The referendum is another opportunity to make Milford a better place

By David and Ann Burton


We write in support of the referendum for a new high school on May 5th.

Milford is a fine, growing community. Many good things have happened here over the past few years and those of us who live here are very proud of our town. The proposed referendum is yet another opportunity to make Milford a better place. We cannot reach our full potential as a desirable, living community until our schools are at a high, competitive standard. Our children deserve the very best education we can provide.

The proposals made are sound. A wonderful site with enough acreage to provide for our needs well into the future, a new high school to replace the existing facility, a renovated middle school at the present high school/academy site putting on one campus all 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, and sufficient operating revenues, are all sound proposals. We need them all, and we need them now.

What makes Milford a great place is that it includes everyone. It is our place; we make it what it is. Our young families and their children are important to us all. An up to date educational facility with adequate funding strengthen us all. We urge you to vote yes for the referendum on May 5th.
