David Freedman

Office: Board of Education


I believe we are at a critical time in our community where we have the ability to be the leaders in our state and across the country by creating a model of fiscal responsibility, social communication and transparency.  By working together we can share in a vision and progress that will continue to serve our community into the future.  

I have had an extensive career serving communities, and nonprofits and for serving our community with the needs  that with my M.B.A and my extensive professional experience in financial and business operations of municipal, non-profit and for profit companies would be a great asset to the Town of Newtown Board of Education.

I am a bottom line individual with a proven track record of increasing operational efficiency and generating cost savings.  I have designed and implemented policies and procedures with respect to non-profit business operations and administration, staff development and training, and strategic and organizational planning.  I have demonstrated the ability to think strategically, be action oriented, lead cross-functional teams, to coordinate and manage complex problems and possess the ability to interface with all levels of an organization, to lead, to motivate and to get the job done.
