Business Owner Culotta Files for Mayor Seat

105

Local small business owner and entrepreneur, Todd Culotta, has announced his bid to run for Mayor of Milford. Mr. Culotta owns and operates Bay Pro Contracting, which focuses on restaurant buildouts and residential remodeling and renovations.

“We are on the cusp of great things here in Milford. New businesses, a new hospital, a new long-term care facility, and an influx of new residents offer the potential to take Milford to the next level,” said Mr. Culotta. “I look forward to leveraging my life and career experience to lead Milford in maximizing that potential through effective growth strategies and infrastructure support.”

Mr. Culotta is a member of the Milford Lions Club, a board member of the Milford Museum and the Milford Historical Society, and a past member of the Milford Historic Preservation Group where he helped raise money to restore historic properties in Milford. He and his wife also serve on the planning committee for the annual Roaring 20s party.

For more than 15 years, Mr. Culotta had a successful career in technology sales and project management. He started his career traveling the country building the internet backbone for companies such as Verizon Business, MCI WorldCom, and Level 3 Communications. He also managed high traffic web sites of well-known sports entities for IMG Media. Through this experience, Mr. Culotta has developed a keen understanding of how technology and innovation can help businesses, government, and localities increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs.

Mr. Culotta is a 1991 graduate of Milford High School. He holds an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management and a B.A. in Communications from California University of Pennsylvania. Mr. Culotta has also served in the United States Marine Corps.

Several years ago, Mr. Culotta moved back to Milford with his wife, Kalle, who is Vice President of Business Development for a Federal consulting company based out of Washington, D.C. Together, they purchased and remodeled a historic home in downtown Milford.

“Having grown up in Milford, moving elsewhere for college and career, then having the opportunity to come back, I’ve gained important perspective,” said Mr. Culotta. “There is no better time to be a resident of Milford and I’m excited to work with city leaders, businesses, and law enforcement to support the continued growth of the thriving Milford community.”
