State Rep. Kim Rose was unanimously endorsed to run for the 118th District by the Milford Democratic Town Committee, on May 24 at the 118th District Democratic Convention at the Milford Elks. Rose was nominated by Democratic Town Chairman Rich Smith and seconded by former Milford State Rep. Pete Smith.
Rich Smith talked about Rose being a fighter for her constituents, from stopping over development in Devon to making sure Milford has a strong voice in Hartford. In seconding Pete Smith spoke about Rose’s independence, saying, “I work at the Capital every day and I see Kim in action. She doesn't stop. Kim is Milford's independent voice in Hartford, she understands government needs to do more with less. Kim is committed to driving efficiencies into state government. When we need a strong voice, Kim is there for all of us.”
