Gottheimer noted, “Councilwoman Thea Sirocchi-Hurley has served her last two terms in office with a talent and commitment to detail that helps her to make a difference every day, and I know she will bring that exact same energy to her third term — helping to make New Milford even greater place to live, to do business, and to raise a family.”
