Mayor’s Welcome Letter
adison, New Jersey offers the perfect combination of smalltown feel with the cosmopolitan draw that only a community near NYC would have. Sometimes called “The Rose City,” and “Bottle Hill,” nearly 16,000 residents, hundreds of thriving businesses and three colleges call it home.
It’s no surprise that CNN-Money Magazine’s 2011 list of The Best Small Towns in America ranks us number 33. In Madison you’ll find the internationally renowned club Shanghai Jazz, The New Jersey Shakespeare Theatre, The Museum of Early Trades and Crafts, The Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey and an historical downtown district with 52 buildings registered with the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, Madison is home to three higher education institutions that enrich the community with their outstanding programs. Drew University’s annual Forum Speakers Series presents esteemed thinkers such as Tony Blair, Colin Powell, Barbara Walters and Henry Kissinger. Fairleigh Dickinson University’s unique partnership with the United Nations brings dignitaries to lecture and teach, supporting their commitment to global education. And, The College of Saint Elizabeth hosts the “Week of Holocaust Remembrance” and houses a state-of-the-art performance hall. Commuters appreciate accessible, affordable train and bus transportation. The NJ Transit Midtown Direct takes riders to New York’s Penn Station in about an hour. Bus and shuttle services run regularly between the Madison train station and many business and shopping areas throughout town. Bicycling and walking around our picturesque neighborhoods are also favorite alternatives in a pedestrian friendly town like ours. Madison also boasts a high level of volunteerism and civic engagement. Whether it’s May Day, a town-wide sprucing up, Bottle Hill Day, the annual downtown fair or the work of service clubs such as Rotary along with volunteers serving on committees and boards, Madison’s level of community spirit is matched by no other town. Newcomers are welcomed with a “Come and join us” attitude. Highly ranked public schools. Clean and safe parks. Top restaurants. Cultural activities. A commitment to the arts. An historic heritage. Madison has it all, and that’s why we call it home.

Downtown Development Commission Join the Fun! By Russell Stern
hat do you get when you combine rich history with curated arts and culture? Madison, NJ. This might sound like a silly knock-knock joke … but we think it describes our community perfectly. The Downtown Development Commission (DDC) has committed the last 30 years to branding and promoting downtown Madison so that everyone who lives, works or visits here has an enjoyable and memorable experience.
The DDC consists of 18 Mayor-appointed volunteer commissioners representing a balanced cross section of public officials, business owners, landlords, residents and representatives from the local colleges, news media, merchants, nonprofits, seniors and corporations. Our commissioners include the Mayor of Madison, the Editor of the Madison Eagle, the President of the Madison Board of Education, the Assistant Vice President of Administration and University Relations at Drew University, as well as prominent members of the community. In an effort to bring people and attention to downtown Madison, the DDC coordinates several events and fund raisers which either take place in the center of town, or raise funds that benefit downtown. In early Spring, we host the Taste of Madison, in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce and The Rotary Club. The DDC runs the Madison Farmers Market, located off of Main Street every Thursday from June to October. We sponsor and coordinate May Day in Madison, a day of volunteerism that recruits close to 900 people to clean up the town. And, we throw the biggest party of the year, Bottle Hill Day, a gigantic street fair the first week of October with rides, live music, food, crafts and vendors. All proceeds raised by these events are used to enhance Madison’s public spaces, parks, lots, and the Historic District. The DDC thrives on partnerships with almost every organization in Madison. Recently one of the most fruitful collaborations has been with the Madison Arts & Cultural Alliance (MACA). Together we launched the Madison Arts Sidewalk Gallery and Gala Auction. From May to October, over 20 hand-painted original canvases decorate the Madison downtown. In October, the town gathers at Hartley Dodge Memorial, Madison’s stately Borough Hall, for the Art Gala where we all try to purchase our favorite works at a live auction. This night out hosted by the DDC and MACA is fun and friendly. Outbidding your friends and neighbors ... Priceless.
