One of the unsung heros in the whole library drop box fiasco is resident Candace Milligan.
It was Milligan who brought to the attention of the mayor and members of the city council the numerous safety concerns in having the drop boxes relocated to the back of the library and was instrumental in persuading the city in finding a solution to the matter.
To say that Milligan concerns was originally met with resistance my the mayor and certain members of the city council would be an understatement…in fact, as you'll see in the following video, you can say that Candance's comments were dismissed by Boughton, and committee members Colleen Stanley and Phil Curran.
Not discouraged by the reaction she received at the ad-hoc meeting, Milligan continued to press the issue of safety by reiterating her concerns to City Hall and to the media, which included announcing a rally at City Hall in support of moving the drop boxes to a safer location.
Now that her due diligence in the matter has paid off, this afternoon I had a chance to interview Milligan and get her reaction to the news that the boxes will be relocated from it's present location to the median between Union Savings Bank and the library.
