Alderman Ben Blake is absolutely right when he takes Bob Joy and the Republican Aldermen to task for approving $26,500 in taxpayer dollars to a fund Garbage Museum in Stratford while refusing the funds needed to keep Milford’s library open on Saturdays. Stratford has not even agreed to fund the museum!
Joy and his fellow Republicans, the same group who voted to approve spending $700 a piece for office chairs, need to get their priorities sorted in a hurry. How can Joy and his fellow Republicans possibly justify cutting firemen, teachers and closing the library on Saturdays while at the same time funding a Garbage Museum?
How can Alderman and real estate agent Joy run for Mayor of Milford when he is obviously more concerned with museums in Stratford than with firemen and teachers in Milford?
