Rockefeller Faces - Joe Colangelo

Joe Colangelo, MPA ‘06

Assistant Town Manager
Middlebury, Vermont

“The key for me at Rockefeller was the program’s focus on real-world experience.  I started my municipal management career in Barre, Vermont as a full-time local government management intern while I finished my MPA at Rockefeller. Through connections made during my internship, I was hired as the Assistant Town Manager in Middlebury, Vermont. Thanks to the classes in financial management and municipal debt finance I took at Rockefeller, I had the skills necessary to step into the Middlebury position and successfully manage a $10 million budget starting on Day One.”
