NEW MILFORD — Friday’s mayoral debate between challenger Pete Bass, a Republican, and Democratic incumbent David Gronbach drew out stark differences between the two candidates on issues ranging from the town’s approach to road projects to the role of the Board of Finance in town government. One of the few things they agreed on was support for the New York Mets rather than the Yankees or Red Sox.
Suit against New Milford mayor back in courtNEW MILFORD — A lawsuit accusing Mayor David Gronbach of misappropriating town funds by bypassing the Board of Finance was back on the docket this week after a summer of inaction. The suit, brought by Republican Town Committee Chairman Mike Barnes, contends Gronbach used money from the Landfill Settlement Fund — more commonly known as the Waste Management Fund — and the town contingency fund without Board of Finance approval.
NEW MILFORD — Mayor David Gronbach wrote on Facebook Friday morning that someone had stolen a re-election lawn sign from his front lawn — two weeks after he asked residents to let lawn signs be. In a news release and accompanying Facebook post written earlier this month, Gronbach urged residents to “be adults and set a good example.”“Please don’t trespass on someone else’s property to remove or vandalize a sign,” he wrote. Gronbach faces Republican Pete Bass in the Nov. 7 election.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
