2021 Slate of Candidates

Keeping Madison Vibrant, Affordable, and Strong!

We seek to recruit civic-minded citizens for election or appointment to Town of Madison boards and commissions, supporting Republican candidates for office at the local and state level who will be responsive to the needs of Madison, actively encouraging the enrollment of Madison residents as Republicans, and encouraging unaffiliated voters to support Republican candidates.


Responsive Leadership with the Experience to Balance:

First Selectman

Bruce Wilson for First Selectman

“Madison was my childhood home and I returned in 1992 to raise my family. As a young father, I trusted the dedicated volunteers in town government to keep Madison strong and safe. For the last ten years, it has been my great honor to be one of those volunteers. My career and town service has prepared me to help navigate Madison forward into the future as your next First Selectman.”   




Board of Selectmen

Joe Bunovsky

“My family moved to Madison in the 1970s to provide better schools and opportunities for my sister and I. Fast forward many years and all of my four children are now DHHS graduates. For the past 10+ years, I’ve donated my time to various boards and commissions in town. My ultimate goal is to give back to a town that has given so much to two generations of my family.”

“I am running to represent all citizens of Madison. I love this community and its people. During my 25 years of public service, I have followed the advice of one of my heroes, the late Governor Ella Grasso who taught me that ‘government must be honest, available, and responsive.’ I’m proud to have lived up to that and will continue to. It’s time to come together, putting Madison first.”




Board of Finance

Jean Fitzgerald, Current Chair of Board of Finance

“It’s been my honor to serve Madison for the last four years on the BOF and I am grateful for all the support I have received. With so many large initiatives on the horizon for Madison, I look forward to continuing the great work our Board has done balancing community needs today and spending for the future. I am committed to advocating for the very best town services, investing in our students, and supporting our seniors.”



Happy Marino

“Madison residents can count on me for the same unwavering honesty and commitment they saw from my six years serving on the Board of Ed. I will continue to ensure all town residents have the straight facts and figures – with no emotional hype – to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. There are many important initiatives coming before Madison for our approval in the near future and I would be honored to help be your voice.”



Board of Education

Mary Ann Connelly

“Children have always been the center of my life. The physical and mental well-being of my students, patients, and their families has always been my main concern, especially during these tenuous times. I promise if elected I will do everything in my power to advocate for our children.”



Jennifer Gordon

“My connection to the Madison Public School System and desire to volunteer has led me to run for Board of Education. With so much potential change, I want to help guide this growth by maintaining the values that Madison is known for.”



Christine Maisano

“Through my many years of serving as Vice-Chair and Finance Director on a Board of Ed, I have learned a great deal and I am eager to once again become engaged, devote my time and energy, and watch our students reap the benefits of a solid team of Board of Ed members working in unison to grow our educational system even further. If elected, I will always do my homework, ask the hard questions and vote with my conscience.”
