Board of Finance
John Madzula II
My name is John S. Madzula II, and I am running for re-election to the Board of Finance as an incumbent.
I currently practice as a litigation and transactional attorney in the areas of insurance defense, construction litigation, business formation, asset purchase and sales, and bonding/surety disputes. My profession requires me to analyze facts and data and make well-informed and reasonable decisions. These decisions are not always easy but are in the best interest of all parties involved. Prior to becoming an attorney, I ran a successful architecture, building, and construction management firm with my father for over 12 years throughout Fairfield County. This line of work required me to understand budgeting, financing, and commercial lending while possessing the ability to balance the needs of individuals within their budgetary constraints.
I served one term on the Newtown Conservation Commission which propelled me to want to be more involved with the town and for the people. I am a current member of the Board of Finance, one of only two incumbents being proposed this election term. Over the past two years, the Board of Finance members and I have provided the role of an advisory and recommendation board when reviewing yearly budgets and other financial requests. I have experience dealing with financial budgets and the associated constraints during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past two years I have reviewed and analyzed budgets to improve the infrastructure of the roadways. I have had the opportunity to listen to new business opportunities and individuals wanting to bring economic development to Newtown. During all this, I have sought to maintain integrity while understanding the various needs of departments or boards while ensuring the best financial outcome for the people of this town. I pride myself on providing oversight while demanding accountability.
Newtown is home to me. I have only ever wanted the best for this quaint town, our people, and to make our founders proud. I am honored to be running for re-election for the Board of Finance. I hope I can count on all of you to vote for me in November and allow me the opportunity to work for the benefit of all residents of our beautiful town.
