Former city employee speaks up, encourages others

To the Editor:

As a former city employee who never spoke at public meetings, I’ve come to appreciate the opportunity to speak at the monthly Board of Aldermen meetings. I think everyone should try it. For three minutes, any resident or elector can address their elected officials about virtually any issue.

This week, I discussed my concern over the recent change in bond counsel for the City of Milford and a news story that addressed it. Perhaps I said something that was useful or interesting to someone, perhaps not. But in America, we can discourse freely to help one another make informed electoral decisions.

This week, I was called “negative” and “political” for addressing a sensitive topic, even chided that I “should know better.” What I do know is that responsibly participating in democracy is too important to stop, no matter how unpopular the position.
