Tom O'Brien Announces Candidacy for New Milford Mayor
New Milford, CT: On Sunday, June 9th, Tom O’Brien formally announced his candidacy for Mayor of New Milford. He was introduced by Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz, and Democratic Town Committee Chair Mary Jane Lundgren at a fundraiser hosted at her home.
A crowd composed of friends, family, and community members joined Tom at his kickoff event. In his announcement, Tom spoke about his path to New Milford over 20 years ago, his background as a carpenter and journalist, and his focus on improving the quality of life for all New Milford residents.
“When I was working construction, if you were hired to hang 30 sheets of drywall and you didn’t get it done, you were out of a job. We hired the Mayor to fix the roads, strengthen our schools, and improve our economy and he hasn’t gotten it done, so it’s time New Milford elected someone who will.”
