Milford Independents met last week at Cabo, informal discussions took place and a conclusion was made to forge ahead with the implementation of an official party. Sometime in the next week a public advertisement will be placed in the newspaper, thanks to a generous donation of a few political enthusiasts who put up the money for the ad.
The ad will announce a time, date and meeting place for an assembly of all people interested in participating in, and forming an Independent Town Committee. The purpose of the gathering is to agree on a set of by-laws, party leadership, and engage in discussion in the official adoption of the templete charter provided by the CT Independent Party state central.
As it stands the independent Party has no formal charter, no town committee, and only an acting Chairman. Nominations are currently solicited for positions of leadership. However, a pre-set of rules exists, and only people from the Independence, Independent, and Milford Independent Party can vote and run for office.
Unafiliates can also vote, but only after completing a change of registration card at the receptions concierge desk. All are invited, Republicans and Democrats can Join, but according to state rules they must wait the required SOT Three month period before voting in any officiall business.
Your name must appear on the Voter Registrar list as of that date. If you changed party prior to the announced date, you must bring a confirmation of your party enrollment.
This is truly exciting news many party insiders, organizers, and friends are looking forward to the balance and insight offered by the the towns independents. Keep a watchful lookout for the ad that will appear in the Milford Mirror next week.
