Michael Dailey Will Seek a Seat on Madison Borough Council

Michael Dailey, a Madison resident since 1998, is a Republican candidate for Madison Borough Council. Michael and his running mate Mackaella Goodwin are looking to bring diversity to a body that is currently comprised of all Democrats

MADISON — Michael Dailey is proud to announce his candidacy for Madison Borough Council in this year’s General Election.  Michael and his running mate, Mackaella Goodwin, both Republican candidates, recognize that local government requires participation from citizens in order to work effectively and be truly representative of the people.


Michael has lived in New Jersey nearly all his life and spent his youth in Roselle.  After graduating from Seton Hall University, he started his career in the western US, but he eventually made his way back east and moved to Madison in 1998.

Michael’s work involves business-to-business sales within the custom home automation industry.  For the last few decades, all of his customers have been small businesses in the tri-state area, and for a time Michael even ran his own small business.  He knows first-hand the struggles that small businesses face as they operate within NJ.

Michael is a husband, father, employee, and community volunteer.

Goodwin and Dailey Priorities

Mackaella Goodwin and Michael Dailey are running for Madison Borough Council because they believe Madison’s borough government should serve the needs of the people who live and work in Madison, New Jersey. There are five areas that they will focus on as council members:

• Prevent any increase in property taxes.
• Address the needs of Madison’s playgrounds and athletic fields.
• Substantially lower the electric rates charged by Madison’s municipally-owned electric utility.  Madison’s rates are among the highest in NJ.
• Continue to modernize Madison’s roads, sewers, and utilities.
• Ensure that Downtown Madison remains through solid planning for the future.

Michael looks forward to the opportunity to serve on the Borough Council on behalf of his Madison neighbors.  The candidates will not be knocking on doors this year due to the continuing pandemic, but voters can contact Michael and Mackaella at goodwinanddailey@gmail.com and follow their campaign on the Madison Republican Committee website click here.