Another favorite partnership that we foster is the wildly successful “LOVE MADISON, SHOP MADISON” campaign which we share with the Madison Chamber of Commerce. Our organizations encourage everyone to support local downtown merchants by rewarding shoppers with prizes and press releases. Not only do most merchants proudly display the “LOVE MADISON, SHOP MADISON” sign in their front windows, but countless residents sport the iconic logo on colorful car magnets. If you get “caught” by the Prize Patrol with a Love Madison magnet on your car, you could win a prize! Our message is that shopping local yields many rewards. I can go on and on about the amazing work that the DDC volunteers do — and I often do — but the most important thing about the DDC is that we are all completely committed to making Madison beautiful and enjoyable. And with that, I invite you to JOIN THE FUN! For additional information visit the DDC website at https://gov.rosenet.org/agencies/ddc or contact the DDC at (973) 408-8787, MadisonDDC@gmail.com. Russell Stern is the Chairman of the DDC and has been the Director of Planning/Township Planner of Roxbury Township since 1995. In addition to 4 years with the DDC, he spent 10 years on the Zoning Board of Adjustment, one year on a parking garage study committee and one year on the Historic Preservation Committee.

Volunteerism The Madison Way of Life That is just one of countless examples of how Madison is a community of volunteers like no other. Bottle Hill Day, Madisonâ€™s bustling street fair and fund raiser, is coordinated and run by volunteers. The Taste of Madison is coordinated and run by volunteers. The Madison Music & Arts (AMA) which supports arts and culture in the public schools is an organization staffed by volunteers. The Madison Education Fund who in this last school year awarded over $120,000 in educational grants to our public schools is operated entirely by volunteers. The undefeated Madison Track and Field team is coached by an all volunteer staff. Truly the list goes on and on. On your next walk through Madisonâ€™s Rockwellesque downtown, take a minute to look around. Marvel in the lush public gardens, the custom-made alley way signs, the millennium clock, even the vintage lighting under the train trestle and remember that Madison is quite literally built on a foundation of volunteerism.
By Maureen McLaughlin Byrne
t is a seasonally warm Saturday in early May. A large crowd of about 1000 residents, business owners, scouts, students and leaders fill the front steps of the regal Hartley Dodge Memorial building to join the throngs of volunteers for the annual May Day in Madison event. Local and state politicians take turns at the podium praising the remarkable spirit of volunteerism of the day, thirty school-aged musicians wearing identical Madison Music shirts treat the crowd to a few patriotic songs, and an adorable cluster of youngsters entertain with a traditional May Pole dance. Sometimes it seems as if Madison, NJ has popped right out of a Norman Rockwell painting.
While the speeches, music and dance enhance the opening ceremony of May Day in Madison, the ceremony is not the event. The event is a full morning of volunteerism all over the town capped off with a huge community party. And this is not just any volunteer event and party. May Day is host to almost 1,000 volunteers who commit their Saturday morning to mulch, weed, clean and plant all the parks and public spaces in Madison. After a long morning of gardening (some start as early at 4am!), everyone is treated to free pizza donated by every pizzeria in town and drinks donated by local delis and markets. Live music provided by student musicians fills the air, and by 2:00 p.m. the entire town is beautified, refreshed and ready for spring. In the end, May Day in Madison volunteers and donations save the town and its tax payers close to $100,000 in landscaping and maintenance.
Maureen McLaughlin Byrne is Vice-Chairman of the Downtown Development Commission; during her time on the Commission she has chaired the Taste of Madison and the Farmers Market. In addition to her work with the Commission, Maureen is Chairman of the Friends of the Madison Public Library and a member of the Rotary Club of Madison and the Thursday Morning Club. She has been appointed by the Mayor and Council to study Borough operations and how they impact the general public and business communities.
Vintage Madison A Tradition of Volunteerism By John Morris
olunteerism in Madison comes in many happy varieties. A very flavorful variety thrives in the Madison business community. The leaders of this community include the dedicated people who have owned and operated businesses in our town for years.
I’m focusing on just three business owners. They are a representative sample of how outstanding people serve our town in creative and lasting ways within and above the sphere of commerce. Their volunteerism is inspired by the desire and the need to do right by their neighbors. Their efforts are inspiring. Carmine Toto Jr. is the proprietor of C. Toto & Sons, Inc. of 74 Keep Street. A family business, it has specialized in painting and contracting since his father, Carmine Sr. came to Madison from Italy in 1934. Now including the efforts of Carmine III, the three-generation business today focuses on the historic restoration of buildings and churches in addition to private homes.
