My name is Joshua Steele Kelly; I am a public official from Connecticut, currently serving as the Town Administrator in Bolton, CT. I am a graduate of Wheaton College in Norton, MA, where I received my bachelors degree with a major in political science and minors in both public policy and sociology. I received my Masters in Public Administration and Graduate Certificate in Public Financial Management from the University of Connecticut in May 2019.
I have dedicated my life to service, having now served in multiple elected, hired, and appointed positions. In elective office, I was most recently chosen to serve as a member of Waterford's Representative Town Meeting in 2017 and, during my time on the RTM, I was elected to serve as my caucus' leader, to serve as the chair of the town's Legislation & Administration Committee, and to serve as a member of the town's Long Range Fiscal Planning Committee. I served as an appointed member of the town's combined Inland Wetland & Conservation Commission, and I was first elected to office as an Alternate on the Zoning Board of Appeals in 2015. Professionally, I have served as the Management Analyst for the Town of Windsor, CT, and currently serve as the Town Administrator in Bolton, CT. I will leave that position in early April and become the Town Manager of Winchester, CT, on April 19, 2021.
I greatly value representing and serving the people Bolton, and I hope that you won't hesitate to contact me with any and all questions, comments, concerns, and ideas that you may have.
