Rezonings, Congratulations to our Youth and other Updates.
Dear Milton Friends, Neighbors and Citizens -
As the school year winds down, I want to wish all students a wonderful and safe summer vacation. And to those young men and women about to graduate from elementary, middle, high school and college, congratulations. You have achieved much and have a wonderful future ahead of you. I challenge you to be the best you can be each and everyday, giving of yourself and your talents, and choosing to make a difference in the world. As noted by Tom Brokaw in a commencement speech, "You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world. "

I would also like to thank Troop 3000 for asking me to speak to them at a recent camp out event they had regarding citizenship. This is a fine group of young men who already represent and define what it is to be a good citizen. They are an inspiring group of youth that represent a positive future for our community and world. It was an honor and a privilege to spend time with them.
As always, let me know if you have questions or issues with which I can be of service.
All my best -
