Getting to know you: Matoaca District Supervisor Kevin Carroll

Matoaca District Supervisor Kevin Carroll

Matoaca District Supervisor Kevin Carroll

Kevin Carroll was re-elected last November for a second four-year term on the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors. 

You can read his official county bio here.

Enjoy getting to know Kevin a little better in this Q&A with Chesterfield's Department of Constituent and Media Services:

A word you’d use to describe yourself

Friendly

What was your first job? 

I started a job at 14 fixing up houses for the elderly and low-income people in Rhode Island. 

What do you like to do in your spare time for fun/entertainment/relaxation? 

Spending time with my wife, playing golf, fishing, hunting and enjoying the company of my friends and family.

What’s your perfect meal? 

Any meal I get to have with my wife

What’s the best piece of advice someone has given you? 

Treat people the way you would like to be treated. Try not to judge others, for you do not know what burdens them in life.

Best book you’ve ever read? 

The best book I ever have read is the Bible. I have read many others, but their lessons were not the lessons of life.

What’s one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? 

Before I was a police officer, I was a volunteer firefighter in Rhode Island, and I lived at the station for 5 years until I moved here to become a police officer in 1986. While living at the station, I became an Emergency Medical Technician and graduated from the Rhode Island State Fire Academy. I was mentored at the station by many people who taught me construction skills, general carpentry, electrical wiring, and general plumbing. In truth, the best lesson the experience taught me is to dedicate yourself to the task at hand, have a strong work ethic and treat people with respect.    

What motivates you to serve others? 

My mother instilled in me as a child my faith in God and I have lived my life in service of others. I have always believed that what I was doing is what God meant for me to do. I am motivated by solving problems for others and making people smile.

What are your priorities for the next four years on the board? 

We must continue to provide strong public safety. A safe community is the foundation for all other things that are important in society. I look forward to the completion of the new schools in western Matoaca and providing an excellent learning environment for our students to learn and grow in. The county needs to continue to improve the infrastructure in the Matoaca District, including repairing and repaving roads.  

How would you define success in your district and the county overall? 

In the last four years, we have replaced bridges so people are no longer trapped in their homes when it rains. We have found funding for road network improvements, four new schools, a new western Matoaca police station and library. The Ettrick-Matoaca Library will see a necessary expansion and Ettrick fire station 12 will be rebuilt at a new location. We continue to attract large and small businesses, which provide job opportunities for the almost 5,000 students we graduate each year from our schools. I look forward to continuing to solve people’s problems and ensure that Chesterfield County continues to be a fantastic place to live, work and raise a family.
