Milford Democratic Town Committee to Honor O’Loughlin

The Milford Democratic Town Committee (DTC) will honor longtime police chief Thomas O'Loughlin at their second annual spring brunch, on Sunday, March 31, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Crystal Room, Cedar St., Milford.

O'Loughlin has served as Milford's police chief since 2001, and has proven himself invaluable in the fight against crime: according to official statistics, Milford's crime rate in 2018 reached its lowest level in a decade. Under his direction, the Milford Police Department has tackled the opioid crisis by partnering with social service organizations to rehabilitate users. The police department was one of the first in the state to provide Narcan to officers to prevent deaths from drug overdoses.

For 18 years, Chief O'Loughlin has served this community well and creatively," said Milford DTC chair Christine Crean. "He was able to collaborate with other community services and always tried to be helpful. And the support he has is a testimony to how his staff and how this town sees him."

Speakers at this year's brunch will focus on a theme of transparency and inclusion in government. The keynote address at the brunch will be delivered by State

Senator Jamie Eldridge, a tireless supporter

of progressive causes in his 15 years in the

state legislature. Framingham city councilor Margareth Shepard, the first Brazilian immigrant elected to a city council in the United States, will also be speaking.

"It is fundamental that immigrants be informed and participate in politics at the local level," Shepard said in a Facebook post announcing her participation. "We need to represent ourselves."

Also scheduled to speak is longtime Milford selectman and current State Representative Brian Murray, D. Milford, and Milford native Jeffrey Roy, the current State Representative for Franklin and Medway. The speakers

will be joined by candidates in Milford's town election, in one of the last stops on the campaign trail before the election on April 2.

Brunch tickets are $25, with proceeds benefiting the committee's outreach programs, including their annual high school scholarship. Tickets may be purchased from committee members or the committee's ActBlue website, http://www.actblue.com/donate/milford-dtc-1. More information on the brunch and other committee events is available through the Milford DTC's Facebook and Twitter pages, @ MilfordMaDTC.
