Jonathan M. Bydlak

Founder and president, Coalition to Reduce Spending

A pioneer in the field of political fundraising, Bydlak got his start in politics as director of fundraising on Ron Paul’s 2008 Presidential campaign, where he oversaw a fundraising operation that raised more than $35 million, the majority of which was online via the application of social media.

With a background in economics, Bydlak founded the Coalition to Reduce Spending and the Institute for Spending Reform in 2012 to spread awareness about the need for responsible fiscal policy and balanced budgets.

A former hedge fund investment analyst, he is originally from Massachusetts and holds an A.B. in economics with minors in finance and political economy from Princeton University.
