Michael Keenan’s career in public service began in 1983 when he was first elected as a Washington Township Trustee – a position he held for two decades before being elected to Dublin City Council in 2003.
He is most honored to have worked on collaborative efforts to grow and expand the Washington Township Fire Department and preserve parkland with the purchase of the property for Darree Fields, Ted Kaltenbach Park and Homestead Park. As a Dublin City Council member, he helped lead the charge for a ban on texting while driving, which strengthened the City’s distracted-driving law.
He was appointed by Gov. John Kasich to the Ohio Air Quality Development Authority and currently serves as its chairman, and was appointed by Ohio Speaker of the House William Batchelder to the Ohio Public Works Commission, which he also serves as chairman. In June 2015, Governor Kasich appointed him as local government representative to the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board. Keenan is past president of the board of the Dublin Arts Council, and served six years as a board member and secretary for the Ohio Township Risk Management Authority.
Keenan is president of The Keenan Agency, which is located in Dublin and provides personal, commercial, life and health insurance to individuals and businesses. He holds a bachelor’s of science degree from The Ohio State University and earned the designation Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter in 2002.
Keenan and his wife Jill are the parents of three children, Ryan, Kelley and Katelin, and reside in Coventry Woods.
