Republican RTM Caucus appoints John Donovan budget director

The Republican RTM caucus announced today (Monday, March 16) that John Donovan, a first-term RTM Republican from District One who has spent his career working in the financial services industry, has been appointed as its Budget Director for this year’s budget cycle.

In this position, Rep. Donovan will facilitate Republican caucus budget meetings, budget discussions, budget analysis and generate support for budget initiatives, while working hard to mitigate Town spending, and the impact to the taxpayer. In addition, Rep. Donovan will liaison directly with both the First Selectman and the Superintendent of Schools on behalf of the Republican RTM caucus. Representative Donovan’s appointment was unanimously approved by the Republican RTM leadership team, and applauded by the full caucus.

Commenting on the appointment, Edward Bateson, Republican Majority Leader remarked, “John Donovan has a sharp analytical mind and a tenacity for rolling up his sleeves to ensure no stone is left unturned when it comes to looking for cost savings and operational efficiencies in Town government. We have great faith in John’s financial acumen and look forward to his contributions as this year’s Budget Director for our caucus. Please join me in welcoming John to his new leadership position.”

“We are pleased that the First Selectman has produced a tax rate increase of under two percent this year, but it is imperative that all bodies with budgetary authority (namely the BOS, BOF and RTM) scrutinize the budget closely to identify further savings,” said Michael D. Herley, Deputy Majority Leader. “Having worked closely with John in District One, I know that he has the vitality to be a strong advocate for the taxpayer.”

The Republican RTM majority remains dedicated to a thorough review of the First Selectman’s budget and is eager to find additional savings for the taxpayer.
