Dems say, ‘Welcome aboard, Republicans’

To the Editor:
Better late than never.
We were gratified to see the New Milford Republican Town Committee hold a fundraiser last month for the Loaves & Fishes Hospitality House, whose application for a permit to move to a Bridge St. location lies anew with the Zoning Commission after its defeat a year ago.
We’re happy to see the party in power finally come around to a position the New Milford Democratic Town Committee officially adopted in the spring of 2014.
Opposition to relocating the facility along Bridge St. continued even after Loaves & Fishes expressed a need to remain near the center of town because clients required ready access to town services.
This year - an election year, of course - downtown is suddenly a fine location for Loaves & Fishes. All the caveats about Bridge St. magically melted away.
This change of heart works to Loaves & Fishes’ benefit, of course. And that’s a good thing.
