James Maroney (D-119th) has put out a letter to the editor that was recently published at the Milford Mirror praising Mayor Ben Blake, Governor Dan Malloy and the Milford state delegation for securing a $150,000 grant for the downtown Milford area.

James knows that investing and planning for a vibrant downtown Milford will greatly benefit the community as a whole. Downtown is home not only to numerous amounts of small businesses but also to Milford’s Legacy Arboretum, City Hall and others. James, when serving as a State Representative, helped secure a $300,000 grant to pay for the significant and historic “Founders’ Walk” memorial in downtown Milford.

With our local elected officials like Mayor Blake, fellow neighbors, advocates and the Founders’ Walk Committee, he is working towards building a stronger downtown Milford and I thank him for that.

An excerpt from the letter;

While we have a beautiful 17 miles of shoreline, downtown is the heart of our community. The increased parking in a thoughtful way, as well as projects like Founders’ Walk, the beautification of the railroad trestle, and the MilfordViews project will ensure that our downtown is enjoyed by our community and visitors for years to come.

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!

“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.
