INSIDE THE McGEHEE HOUSEHOLD
My wife, Marie, our talented daughter, Madison and I have been residents of Maplewood since 2013. We have a dog too, Sunshine, a labradoodle. Originally from the Hyde Park section of Chicago, IL, I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelors in Business Administration in Accounting and received my MBA from the University of Wisconsin Graduate School of Business. I am an analytical marketer with experience directing the strategic and day-to-day operations for Digital companies with accountability for generating revenue, engagement while managing expenses.
Marie is a Director of Corporate Communications at a Fortune 100 Company where she is responsible for promoting technologies that are changing how we live, work and play. She is also an active volunteer for several non-profit organizations in Maplewood and Essex County area.
FRANK AND MAPLEWOOD
After relocating to Maplewood, I became immediately involved in the community. I participated in numerous PTA events from the Tuscan Fair to the Spring Fling at Tuscan. I became a regular on “the blacktop“ before joining the executive PTA board as committee co-chair, responsible for recruiting and assisting all committee chairs with the various school events held throughout the year. I also proactively reached out to our local civic leaders expressing my interest to serve on various community boards and attended numerous meetings. As a member of the Maplewood Library Foundation, I co-launched a new fundraising event, Kids Jamboree, to assist with the board’s aim of subsidizing the costs of materials or programs outside the scope of the library’s annual budget to support our wonderful libraries. While serving as a Trustee with the South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race, I championed an organizational construct initiative to help reposition the organization for continued success in our community. After being elected in 2016, I became chair of the Board of Health and Recreation and Human Services Committee. I serve as a steering member of the Fire Department Shared Services Committee. I also serve as a member of the Finance Committee, Public Safety Committee, Engineering, Public Works & Planning Committee, and Board of School Estimate. Finally, I am the liaison for the Green Team, Sustainability Committee and Youth Net.
