MILTON: Dems emerge

Resident Marian Barba presented several options for a party slogan, including "making a great place better," and "many voices, more choices."

Barba said she also hopes a strong Democratic group can work to improve the lives of other town residents.

"I have no fault to find in town, but I'm comfortable and middle-class," said Barba. "But there are a lot of people in this town who aren't OK, and they're probably not registered to vote."

Barba said she would like to work to promote donations to food pantries and battle the rising tide of illiteracy with tutoring and mentoring programs.

"If we can help the community, then we've won, but in a different way," said Ellie Dillon. "Somehow our philosophy could move the town in a new direction."

Stevens said she will begin her public campaigning at the Saratoga County Fair starting July 17.

"Even if I don't win, I want a wake up call in the town of Milton," said Stevens. "I don't want (the Republicans) to feel they're an automatic 'in.' There should be a choice."
