To the Editor:

This letter is in regards to Mayor Patricia Murphy's outstanding contributions to the town of New Milford.

She has given her time and effort and love to the people of this community.

Mayor Murphy works hard and consistently in all areas, such as long hours on the budget to fulfill the needs of the people of New Milford.

She sets a good example for all the youth of the 21st century by giving her time for the greater good.

Nothing seems to be a hardship for her to tackle when it comes to helping the people of this town.

The mayor's qualities include the things we need for peace in the world.

She is an excellent mentor, hard worker, compassionate, good listener, outstanding politician and has an ability and commitment to whatever she sets out to do.

Mayor Murphy also maintains a strong vision to make this community more economically successful.

I highly recommend she continue as mayor for another term.
