Mitch Bolinsky

Office: Legislative Council - 3rd District

Objectives:

My family and I have lived in Newtown for 11-years, every one of which I have served as a volunteer in the community.  I love this town and, as an accomplished team player with a history of working across and beyond individual differences, believe I can add a great deal to our Council and be successful as an advocate for the people of District 3.

If you want a say in local affairs, please make me your Councilman.  No empty promises.  I am sincerely committed to listen and represent the families of this district – making known our collective priorities with enthusiasm, integrity and consideration of your needs. 

I am fiscally conservative, opposed to unfunded state mandates and believe our town and school district must continue Pat Llodra’s work to find and achieve shared efficiencies, maximize the bang from our budget bucks and keep dollars in the classroom. It’s possible and, more than ever, it’s necessary.

But first, I need your vote.  If you have questions, suggestions, concerns or want to help in some way, please let contact me.
