Speaking for the Milford Democrats

Democratic Position on Blogs

I know Joe Della Monica Jr. He and I have had countless debates regarding politics. While, of course, he is always wrong, our debates are always in good fun. I consider him a friend. When he was Chair, we worked well together and even brought the two Parties together to raise money for Toys for Tots.

As a party we do not encourage or in any way support much of what is seen on the blog posts, either here or in the newspapers - from overly zealous contributors. We respect all the candidates from the other side of the aisle. It takes commitment and sacrifice to put your names out there and put in the work required to run for office. Win or lose, the Democratic Party respects your commitment and your effort.

We can disagree, even passionately about issues, experience, vision etc - but I think both Parties are equally committed to our good city.

Rich Smith, I truely thank you for the kind words about Joe Jr. I will not say why your posting was necessary, but it does restore my respect for you personally even if we are in opposite political parties.

Mr. Goldwyn, if you would like to place your own personal campaign message, go start your own message. I am getting really tired of your 24/7 campaigning on every single article on the Patch. I wondered why the Patch was allowing this and recently became aware that your wife is a writer for Patch. That explains Patch's tolerance and nepotism! Quite frankly I am beginning to find your posts boring and out of line and and beginning to bnot want to even read the Patch anymore. Your last post has absolutely nothing to do with this letter.

JE you do have a name don't you.

JE I see the cat still has your tongue. I will comment where I see fit and if by campaigning by seeking name recognition on postings of the Democratic Town Chairman I will do so regardless of the poster who hides his identity. Commenting gives everone the opportunity to share life experiences and my almost 74 years have not been dull. I tell my stories so that others will do the same. Only Patch allows us to do this. My life has been full of many contributions to the community in which I lived as I didn't just take, but offered aid to those less fortunate residents. This is my first attempt at elective office after 50 years of helping others. RON GOLDWYN the most experienced candidate for PZB.
