Travis Radina

Ann Arbor City Council, Ward 3

Travis will continue to be an important voice for equality on the Ann Arbor City Council!


Since first being elected to City Council in 2020, Travis Radina has consistently delivered upon the progressive promises he made to Ann Arbor — sponsoring over 100 ordinances and resolutions to improve his Community.

He is a leader on human rights, championing a successful amendment to Ann Arbor’s non-discrimination ordinance to outlaw race-based hair discrimination, securing new investments in City equity initiatives, and winning approval of a ban on anti-LGBTQ conversion therapy. He has also been at the forefront of efforts to honor Ann Arbor’s role in LGBTQ history and celebrate LGBTQ Trailblazers, like Kathy Kozachenko, Nancy Wechsler & Jerry DeGrieck.

He supported investment in new affordable housing, and voted for responsible growth to increase Ann Arbor’s housing supply. He led the charge to expand tenants’ rights — spearheading the creation of Michigan’s first municipal Renters Commission, establishing a right-to-renew for renters to prevent unjust evictions, and fighting for rent transparency that will end rental junk fees. He supported historic investments in the City’s sustainability work to make progress toward our climate goals, and worked to hold utilities accountable for widespread outages and infrastructure failures.

Travis has consistently led efforts to improve transparency and accountability — to ensure equal opportunity for minority & women-owned businesses in contracting and procurement, to establish public-facing performance dashboards to daylight progress toward our goals, to establish clear and transparent processes for the sale of City property, and to hold former Council colleagues accountable for misconduct.

In 2022, Travis was unanimously elected to serve as first openly-gay Mayor Pro Tem in over two decades, chosen by his colleagues to help lead the most diverse City Council in Ann Arbor’s history.

Prior to his election to City Council, Travis served as President of the Jim Toy Community Center — Washtenaw County’s LGBTQ Resource Center — and as LGBTQ Liaison to the Mayor of Ann Arbor.
