Keith Furman was appointed in August to the seat previously held by Mark Clear. If elected for a full term, Keith will continue ensuring residents’ voices are heard through extensive outreach. He will focus on strategies to protect against the impact of flooding, strengthen our transportation infrastructure and ensure that Madison is fair and equitable for all residents.
Keith and his wife Sandi, a Wisconsin native, have lived in Madison for more than five and a half years in the Spring Harbor Neighborhood. He is a technology professional who most recently served as chief technology and chief strategy officer for a health care technology company. After helping the company grow from a start-up to a thriving company, Keith sold his ownership stake and left the company to focus more directly on serving his community.
Prior to moving to Madison in 2013, the Furmans lived in Hoboken, NJ, where he served as chairman of the Hoboken Planning Board. In that position, he helped facilitate the implementation of many sound city planning initiatives, including a reexamination of Hoboken’s master plan for Zoning and Development.
