Mayor of Milton Contest Begins

I try not to work weekends but Sunday evening I spent some time at the first meeting of the candidates in the Mayor of Milton contest.

They are an interesting group.

The nomimation campaign for Mayor ended recently.

The candidates include: Bob Karp, Jim Comer, Philip Driscoll, Janice Fahy, Deborah Felton, Jayne Goode and Mike Lynch.

So Brian Kelley who is running the event gathered a few of the candidates for a quick meeting. Comer, Driscoll and Goode were on hand. Photos of those candidates will soon appear in the Milton Times.

Voting is now underway. The candidate who raises the most money will be declared the Mayor of Milton.

The rules appear to be $1 a vote.

Tickets for the 350th Concert will count toward the votes.

Meanwhile Kelley purchased four large ballot boxes in the town clerk’s recent auction. The locked boxes will be placed at strategic locations around the town. Envelopes with money, checks made out to Town of Milton, with 350th and the candidates name, will be counted as votes. To be clear, a $10 check equals 10 votes.

Parties are planned. Fun will be had.
