Before heading to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention this week, 5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty spent some time in New Milford. She met with Mayor David Gronbach for a small business walk through downtown. One of the stops was to Bank Street Book Nook where Esty says she was also able to do some birthday shopping for her son.
They then stopped at Miles Finch Innovation. She learned about bringing artists and people in the maker movement together. Esty says she learned a great deal about the start up culture and entrepreneurship in New Milford.
They also stopped at Ameico Incorporated to see art and design objects in that space on Church Street.
Esty called the tour fascinating and fun. She said she was also pleased to see a lot of people out on such a hot day, patronizing local businesses.
