JOIN US for Beautification Day on Saturday, April 23

All Milford Residents and Groups Invited to Volunteer
to Help Clean Our Community

Citizens for Milford, in partnership with Friends of the Milford Upper Charles Trail, is organizing the Seventh Annual Milford Beautification Day. Beautification Day is Milford’s annual clean-up event, which enables area residents, organizations, and businesses to work together to beautify our community by picking up trash around town.

Milford Beautification Day will be held Saturday, April 23 (rain or shine) from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. All interested citizens are invited to meet with organizers anytime between those hours in the municipal parking lot across from Sacred Heart Church (5 East Main Street) to get supplies, instructions, and assignments.

Families, community groups, churches, local businesses, and teenagers who need to perform service hours are all invited to participate. Younger children are encouraged to attend as long as they are accompanied by a supervising adult.

Beautification Day provides a wonderful opportunity for residents to come together and demonstrate pride in our community by cleaning the parks and streets of Milford. We invite everyone to come to help, even for just an hour or two. –Beautification Day Chairperson Amie Sanborn

Trash bags, gloves, safety vests, and water will be provided to all clean-up volunteers. Funds to purchase these items are being donated by the Friends of the Milford Upper Charles Trail, Milford Highway Department, and Amazon.

In conjunction with the efforts being organized for Beautification Day, the Milford Highway Department has arranged for volunteers from the Norfolk County Sheriff’s office to initiate the Beautification Day work by conducting a clean-up of main streets around town on April 21 and 22.

The two event sponsors are sincerely grateful for the assistance and support provided by the Milford Highway Department, Norfolk County Sheriff’s office, and State Representative Brian Murray. Representative Murray secured a $1,000 donation from Amazon for supplies.

THANK YOU Milford Candidates

Citizens for Milford would like to thank all the candidates who participated in the CANDIDATE FORUM series this week! We truly appreciate the time you took to meet voters and share your experience and vision for our community. Also, thank you voters who attended and watched the live broadcasts. Many great questions were posed to the candidates. Our only regret was that we were unable to have everyone’s questions answered.  If we missed your question, please reach out to the candidates directly. You can find their email addresses and Facebook pages on our website here.
AND thank you to Milford TVfor partnering with us to provide the live broadcasts and videos of both forums.
FOR MORE INFORMATION on the candidates running in contested races, visit this page on our website.

The videos of both forums are below:

  •  First is the video of the forum featuring the candidates for Parks Commission and Planning Board.
  • Following is the video of the second forum, which features two of the four candidates running for School Committee. We had originally announced that all four of the School Committee candidates would be participating. However, RJ Sheedy withdrew from the forum, and John Erickson was diagnosed with Covid two days prior and was in quarantine on the night of the forum. So the School Committee forum included candidates Dr. Robyn Bratica and Mr. Derrick Sobers.

All Milford Voters Invited to Attend Candidate Forums on March 22 and 23 in Upper Town Hall

Come at 6:30 p.m. to meet the candidates! Both forums will start at 7:00 p.m.

Citizens for Milford, in partnership with Milford TV, invites all Milford voters to attend two Candidate Forums featuring the candidates in the three contested races in Milford’s upcoming town election.

The first forum will be held Tuesday, March 22 at 7:00 p.m. and will feature the candidates running for Planning Board and Parks Commission. The second forum will be held Wednesday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m. and will feature the candidates running for School Committee. Both forums will take place in Upper Town Hall. The candidates have been invited to meet voters beginning at 6:30 p.m. before each forum begins. These events are free and open to the public.

Citizens for Milford members José Costa and Geri Eddins will moderate the forums. Each forum will begin with a two-minute opening statement from each of the candidates. A highlight of each forum will be the exchange of challenge questions between the opponents. Following the challenge questions, the moderators will invite audience members to pose questions to the candidates.

Milford voters who are unable to attend the forums are encouraged to send their questions for the candidates in advance by email ( or by Facebook messenger (@CitizensforMilford). In addition, Citizens for Milford will accept questions during each live broadcast by email (, Facebook messenger (@CitizensforMilford), and by phone. The phone number will be displayed on the TV screen during each broadcast. The moderators will make every effort to ensure as many voter questions as possible are posed to the candidates.

Milford TV will broadcast both forums live on the public channel (Comcast 8 | Verizon 38), Verizon channel HD 2140,, and the Milford TV app. In addition, Milford TV will record the forums for on-demand viewing and will rebroadcast them in the days leading up to the election on April 5. Citizens for Milford will also provide links to each video on its website and Facebook page as soon as they are available.
