Ross joined the TART board in March 2016. He has been a frequent user of the VASA Pathway and TART Trail network ever since moving to Traverse City in 2009. He has helped organize the Smart Commute Week team at his law firm (Olson, Bzdok & Howard PC) since 2010 where he is an environmental and land-use attorney. Along with his wife, Kate Madigan, and their two boys, Ross can frequently be found biking around town or on our local trails, exploring forests, rivers and sand dunes, playing and coaching soccer, and trying to get faster as a triathlete. Ross also volunteers with the local legal aid clinic, as Board Member with Conflict Resolution Services and as a Council Member of the Environmental Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan.
