Important announcement from Milford Mayor Ben Blake
“Earlier today, Governor Lamont nominated me to fill the post of Administrative Law Judge for Connecticut’s Workers’ Compensation Commission. I am humbled by the Governor’s confidence and trust. The legislature is expected to act upon the nomination before adjourning its session on June 7, 2023, and once confirmed, I intend to step down as Milford’s mayor to accept this new public service position. Until that time, my focus is to ensure a stable and seamless transition of administrations so that Milford continues to be soundly governed.
For the past 12 years, I have been responsible for managing the City’s operations while furnishing vision and direction for Milford’s successful future. With the help of our residents, employees, and volunteers, we have achieved unprecedented economic expansion, advanced our City schools, developed world class recreational amenities, and rebuilt critical public infrastructure – all while cutting taxes and reducing the City’s mill rate for each of the past seven (7) consecutive years. Every day I’m reminded of how much good there is in the Small City with a Big Heart. While it is an all-consuming job, serving as mayor for this remarkable community has been my greatest professional honor.
I’m grateful for your continued confidence and I look forward to our community’s successful future as we all work towards a healthy transition.”
