McFarland Village President Carolyn Clow announces her run for re-election. In her first term, President Clow has led the village through the planning of McFarland’s Carbon Net Zero Public Safety Center, creating a trustee handbook, and updating the employee handbook.
Clow has been advocating for McFarland while serving as Vice President of the Dane County Cities and Villages Association, as a member of the Citizen Advisory Board of the Greater Madison Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization, and the Yahara Compact 3.0 Steering Committee sponsored by the Clean Lakes Alliance.
Clow remains steadfast in the priorities she laid out during her first term in office – economic and community development; fostering diversity; and improving environmental sustainability. In the next two years she would like to focus on a McFarland Community Center, east side growth plan, solar projects in the community, and increase equity and inclusion throughout village government.
“McFarland is in a period of growth and transition,” Clow said. “We need to support growth in the Village and to uphold our responsibilities to the planet and to the people who live here now and those who will live here in the future.”
President Clow is currently the Chair of the Plan Commission, a member of the Senior Outreach committee, and the Public Works/Public Utilities Committee. As a trustee, she previously served on the Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources; Finance; Public Safety; and Ad Hoc Facilities Committees. Clow has lived in McFarland since 2005.
