The Milford Independent Party held its convention to nominate candidates and backed incumbent State Rep. Kim Rose, a Democrat, to run for the 118th District.
“I am grateful and humbled by their vote and endorsement last night,” Rose said in a press release. “I have always maintained that I represent all people regardless of their party affiliation. In my freshman year, I broke with my party and voted against one of Gov. Malloy’s largest tax increasing budgets. This past session I supported the Republican budget that the governor vetoed and led us to a bi-partisan solution.
