Wroblewski in race for District 1, Madison City Council

MADISON – Maura Wroblewski is seeking re-election to Madison City Council to represent District 1.

“During the last four years, we have brought wonderful new businesses to our community. From the most recent, Culvers, to one of our city’s most exciting — the Rocket City Trash Pandas,” Wroblewski said. “The organization has exceeded $2 million in merchandising sales and has been warmly received by our residents.”

Wroblewski said Toyota Field is a multipurpose venue that can host a 600-person sit-down dinner for the city’s Connect event, businesses can hold annual conventions, and families can host reunions, receptions and parties. “Town Madison is an ever evolving, continuing work in progress.”

“We (have begun) to turn Three Springs juvenile detention facility into a state-of-the-art community center that will serve all ages,” Wroblewski said.

Greenway space has increased with Mill Creek Greenway. “Our quality of life in Madison is moving in the right direction,” Wroblewski said.

Her number-1 campaign goal nears completion with the Wall Triana multi-use path. This economic development project has provided a safe walkway to IGA, Kroger, West Madison Elementary School and Madison Public Library, she said. Parents can see their children safely walk or bike to the new Midtown Elementary School. “I cannot thank Mayor Finley enough because this project would not have happened without his support and leadership,” she said.

Road construction has widened Brown’s Ferry Road, Sullivan Street and soon Hughes Road. For a new traffic light, Balch and Gillespie roads will undergo major modifications to the intersection; Wroblewski hopes these improvements will start in 2020.

Wroblewski opposed the Kyser development because of rezoning, FAA funding dollars and school overcrowding, but she does support growth of retail and commercial developments.

Wroblewski also is pleased with renovation of Hughes Plaza and openings of Culver’s on Wall Triana; Bojangles, Madison Boulevard; Waffle House, County Line Road; and Tom Brown’s Restaurant on U.S. 72.

Her husband Ron retired from Department of Defense and works part time at Asbury United Methodist Church. Maura’s son Zach and his wife Megan live in Sandy Springs, Ga.; he instructs AP/IB social studies and soccer; she is a registered nurse. Maura’s daughter Sarah is a Senior Airman in U.S. Air Force.

District 1 residents will vote on Aug. 25 at Faith Lutheran Church.
