Vote for experience in Milton

February 28, 2024

Now is not the time for radical changes to the makeup of Milton Town Council members. The old saying, “Don’t change horses in the middle of the stream,” applies today. The two incumbents, Lee Revis- Plank and Fred Harvey, have the experience and knowledge to finish the work the town has been engaged in. A new, inexperienced candidate (trainee) is not in the town’s best interest. 

Revis-Plank, who is our vice mayor, has served on the economic development and parking improvement committees. She has succeeded in bringing new ideas and business opportunities, as well as parking solutions to Milton. Business savvy is her resumé. She served for many years on the historic preservation committee. 

Harvey has served as the chair of the water committee. He has been able, through his leadership, to increase the new construction water impact fee. At present, he is working on the lead pipe abatement, new water lines to replace very old ones and addressing new water infrastructure needs. With the new impact fee, we will be in a better position to address repairs and add new water mains. Harvey is also a valued lifelong citizen, and has worked in our schools and is a member of our fire department. He understands Milton’s heritage.

These two incumbents also know council needs to keep in mind that we are a historic town and to continually maintain its image as such. Radical changes to the town’s infrastructure at this juncture would be irresponsible. Please vote for experience!
