Milford Democratic Alderman from the 4th district Kerri Rowland announced her intention to become the next mayor of our small shoreline city.
Kerri spoke to a crowd of well over 100 people, which is significant when you realize it was only 6PM on a fine May evening. Representatives from local media including Cablevision 12 was on hand to cover the event, along with yours truly, of course; video will be online tomorrow (Friday).
Milford Democratic Chairman Rich Smith introduced the various dignitaries on hand for the announcement, including State Senator Gayle Slossberg, State Rep. Richard Roy, and Milford's venerable Town Clerk and former Mayor Alan Jepson.
Kerri took to the steps of City Hall and spoke about being born and raised in Milford and her love for the city. She briefly touched upon the issues that face Milford, such as the tax revaluation and the condition of our schools' infrastructure. Then she described her optimism for the future and her committment to making Milford a better place.
