Adam Roof - City Councilor - Ward 7

Burlington has been my home since 2007. Ever since I then, I’ve strived to make our community a better place to live, work, learn, and play.

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

There are many issues we deal with in the City Council. Some require a longer, ongoing commitment in order to make substantial improvements in peoples lives and in our community.

These are a few of the long term solutions I’m working on:

  • Sexual Assault Prevention Initiative
  • The Neighborhood Project
  • Supporting the Homeless
  • Fostering Innovation
  • Promoting Involvement in the Democratic Process
  • Defense of Public Discourse

I believe that Burlington should come together around policies that unite us and be welcoming to a diversity of thought in our community.