Judy has been a founding and sustaining member and leader of several of Madison’s most vital non profit organizations. These include the Friends of the Madison Shade Trees, the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts, and the Madison Arts & Culture Alliance. Judy is a longtime member and former chair of the Madison Planning Board.
A former president of the Madison Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Forum Club, Carmine Jr. is the longtime chair of Madison Christmas Committee, which produces our town’s annual Christmas Parade. Under Carmine’s leadership the committee also maintains and installs a Santa’s Village on the grounds of the train station.
In addition to the personal efforts cited above, many volunteers in our business community are organized and represented by the Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc., an independent business league, and the Madison Downtown Development Commission, an entity of the Borough of Madison. Although the Chamber and DDC have different missions, which do overlap in healthy ways, both organizations work to maintain and enhance Madison as a great place to live, work and visit through programs, events, education and advocacy. Both organizations are led and managed by volunteers and their very own professional colleagues. All of them serve Madison as a whole.
Michael Odell, CPA, is a principal of Odell & Critchley, P.C., a certified public accounting firm at 333 Main Street. Every year on the day after Thanksgiving Michael is the main attraction at the Christmas Parade due to the joy he brings to the red and white costume he wears. Michael is Santa Claus at the parade and it’s a role he inherited from his father Bill Odell, who had been Santa for decades. A former two-term treasurer of the Madison Chamber of Commerce, in his free time Michael volunteers his expertise to many community organizations that affect Madison and beyond, which include the Rotary Club of Madison, the Rotary Foundation of Madison and the Taste of Madison.
Madison’s hearty type volunteerism is rooted in fruitful collaboration and the wonderful, lasting progress it creates. Represented here by Judy, Michael and Carmine, Madison’s business people are always among the first to support and to participate in volunteerism due to the benefits it creates for all concerned.
The Taste of Madison has no greater supporter than Judy Mullins, who with her husband Dennis owns and operates the landmark restaurant Poor Herbie’s at 13 Waverly Place. Poor Herbie’s is in the heart of downtown where the parking is always free. At Poor Herbie’s the motto is, “Come for the food, stay for the fun.”
John Morris is the president of Stewart-Morris Awards, Gifts & Flags and the president of the Madison Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Morris is the fourth generation in his family to own a business in Madison, NJ.

Arts, Culture & Entertainment By Deb Starker
hen it comes to arts and culture, Madison may well be the biggest little town in New Jersey.
Madison is home to two of New Jersey’s five professional live theater companies designated by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts as “Major Arts Institutions.” The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, which offers its main stage productions at the Kirby Theatre located on the campus of Drew University, is one of the leading Shakespeare theaters in the nation. Playwrights Theatre has been devoted to the development and presentation of new American plays for 23 years. A sparkling 431-seat, state-of-the-art concert hall opened in 2003 on the campus of Drew University, and presents music events that draw on the talents within the university community and brings renowned professional musicians from around the world to Madison. The Concert Hall at Drew University is the only facility in the state that was architecturally and acoustically designed as a single-use forum for the performance of live music. For jazz, there’s no place better on either side of the Hudson River than Shanghai Jazz, named by Downbeat magazine as one of the top 100 jazz clubs in the world. With a regular array of world-class jazz artists, fans enjoy the music while dining on outstanding Asian cuisine. The Harmonium Choral Society, a 75-voice auditioned community choir, performs a diverse repertoire of musical offerings throughout the year, and often host world renowned artists including the American Boychoir and the Harlem Gospel Choir, in addition to presenting their own music programs. The Museum of Early Trades & Crafts is a landmark in downtown Madison and is devoted to telling the story of how people in New Jersey lived and worked before the rise of large-scale industrialization in America. With a permanent collection of over 8,000 artifacts, The museum presents educational and historical programs, interpreting the lives of artisans, craftspeople and tradespeople of New Jersey around the time of the 18th and 19th centuries. Madison is also a haven for visual arts. The Korn Gallery in the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts on the campus of Drew University presents exhibitions on a regular basis. Our town is also home to many local artists art classes are offered at Creative Hands, and Art in Progress, two studios primarily devoted to the education of young (and sometimes not so young) artists. For those interested in pottery, Madison Mud is a fine art pottery studio providing classes on the pottery wheel or in hand building. Private workshops and classes are offered.
