Political introductions during election season

As a courtesy to public servants, the Milton Scene accepts political candidacy announcements for local elections. No independently-posted candidacy announcements are permitted on the Milton Neighbors Facebook group. Announcements must be submitted via The Milton Scene. This is to ensure fairness for all candidates.

Candidacy announcements are due to The Milton Scene two weeks prior to Election Day. Candidacy announcements received after the due date will not be posted on The Milton Scene or in Milton Neighbors.
