About Patrick Roff

Bradenton City Councilman - Ward 3

Patrick Roff and his family, wife Barbara and daughter Emily, purchased their current Bradenton residence in 1988. As a community leader, Patrick created and organized the Historic Wares Creek Neighborhood which has become one of Bradenton's leading examples of urban renewal. He is best known for his successful commitment to the Wares Creek Flood Control Project, Manatee County's largest storm water endeavor.

Patrick and Barbara are a happily married couple of 32 years. Their daughter Emily graduated with honors from MHS, the USF School of Music, and the USF School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. She is currently pursuing a graduate degree at the University of Texas at Dallas in Speech Pathology.

Patrick led his family to a dedicated life of service. His wife, Barbara, is a 28 year Manatee County teacher and for the past eight years, Manatee High School's library media specialist. Emily served her church from second grade through college, the same church where Patrick served on the Parish Council and Finance Committees and as the Capital Campaign Director.

Prior to election, Patrick owned and operated a successful family aboriculture business in the city of Bradenton for 20 years.

As the City Councilman of Ward 3, Patrick has guided the city through the great recession while maintaining services and public safety. Patrick has been at the forefront of the renaissance that has made Bradenton a world-wide destination.
