MILFORD'S SMALL TOWN GOVERNMENT

Government Accountability and Transparency:


  • We  regular  citizens usually  see very little of what is done in our  name.    
  • It is not hidden,  just  not Intuitively obvious to most  people.    
  • All Selectmen’s meetings are available on  the Official Milford Website.    
  • Folks can find essential details of the lengthy procedures, presently available.
  • SELECTMEN are charged with being good fiscal stewards  of public funds and, they have by most measures,  accomplished that tasking.   
  • CHALLENGE - We regular, busy Citizens need to be offered  short  ‘classes’  on how to best use the tools being offered to us &  be able to question the Board of Selectmen.  Perhaps after the attendees have commented, phone-in questions or comments might be available for a brief period...
  • Infrequent 5th Monday meetings might be a good time for CITIZENS to  ‘CALL IN,’  after physically present Citizens have spoken DURING THE PUBLIC COMMENT PORTION OF DISCUSSIONS.
  • We must CONTINUE to account for the funds we entrust to people hired to spend public monies wisely,  in a way which more citizens can grasp easily.
  • We, the Citizenry,  depend upon the true measure of government's benevolence.    We can trust Town Government;  but,  we  must still  preform our due  diligence,  and  volunteer to confirm data provided.


 If YOU would,  please consider ELECTING ME  TO BE YOUR SELECTMAN; MY 1st  task will be safeguarding our Taxpayer’s  funds.   By  trying to make the information easier to understand ,  using competitive spreadsheets, and parallel reporting systems for each Warrant Article or proposal  -  ‘solicitation,’  hopefully more voters will get involved.

The actions of Molford's Town Government are open to engaged citizens who care to participate.

CUSTOMER PARKING for BUSINESS 'on the OVAL.'

DO NOT YET need a PARKING GARAGE. AFTER SCHOOL - WHY NOT USE THE SCHOOLS’ EMPTY PARKING LOTS?

Milford’s merchants are welcomed to provide a FREE SHUTTLE (at their shared expense), to ferry customers to their businesses and,  later,  back to their cars.    The merchants around the Oval might benefit by making parking in parts their lots available for the increased visibility they would gain.    


During special events this  ‘Public Service’ might prove to be quite profitable for our local businesses and the taxpayers would NOT have another tax bill to pay.


ELECT ME to LISTEN to YOU,  INNOVATE  & use great  ideas from other places.

VOLUNTEERISM - MILFORD’S HIDDEN ADVANTAGE

  Please call me  and  discuss anything of direct importance to Milford,  7 a.m. - 10 p.m.   Any hour for emergency situations  or matters of dire importance.  Would be happy to deliver campaign signs and materials and discuss how you might volunteer.


VOTE!  10  March 2020,  6  a.m.  -  8  p.m.,  at Milford Middle School,  33  Osgood Road.
