Meet Your New Russell Mayor: Curt Mader

Curtis MaderCurt Mader, a local greenhouse operator, knows all about plant growth, but starting April 16, Mader will begin trying to help Russell grow as he will take office as the city's next mayor.

Mader, owner and operator of Marvin's Gardens Greenhouse of Russell, won election to the City of Russell Mayoral seat in the April 2 election after beating incumbent Carol Dawson by just a tick less than 50 votes.

An outspoken member of the public at recent Russell City Council meetings, Mader says he feels Russell is heading in the right direction, but so much more needs to be done to help Russell grow and improve.

Mader will begin his time as Russell Mayor after taking the oath of office at the April regular monthly meeting of the Russell City Council on April 16 at 4:30 PM.
