At the annual meeting of the Cape and Islands Democratic Council, Sandy Milano, a Democratic town committee member from Yarmouth, was elected president of the board.  Given the priorities and policies of the Trump Administration,  Milano vows lead with “humanity and compassion” to fight for fairness and social justice by participating in elections at every level of government and advocating for issues that matter to Democrats on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

“As a proud Democrat, here are a few things I know – we are the party of inclusion and now, more than ever, our community needs to understand that we will fight the good fight.  Our fight is for fairness and social justice in all aspects of our lives,” said Milano.  “We are on the right side of history here. We need to stand up and be heard, but even more so we need to participate, educate and advocate for the values we hold dear.”

Milano is a small business owner, who is active in her community and local politics.  She has been a member of the Yarmouth Democratic Town Committee since 2013,  participated in field work for former AG Martha Coakley’s 2014 U.S. Gubenatorial Race and was a key member of State Senator Julian Cyr’s kitchen cabinet during his recent campaign.  Milano also spent a decade volunteering for the Boston Pops, “Pops by the Sea” annual Cape Cod concert. 

Milano is joined by a newly elected 21 member committee of Democrats who represent the district from Provincetown to Oak Bluffs.  Members of her Executive Team include Immediate Past President Robert Isadore, Yarmouth; Upper Cape VP Lou Cerrone, Sandwich; Mid-Cape VP, Susan Rohrbach, Centerville; Lower Cape VP Dave Schropher, Eastham; Islands VP Leon Braitwaite, Oak Bluffs; Treasurer Ian Ryan, Harwich; Asst. Treasurer Bob Samoluk, Dennis; and, Secretary Katie Jacobs, Brewster. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
