Our local DTC put on the second annual Milford Democratic Party Awards Dinner last night at the Costa Azzurra restaurant overlooking Long Island Sound.
Attorney General Dick Blumenthal was the "Democrat of the Year" recipient, shown here after his introduction by Milford DTC chairman Rich Smith.
Justin Rosen (R), recipient of the "Young Democrat" award, is shown here with Rep. Jason Bartlett and Majority Leader Denise Merrill.
State Comptroller Nancy Wyman is shown presenting the "Outstanding Community Service" award to Mary Ann Wasil Nilan, founder of the "Get In Touch Foundation".
Nancy also helped in presenting the "Lifetime Achievement" award to former DTC chair Bob Hardiman.
Winner of the "Gaudiest Tie" award goes to DTC member and local troublemaker Mike Brown.
Brown revealed the concept for the tie was inspired by this paper gift bag. Despite winning the award, Brown was later sentenced to life without parole in fashion prison.
(I'm just kidding, I know it's supposed to be some kind of fancy-schmancy designer tie...)
