About Tom

Tom Goldenberg grew up in West Haven and was raised by local public school teachers. Tom was raised in a multi-faith and diverse community which gave him an appreciation for people from all walks of life. Tom moved to New Haven as a young adult and has been a part of the New Haven community for most of his life.

For nine years, Tom taught and volunteered in South India, including helping rebuild villages devastated from the 2004 Asian Tsunami. The experience imprinted on Tom the value of “seva,” or selfless service, something that informs his approach to governance.

For the last several years, Tom has worked with other cities and states on issues that confront New Haven as challenges – education, housing, and economic development. 

Having spent time in New Haven as a child, young adult, and now raising a family, Tom is passionate about the city and excited to apply his professional experience to better the lives of New Haven residents.
