Lake County Commissioner Kevin Malecek
At Your Service
Since his years growing up in Eastlake and Willoughby Hills, Kevin has always had an interest in serving and bettering our community. As a teenager, he joined the steering committee to establish the first homeless shelter in Lake County, which has developed into Project Hope for the Homeless, by providing hygiene kits for those staying at the shelter. After earning a bachelor's and master's degree, Kevin decided to give back even further to our community by running for City Council, serving on the Laketran Board of Trustees, and volunteering his time through organizations like the United Way of Lake County and the Lions Club.
As a Councilman, Kevin protected property values by engineering a new zoning code, fighting for green space over airport runway expansion, and ensuring balanced and healthy budgets. He showed leadership by working across the aisle - and was elected Council President twice by a unanimous bipartisan group of his council colleagues.
Kevin worked for our seniors, partnering to introduce legislation to create a Senior Center. As a non-profit executive in Mentor, Kevin also worked to give back to our Veterans and those on active duty by working with local businesses to create a Veterans discount program that now operates countywide.
Kevin has always aimed to empower others to find their own opportunities. As a Director of the world-renown MBA program at Case Western Reserve University, he assisted hundreds of students in pursuing their dream of higher education and new career opportunities.
