Milford to hold city council elections in April

Seven candidates for city council have filed with the city of Milford as they prepare for upcoming elections.

Cindy Schofield, Former Mayor Daniel Marabello and Samuel J. Passwaters, III have filed for Chris Mergner’s seat representing the first ward.

“At this time, I have elected to not seek another term for city councilman Ward 1 seat. While I have valued my tenure on the council, I am looking forward to focusing on my current employment, community involvement, and spending the additional quality time with my family.

Ms. Schofield ran against Michael Boyle in the last election for the first ward.

Vice Mayorr Douglas E. Morrow, representing the third ward, will run against Brian C. Baer.

Todd Culotta from the second ward and fourth ward newcomer Jason James, Sr. are both uncontested and will continue their roles within the council without a formal election, according to the city of Milford.

The election for wards one and three will take place Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Voters must be registered in the city by Thursday, March 28 in order to vote in this election. To register to vote or to confirm registration to vote in City of Milford Elections, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 302-422-1111.
