Pete, his wife Tammy, and their three children have called New Milford home for 29 years. Pete knows New Milford and our town government, prior to being our Mayor having served six terms as a Town Council Member and former owner of Archway News in our historic downtown. He has served the community as a volunteer in many ways: New Milford Downtown business Alliance Chairman, Economic Development Commissioner, coach, and mentor to countless kids. Pete was instrumental in getting the turf fields designed, approved, and funded through involving the public, networking, and driving consensus and support. It is through his strong relationships and ties to the community that he knows effective government doesn’t have to be dictatorial and adversarial, but participative and welcoming of ideas and input that results in better decisions and strong community.
Pete believes that New Milford’s diverse population, from rich to poor, should be treated respectfully and that your voice and input is very important as New Milford belongs to all of us.
Pulling together and sharing ideas, Pete knows we can tackle the important issues facing New Milford. From fixing our roads, to creating jobs, and everything in between. When we work together, there is nothing we cannot achieve. Thank you for helping to make us the, "best Town in the USA!"
