Milton Yacht Club has again paid for raw materials and supplied the knowledge and labor to rebuild the main float that comprises Milton Landing’s public access dock. Used as a turn-key access solution by community boaters as well as the MHS Crew program, the entire float system was in need of repairs.
TO: MY TOWN MATTERS
I am Chairman of a committee to support the passage of QUESTION 1 that will appear on the ballot Election Day, April 28th.
The background for this ballot questions was the tragic on duty injury of a Milton Firefighter on June 30, 2007. Our brave Milton Firefighter was helping a woman involved in a car accident when he was hit by a drunk driver, thrown over 40 feet to land in the middle of Blue Hill Ave. with traumatic injuries to his head and entire body. As we all honor the heroic sacrifice made that day, there is another side to this tragedy that the Town has had to address. The financial side.

Dear fellow Milton residents,
I have decided not to seek re-election as Library Trustee.
I am grateful that I had the opportunity to serve on this board for 8 years and for all the Constituents who voted for me. It was truly a pleasure to serve the Town of Milton and all of the residents who call it home. The library has made amazing strides in the past, as I am sure it will in the future. The support it enjoys is unparalleled.
Letter from Erica Dunton of Milton Sustance Abuse Prevention Coalition
On behalf of the new Milton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, I would like to tell you about who we are. This organization was formed last September and is made up of residents, parents, youth, and representatives from the schools, police, town officials and many others coming together to tackle the issues of alcohol and substance abuse, particularly among our youth in the town of Milton.
In a letter to Michael Huerta, Administrator of the F.A.A. dated January 9, 2015, Representative Timilty expressed his concerns with the adverse impacts of airplane traffic over Milton. He requested Mr. Huerta’s attention to this issue. Representative Timilty wrote:
It is my understanding that the F.A.A. has hte regulatory authority to address thes issue when the effect of both noise nad air pollution are deemed to be detrimental to the health and well-being of a community. [Milton] is an egregious exampls of such a situation. . . the negative effects of poor air-quality, resulting from aviation emissions continue to engender long-term harmful consequences for the residents of Milton . . . Thereore, I am urging the F.A.A., in the strongest possible terms, to review the concners presented by the citizens of Milton.

Letter from Deborah Milbauer
Thank you so much for highlighting the opioid epidemic issue. Governor Deval Patrick declared a state of emergency last March in part because deaths from overdose now exceed deaths from car accidents. Some funding (20 million – although not nearly enough to address the issue fully) was allocated to address it. Some money was allocated to expand access and reimbursement to drug treatment, and some money for prevention dollars (which is the area in which I work).
As the holiday rush begins in earnest, I wanted to let you know that Saturday, Nov. 29 is the date of this year’s Small Business Saturday. Started in 2010, Small Business Saturday aims to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for our community.
As summer winds down and we look to fall, our thoughts turn to school, cooler nights, apple picking, and any number of fun New England activities. Included in my list of great fall activities is Crew. As some of you know, I was fortunate enough to have been a twelve time National Champion in my home country of Serbia.
Letter from Dan Cullinane, Candidate for re-election to MA House of Representatives
Thanks to your support and hard work, the 12th Suffolk district overwhelmingly sent me back to Beacon Hill last Tuesday in a four-way primary with 67% of the vote! It was a fun summer on the campaign trail, but I’m excited to be back at work fighting for the issues you care about in the State House.
