Imagine my delight when I received a "personal phone call" from Ben Blake, our new Mayor, and after only one request for a meeting. I was greeted with a strong handshake and big smile. I was early but immediately ushered into his office. He was charming and not overbearing or puffed up with his position.
We chatted, I had a few issues to discuss, he took notes and even made a phone call to one of the departments on my behalf. To my astonishment, he got results right away. My family and I have lived in Milford, in the same house or some 56+ years.
For a while now, with sadness, I have been thinking about pulling up roots and leaving Milford, but now I am digging in and seeing it through. I know there is someone looking after us, leading with a strong hand. He is also really interested in what I am feeling and experiencing.
Bravo Mr. Mayor welcome, you are a ray of sunshine, keep on keeping on. It was a pleasure meeting you, I have gained back my faith.
