Madeline Kellner for City Council

Meet Madeline Kellner

Photo of Madeline with family For the past 4 years, I have served on the Novato City Council, this year as Mayor, during the most challenging of times. I have worked hard to maintain the quality of life in our community while still keeping the city’s budget within balance. We’ve protected senior services, maintained our police force to keep our streets safe, fixed our city hall and taken action to widen the Novato Narrows.

Both Bay Area natives, my husband Clint and I moved to Novato 18 years ago to raise our two children, Laurel and Mark, now 29 and 25. We were attracted to Novato because of the quality of life the community offered and its proximity to employment and recreation.

For over 30 years, I have worked in the health and human services field, starting as a nutritionist and advancing to senior health executive roles. I have overseen the delivery of vital services to health plan and community members as a hospital administrator at Kaiser Permanente and as the Health Services Director for Marin County. Currently, as Executive Director of the In-Home Supportive Services Public Authority of Marin, I serve low-income elderly and disabled residents of Marin who require in-home care services in order to remain safely in their homes.

As the economy improves, I am committed to working with Novato residents to continue making our community a great place to live. I will work to attract new business downtown, create stronger partnerships with local agencies and ensure that we protect the quality of life and small town feel that we love about Novato.

With your vote, we can continue the work we have begun. Thank you for your support!
