Kevin Madok announced today that he has filed as a candidate for the office occupied by Amy Heavilin. The election is in 2016.

“I’m running to restore competence and accountability to the Clerk’s Office,” said Madok.

Currently, Madok serves Monroe County as Senior Director of Strategic Planning. Prior to Heavilin’s arrival, Madok worked for eight years in the Clerk’s Office under long-time Clerk of Court Danny Kolhage.

“During my years in the Clerk’s office, Danny Kolhage led a professional, respectful and hard-working team. Staff turnover was minimal, because we shared pride in our work and in our reputations. The Clerk’s office was a special place to work. I will restore that,” said Madok.

In his current role with the County, Madok said he has saved the taxpayers in excess of $30 million by searching out innovative financing methods to fund the County’s capital projects. “I plan to carry these tax-saving efforts back to the Clerk’s office to restore fiscal discipline and the efficient use of taxpayer dollars.”

Madok was recently appointed by the Governor to the Board of Trustees of Florida Keys Community College. In addition, Madok’s record of community service includes four years as Chair of the Board of Governors of the Monroe County Fire and Ambulance District, Treasurer and Board member of the Key West Montessori Charter School, Chair of the Florida Keys chapter of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Vice President of the Southernmost Republican Club, and membership in the Key West Rotary Club. He served on the City of Layton Council and is a graduate of Leadership Monroe Class XXI.

Kevin Madok earned an Accounting degree with a Computer Science minor from the University of San Diego and an MBA in Finance from the University of Southern California.   He became a CPA 25 years ago while working at KPMG and is currently licensed to practice in the States of Florida and California.   Kevin resides on Big Pine Key with his wife of 17 years, Katrina, a teacher of the gifted program at Gerald Adams Elementary School. He is a member of St. Peter Church.
