Citizens for Milford extends sincere gratitude to all the candidates who participated in our Candidates Forum. We also thank everyone who took the time to attend, particularly those residents who asked questions. We invite you to take the time to watch the video and learn more about where each of the candidates stands on issues facing our institutions and community.And most importantly, please remember to VOTE on Tuesday, April 3!
THANK YOU Milford TV for recording and publishing!
If you are not sure about your polling location,click hereto enter your street address and determine your polling place.
The ballot is EASY to complete–simply fill in the correct oval at the bottom of the ballot to specify your vote and you are done!
We have heard from a few absentee voters that they were confused about the line of O’s in the middle of the ballot. In the town bylaws, the letter O indicates an “excluded or prohibited use.” These O’s are NOT ovals to be filled in. Rather, they indicate that recreational marijuana establishments are prohibited in all zones (RA, RB, RC, RD, OR, BP, CA, CB, CC, IA, IB, IC). The one exception is that Milford’s two existing medical marijuana businesses are exempted. That exemption is detailed in the footnote for the IB zone. You can read all the details on page 35 of Milford’s Zoning Bylaws.
IMPORTANT! Please remember this question has no impact on medical marijuana businesses. A medical marijuana dispensary CAN open in Milford no matter how we vote Tuesday. Medical marijuana is governed by a separate law passed in 2012.
