The Milford Labor Day parade drew several presidential candidates and a raft of supporters for other candidates. Bernie Sanders’ supporters carrying signs and chanting “Bernie” and “Sanders in the White House” numbered about 1000. John Kasich had about 100 supporters, and the rest had fewer. Kasich, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham and Bernie were the candidates marching. People were thronging and cheering Bernie as he walked by while the other candidates marched down the middle of the street with little enthusiasm shown by any of the spectators.
Governor John Kasich spoke Wednesday at New England College’s Town Hall forum. Local voters as well as students from Henniker Community School’s 7th and 8th grades were in attendance. The governor answered questions about illegal immigration, Social Security, the vanishing middle class, education, the high cost of education and student debt, massive incarceration, and his stand on controlling unions.
