Milford Wins Again

Mayor James L. Richetelli Jr. traveled to Washington, D.C. Thursday as the city was named for the third straight year as one of the top 100 Best Communities in America for Young People.

Milford was once again the only community in the state to garner the recognition, and is just a handful of municipalities across the country to earn the honor for three straight years. This means Milford’s number per say is retired, and will serve as a life-long honor.

The competition run by America’s Promise, the Alliance for Youth, was based on hundreds of applications from all 50 states.

“It’s a tremendous honor for the city to be named for the third straight year,” Richetelli said from Washington, D.C. late Thursday. “This says volumes about the dedicated people in several groups.”
