Milford Election Guide

Here's a look at the candidates you have to choose from on Tuesday, November 6th.

14th State Senatorial District

Gayle Slossberg (D): Incumbent Gayle Slossberg has held her office since 2005, representing Orange, Milford and West Haven. Earlier this year she was a key vote in abolishing the death penalty.

Michael DeGrego (R): A newcomer to the political scene, Michael DeGrego received the backing of Republicans last month. “These are the folks looking for jobs, running out of unemployment because Connecticut tweaked the numbers to make it look better than it is,” he said in an announcement.

118th General Assembly District

Kim Rose (D): Incumbent Kim Rose seeks another term representing Milford. “Each day and each decision I make I think about the residents of Milford, our friends, our neighbors, our community and how we can make our lives better,” she said after receiving her party’s nomination.

Michael Casey (R): When Michael Casey received the party’s nomination, he said that the economy is the biggest issue in Connecticut. “I think the people of Connecticut have to expect more from the State government.  We should expect common sense policies that help to unleash the economic engine of this state,” Casey said.

119th General Assembly District

James Maroney (D): James Maroney won the backing of the Democratic Party in May to seek the seat of outgoing state Rep. Richard Ro. “The reason I am running is simple, my desire to help people. It’s the reason I left my job on Wall St 13 years ago to start my small business,” he said in a statement following the nomination.

Pam Staneski (R): The former Milford Board of Education and alderman isbacked by the Republican Party to take the district representing parts of Orange and Milford. “Hartford’s policies have been driving businesses out of the state, costing many people their jobs and their hope,” she said in a statement.

U.S. Senate

Chris Murphy (D): The Democratic congressman is polling ahead of his closest party rival by a 50-20 margin as he tries to win outgoing Sen. Joe Lieberman’s seat.

Linda McMahon (R): The former WWE executive tried – and failed – in her run for Senate two years ago. This year, she was the Republican favorite after winning the party convention. Her campaign headquarters is here in North Haven.

Third Congressional District

U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D): Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro has been in Congress. She’s hoping to add another two to that tally this November. She was recently in Orange to speak at a conference about food, where she called malnutrition and obesity a "double-edged sword.”

Wayne Winsley (R): The Naugatuck resident faces an uphill challenge against long-time incumbent U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro. Still, Winsley is optimistic and thinks it’s time for a change in the third district

MUST read: "Support for Kill List and NDAA make Obama and Romney Unfit for Office" http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/reawakening-liberty/2012/nov/2/support-kill-list-and-ndaa-make-obama-and-romney-u/ Make a special note to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party Presidential candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. It is a violation of the 1st Amendament rights of third party candidates, and a violation of the free speech rights of every American, for their voices to be silenced. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1
