MADLE NEW CHAMBER PRESIDENT
Town mechanic embraces new role
WITH his house sitting on the edge of the highway, Troy Madle has sure seen a lot come and go through Childers – but one thing has always stayed the same.
“I love Childers,” Mr Madle said.
The township holds more than 100 years of family history for Mr Madle who you may know as the face behind the name Madle’s Mechanics.
But it’s not the only hat Mr Madle will wear around Childers as he embraces his new role as the Childers Chamber of Commerce president.
And while he’s got big ideas for the small town, he said they meant nothing without the support of his community.
“I’ve got ideas, but I can only state them,” Mr Madle said.
He viewed his new job as more of a listening role.
“That’s the important thing to do, to listen,” he said.
“You’re got to go with the majority of the committee and the town.”
And since taking on his new title just last week, Mr Madle has already hosted his first meeting, chatted with members of the community and gathered a list of projects he’d like to move on.
