Tom O’Brien for Mayor

Quality of Life for All New Milford

  •  Quality Leadership

  •  Quality Education

  • Quality Economy

  • Quality Government

Tom is the right man for the job because he has a proven track record of success in setting a vision for the town and then successfully achieving it. As a community leader who worked to develop the New Milford River Trail, Tom sets a goal to improve resident’s quality of life and then is able to see it through. As a carpenter, Tom runs his successful small business always looking to the future.  He knows that if you’re hired for a job you either do it right or they find someone else. He also knows that to achieve anything, you need the right tools for the job. That’s the mentality he’ll bring as the next Mayor of New Milford.

From serving on the Zoning Commission to coaching youth sports to spearheading the creation of the New Milford River Trail, Tom has been improving our community for decades.

As a leader in efforts to protect our town's historical character, revitalizing the Housatonic River, and promoting alternative transportation, he continues to serve on a variety of Town Committee and non-profit boards.  Tom and his wife, Cece (a local teacher) live in New Milford with their son Jake. Tom put himself through college (BA from S.U.N.Y Oswego) by working hard and he will work just as hard for you!
