“I would encourage all our neighbors and friends to engage in open public dialogue what will keep Madison Village a great place to live, work, or retire. Your voice in our government process is important in keeping the process both transparent and honest. Stop in to see me anytime… I’ll leave the light on for you.” Ken Takacs
