Adam is one of the only openly LGBTQ members of the Dallas City Council
Representing District 2, Adam Medrano was elected to the Dallas City Council in June 2013. For more than ten years, Medrano has dedicated his personal and professional time to help the community, especially its youth.
A lifelong resident of District 2, Councilmember Medrano attended Dallas Independent School District schools. He attended Sam Houston Elementary School and the former L.L. Hotchkiss Montessori Academy and graduated from Hillcrest High School. He graduated from the University of North Texas with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry.
Mr. Medrano has a proven record of achievement and accomplishment on the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees. First elected in 2006, the youngest person ever elected to the Dallas ISD School Board, he brought a fresh perspective to the Dallas School Board. His leadership for reform earned him the respect of his colleagues. In 2007, Mr. Medrano was elected to serve as the Board’s First Vice-President in a unanimous vote. He was elected three separate times to serve as President of the School Board. During his tenure as a school board trustee, all of the school in District 8, which he represented, improved to a passing rate.
His position as a Supervisor IV with the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department allowed Mr. Medrano to play a significant role in the organization and planning of educational and sports activity programs for the city’s youth.
Councilmember Medrano volunteers his time to public service projects.
