POLL RESULTS: What is your most pressing concern for 2019 Town-Wide Candidates?

There is always a great deal of discussion in Milton Neighbors about current town issues.

We asked in a recent poll: “What’s the most pressing issue for you, and why?”

Here are the results:

Schools, budgets, overcrowding: 45%

Development: 30%

Traffic/Pedestrian Safety: 25%

Select comments included:

“Creating an inclusive and welcoming community celebrating cultural/racial diversity [as a top concern].”

“[Development], as it relates to the placement of Affordable Housing in the Indian Cliffs neighborhood.”

“We simply need better town management that focuses on improving commercial potential wherever we can to provide more retail, business space and services to increase the tax base while looking at budget controls such as the enormous amounts of overtime accrued last year. Also it would be a very poor decision to hire as town CFO unless required to be a community resident. Bottom line run the town more like a business leader to achieve the needed revenue to support the schools and family needs first. Progress can be difficult but not taking reasonable actions will be even worse.”


Miltonscene.com online polls are not intended to be a scientific sample of local opinion. Instead, they are a way for readers to share their views on the news with the Milton Scene and Milton Neighbors.

Respondents are not randomly selected, but select themselves to vote on a specific question or set of questions. In addition, while Miltonscene.com online polls are designed to allow only one vote per user, technically savvy users may find ways around this limitation. For these reasons, the polls are not presented as scientific surveys or as representative of the opinion of the general population of our readership areas, region or nation.
