Ward 1 Councilmember: Tom Madigan
Current Term: January 2018 – January 2022
My wife and I chose Roeland Park for our home in 1985. We raised our children here and our grandchildren attended preschool at Roeland Park Community Center. We are now retired and enjoy taking our great grandsons to the Aquatic Center and City Parks.
I have a wide-ranging background in investigation, communication, and negotiations.
I am U.S. Army veteran and I have been engaged in public service for our city on a number of levels. I have served as Chairperson of Board of Zoning Appeals, Neighbor to Neighbor Strategic Planning, and Ad-Hoc Branding Committee. I will continue to be an active member of the Neighborhood Watch Captains.
One of my top priorities is the implementation of a convenient, 21st century, two-way communication application for our citizens. open discourse is good for our democracy.
