On Thursday, August 23, the City of Milford held a special election to fill the Ward 2 Council seat vacated by Jamie Burk. There were 169 votes cast in the election with Culotta receiving 92 and Fulton receiving 77.
“I want to thank the voters who came out to cast a ballot,” Culotta said. “I want to thank my opponent for running an honest campaign. This is an exciting time for me. After my mayoral loss, I still wanted to help the City of Milford. When the seat came open on City Council, I knew this was the next step for me. This will give me the opportunity to help make Milford, which is already great, an even better place.”
Fulton, who serves on Milford’s Planning and Zoning Commission, explained that he enjoyed volunteering and that he would continue to give his time to the City in an effort to make the town even better.
“The election was a win for the City,” Fulton said. “This was a campaign of friendship with two people who have a joint view of the City. Todd won and he has wonderful ideas for Milford. Todd and I have been sharing ideas all day as we waited for the results. I think he has great plans for Milford and I am looking forward to seeing him bring those plans to life.”
Election Commissioner Karen Boone explained that Culotta will be sworn in prior to the City Council meeting on September 10, 2018 at 7 PM.
