Milford voters pick Peel and approve sewer referendum

MILFORD – A large majority of Milford residents that participated in today’s special election voted to allow the city to borrow money for needed sewer infrastructure repairs and Ward 2 voters picked a new council representative.

Voters chose Lisa Ingram Peel as their new Ward 2 Councilwoman. Mrs. Peel earned 132 votes defeating her challenger Stephen C. Walter with 87 votes.

The need for the special council election came about after long-time Councilman and businessman Skip Pikus died a few months ago.

Originally the Ward 2 race had three challengers, but Deborah O’Neill decided to withdraw early last week.

A total of 265 Milford voters participated in the sewer referendum vote – 208 for the measure with 57 against.
