Sen. Scott Brown takes his Campaign to Milford

U.S. Scott Brown kicked off a bus tour Thursday, and stopped by Johnny Jacks Restaurant to meet with residents and local police.

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown stepped off a campaign bus to an enthusiastic crowd at Johnny Jacks Restaurant Thursday, where he met with local residents, officials and police.

The senator kicked off a bus tour, the "People Over Party" tour, with the stop in Milford, where he also picked up an endorsement from the local police union.

He traveled with Maine Sen. Susan Collins. The campaign also was expected to make a stop later in the morning in Grafton.

Brown is running for election to a full term in the U.S. Senate. He was elected in 2009 in a special election, taking the place of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. This year, he faces as opponent Elizabeth Warren, a professor at Harvard University Law School.

The race is among the most expensive in the country and is being closely followed by national media.

Regarding the money for Milford Pond restoration..... That is why WE LOCALLY should be deciding on priority projects for what we need locally. It should not be a concern of those in other states. The reverse could be if we were complaining (which we are) when other states representatives bring home the PORK. THAT'S THE WHOLE ISSUE JIM!! You just don't get it. It's because the pool of money comes from the Federal Government that there is concern whether it is really a priority, or whether a certain Senator or Representative is just REALLY GOOD at "Bringing Home the Bacon". THAT IS WHY WE ARE IN THE POSITION WE ARE IN!! Hope the Cement has soften enough to let the ear drums feel the vibes!!

Good stuff! Yes. all great powers decline. We are just doing it at an accelerarted rate unpecedented in history. The Romans lasted almost 600 years, the British 400 years and we are lucky to last 300. The evolution of power has returned to its original seat in China. It took almost 600 years for that to happen. I suspect that the rotation of power will move at an accelerated rate as long as we depend on ever growing economic growth versus sustainability of consumption. The decline is a geometric function of greed and concentration of wealth
