    MADISON — Mackaella Goodwin is proud to announce her candidacy for Madison Borough Council in this year’s General Election.  Mackaella is running alongside fellow Republican Michael Dailey as the candidates vie for the two open seats on Madison’s Borough Council that are on the ballot this year.

    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.

    Mackaella looks forward to the opportunity to serve on the Borough Council on behalf of her Madison neighbors.
