Connie Milstein hosted a “watch party” at her Georgetown home for David and Susan Axelrod, who founded CURE (Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy).
There is no longer any reason to feel guilty about indulging in delicious baked goods, pastries, pies, cakes cookies or other treats. If you come to Mt. Kisco, New York or Northern Westchester Hospital, just stop by Connie’s Bakery and General Store and by yourself some guilt-free treats. How? Because every dollar spent at Connie’s contributes to the charities that 100% of the profits earned there go to.
Connie’s Bakery is an innovative idea whose time has come. Connie Milstein is the moving force behind this extraordinary endeavor whose mission is multi-faceted. To begin with, at Connie’s only the finest, most wholesome ingredients are used to make baked goods like Grandma used to make. Secondly, whenever possible, local businesses, craftsmen and farmers are supported through Connie’s insistence that these businesses get priority when purchasing decisions are made. Lastly, Connie Milstein believes in leading by example, and therefore employees are paid a living wage, including complete medical coverage and benefits for all full-time employees.
Stop by Connie’s bakery and get some guilt-free baked goods and gifts, too.

As one of today’s leaders and a trustee on the Democratic Leadership Council, Connie Milstein is entrusted with identifying and supporting the nurturing and promotion of tomorrow’s leaders today.
Through the DLC Fellows Program 25 up and coming leaders are identified as showing promise in the DLC’s goals of developing reform and the exchange of ideas. These emerging leaders are brought together to discuss their views and ideas and the current trends towards reform in the United States.
These DLC Fellows will guide the national network of state-by-state leadership training workshops. These workshops have already come together in 22 states.
As a trustee on the Democratic Leadership Council, Connie Milstein believes in the goals of the DLC. The following brief descriptions should give you an idea of what the DLC’s goals are:
A Successful Agenda of Reform and Improvement– Through research and education via the publishing of reports, cutting-edge solutions, hosting working sessions and forums we will advance the reforms we support on the major challenges facing us today, such as health-care reform, education, energy, trade, economic and fiscal long-term responsibility, and more.
A Belief in Pragmatism and Not Ideology– We believe we need to look past party politics and ideology and concentrate on finding practical solutions to the issues we all agree are urgent. We want all Americans to work together to achieve our goals of a better life for all.
Get the Country Moving Again– Employing reform with responsibility we want to move past the inertia of current politics. We hope to aggressively reach out to promote our ideas and the goal of reform. We plan on working jointly and closely with the White House, Cabinet and the Congress.
