Troy Mayor Patrick Madden - 11/9



Patrick Madden was elected Mayor of the City of Troy on November 3, 2015. He’ll provide a recap of his first year in office and a look at Troy’s future at the Albany Roundtable luncheon on Wednesday, November 9 at the National Register-listed University Club, 141 Washington Avenue at Dove Street in Albany. The meeting is open to the public.

Madden’s mayoral campaign sought to strengthen the city’s neighborhoods, confront the challenge of urban blight, improve fiscal oversight of city finances, and expand economic opportunity. Previously, Mayor Madden served for 30 years as Executive Director of the Troy Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (TRIP), a community development corporation with a strong commitment to providing a path to home ownership through financial management counseling and educational programing, helping thousands of families purchase their first home.

Born and raised in the City of Troy, Madden graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science from SUNY Albany, and earned his J.D. at Albany Law School. He has previously served as a board member for numerous community organizations, including Rensselaer County ARC, the Neighborhood Risk Management Corporation, Joseph’s House and Shelter, Troy Community Land Bank, and the Rensselaer County Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness.

The cost for the luncheon is $20, which may be paid at the door. The Roundtable also offers its guests the option of paying in advance with a credit card at www.albanyroundtable.blogspot.com. The University Club will serve a hot and cold buffet from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m., with the program commencing at 12:30.
