John Milone - Town Council At Large
I am proud to be running, for a second term, as a Republican candidate for Cheshire Town Council at Large. Over the past 37 years, I have had the good fortune to have raised my four children while also building a successful business here. For me, this continues to be an opportunity to give back to our community in a meaningful way.
I am committed to respectful and balanced leadership, strong fiscal oversight; public safety; quality education, schools, parks, and public spaces and continued economic growth. If re-elected, I will continue to listen to you and maintain an open and honest approach to governing, focusing on what is best for our community and our residents while avoiding the divisiveness of national politics and global issues.
I am very fortunate to have come from a modest upbringing, where my father, a police officer, and my mother, a working mom (somewhat unusual in the 50s and 60s), instilled in my sisters and me a strong sense of appreciation for being born in this great country, a consistent reminder of our responsibility to others and a strong work ethic. Both of my parents and my three sisters, all of whom pursued careers in either education and/or healthcare, strongly influenced my belief system. We were raised to be respectful and accepting of all people, a life foundation that I am so grateful for.
I pursued a career as a Professional Engineer and in 1984 I co-founded Milone & MacBroom, Inc., which grew to be one of the most well-regarded engineering, planning, landscape architectural, and environmental design firms in the Northeast. Based in Cheshire, with regional offices throughout New England and New York, we grew the firm to about 185 employees before merging into a global consultancy known as SLR International Corporation in 2020. We still maintain our office in Cheshire where I continue to work as our US Sector Leader for Built Environment, lead our U.S. Culture & Diversity Committee, and oversee our Mergers and Acquisitions Team for the United States.
