Here Comes the Governor!!!!!!!

The Milford Democratic Party will hold it's Municipal Convention on Wednesday July 20th at City Hall (West River Street) to endorse candidates for Mayor, City Clerk, Board of Education, Board of Aldermen, and Planning and Zoning Board, as well as the dreaded Constables.

On Friday July 22nd at 6:30 pm we will have a grand fundraiser for Mayoral candidate Ben Blake ... with a Special Guest.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy, who I acknowledge you might be mad at this week, is coming to Milford to support the Democratic Party's candidate for Mayor.  

Now, I recognize that everyone is a little testy lately so let me remind you that the "Suggested Donation" is de  rigueur on political invitations. You pay what you feel is appropriate and according to your budget. It is expected that contributions will at least be reasonable, not in coin form, and at least enough to cover your food and drink consumption!

Which is not to say that you shouldn't dig deep. After all, we need to run a campaign here.

For security reasons, I have cunningly blocked out the address of the event, but let me at least reveal to you that there is a view of water.

So, when we say Clams (edible mollusks), we also mean Clams (many dollar$). *

* The slang word "Clam" meaning money most likely comes from Native Americans on the coastline who strung clamshells as necklaces and used them for trade.
