Adam Roof – Ward 8 Candidate

Adam Roof - Ward 8 City Councilor Candidate

I’ve called Burlington home since 2007 and have dedicated the past decade making our community a better place to live, work, learn, and play.

When I was first elected in 2015, I was the first City Councilor to represent Ward 8, an area in Burlington that includes neighborhoods surrounding the University of Vermont and much of the campus itself. During my first term, I served as Chair of the Community Development and Neighborhood Revitalization Committee and the Public Safety Committee. I also served on the Institutions Committee, Human Resources Committee, as well as a host of ad hoc committees and working groups. I served as a Council representative on the Parallel Justice Commission, Vehicle for Hire Licensing Board, and the UVM Community Coalition.

In a time when the divisive culture in our politics is becoming unbearable to so many, I will run a positive, issue-based campaign focused on forming coalitions built upon common ground. I believe now more than ever, that Burlington should come together around policies that unite us and be welcoming to a diversity of thought in our community dialogue.

I’m humbly seeking re-election this coming Town Meeting Day on March 6, 2018.