Connecting the arts and culture to the community is the primary focus of The Madison Arts & Culture Alliance (MACA), a coalition of arts organizations, cultural institutions, neighbors, colleagues and friends dedicated to encouraging collaborations among the wide-ranging cultural offerings in “the Rose City.” This non-profit group coordinates local events such as the Holiday Arts Festival, the Madison Artist Studio Tour, music for Bottle Hill Day, the Madison Sidewalk Gallery and advocates for arts education in the schools, colleges and universities. Deb Starker is the President of the Madison Arts & Culture Alliance (MACA).

The Chief Executive Council for Madison By Barb Short
t’s humbling to think that an idea developed in 2012 over a burger at a friendly charity softball game was presented the State of New Jersey Department of Community Affairs 2013 Award for Innovation in Governance by former New Jersey Governor and current State Senator Richard Codey. The Chief Executive Council for Madison (CECM), created by Quest Diagnostics CEO Steve Rusckowski along with Madison Mayor Bob Conley and then Drew University President Dr. Vivian A. Bull, brings together senior leaders from government, business and academia for collective impact, providing practical approaches to solving municipal problems and concerns.
Fostering the next generation of leaders is a key goal, so CECM collaborated with Junior Achievement® of New Jersey to create the “Emerging Leaders” executive luncheon series at Madison High School and Drew University, led by Quest CEO Steve Rusckowski and Chief Human Resources Officer Jeff Shuman as well as Realogy’s Executive Vice President and CAO Dave Weaving, a company perhaps better known by its leading brands like Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate, Caldwell Banker and Sotheby’s International Realty. In addition, Quest’s Shuman joined Weaving on the Junior Achievement of New Jersey’s Board of Directors, and he and Senior Vice President Commercial Everett Cunningham invited Quest employees to a Madison elementary school to teach 4th graders about entrepreneurship. CECM also jumped in to help in the Madison community effort to provide disaster recovery support to Union Beach, a small coastal New Jersey town
of year-round residents devastated by Hurricane Sandy, which contributed more than $300,000 and sent 50 displaced children to summer camp. Looking to the future, the group announced the Vivian A. Bull CECM Emerging Leaders Fellows Program at Drew University, funded by member organizations and executives, to support learning internships and “Emerging Leaders” education activities, and to support the sustainability of the group’s efforts and impact. The CECM plans remain centered around their founding commitments around stakeholder collaboration, corporate impact and education leadership. Barb Short is Executive Director, Quest Diagnostics Foundation and Director, Global Inclusion and Corporate Social Responsibility. Barb is a DDC Commissioner and sits on the Madison Area YMCA Board.
Preparing Students for Jobs that have yet to be Created
By Michael A. Rossi, Jr., Ph.D.
he Madison School District is a proud and progressive educational institution. We have a rich and storied tradition of academic, co-curricular and athletic excellence.
The foundation of these engagements starts with our three elementary schools. Serving children from preschool until the end of fifth grade our K-5 Schools are designed to differentiate instruction for a diverse group of learners. Our philosophy is to provide a developmentally appropriate education for each individual. The “three Rs” become infused across the curriculum and set the stage for success in all content areas during the middle and high school years. During their time at the Junior School and High School, Madison students have the chance to take dozens of enriched, honors, and Advanced Placement courses. With a talented faculty, hard-working administrative team and supportive parents, our students gain acceptance into the best colleges and universities around the globe. We also provide wonderful support services for struggling and special needs learners. At every level, the use of computers, software and other digital applications are central to the teaching and learning process. These “core content” experiences are supplemented by rewarding cocurricular programs that rival any in New Jersey. During
the year, musicals, art exhibits, robotics competitions, championship athletics teams, and much more are part of the every-day fabric of our educational organization. Madison School District is often cited in statewide and national rankings, in areas within and outside the classroom. The high school student body includes students from adjacent Harding Township (New Vernon) through a receiving relationship, as the Harding schools operate grades K-8. In addition to the public schools, Madison has private nursery schools, Montessori preschools and kindergartens, and an award-winning parochial elementary school, St. Vincent Martyr School (www.rosenet.org/svm). Other educational offerings are available through the Adult School of Madison, Chatham and Florham Park and the Madison Public Library (www.rosenet.org/library), via a partnership in which Drew University faculty teach adult “mini courses” at the library. Michael A. Rossi, Jr., Ph.D. is the Superintendent of the Madison Public Schools.
