Alder Christian Albouras, who represents District 20 on Madison’s west side, announced his resignation from the Madison Common Council on Monday.
“It is bittersweet to share that our family will be moving out of the Meadowood Neighborhood and out of District 20. This will necessitate my resignation as alder of District 20 on the Madison Common Council on May 20th, 2022,” said Alder Albouras in a statement. “Serving on the council and advocating for the best interest of District 20 residents has been one of the most rewarding experiences during my career. I want to share my appreciation to the alders who will continue to serve on the council, dedicate their time, and focus on the needs of residents in Madison.
“My wife and I will continue to be engaged with residents to support the city and region, and ensure that greater Madison is a place where everyone can thrive,” Albouras added.
Albouras was elected to the Common Council in April 2019 and re-elected in April 2021. He has served on the Community Development Block Grant Committee, Plan Commission, Urban Design Commission, City-County Liaison Committee, Ad Hoc Landmarks Ordinance Review Committee, Economic Development Committee, Madison Police Department Policy and Procedure Review Ad Hoc Committee, Public Safety Review Committee, and Vending Oversight Committee.
Albouras’s resignation is effective Friday, May 20, at noon. The process to fill the vacancy will begin soon, according to a press release from the City of Madison, and a timeline will be made available in the near future.
