Who Is Steve Dondley?

I am the owner and founder of Prometheus Labor Communications, a US Navy submarine veteran and former labor organizer for UFCW Local 1459 in Springfield, MA. I've had an early interest in computers and programming since childhood and a fascination with mass communication which I developed during my post secondary education at Grossmont Community College in San Diego and UMass. I combined these passions and began developing websites for labor unions in in the late 90s. I launched my company, Prometheus, in 2005.

I served a two-year term as a city councilor in the city of Westfield, MA from 2016 to 2018. I am currently focused on the development of the UnionConnect mobile app platform my company developed for labor unions among many other projects.

I enjoy computing. I'm like the guy in garage spending all day spending time on his time woodworking projects building chess boards and stools.
