Joseph Macaluso

City Council & Mayor
Title: City Council, District 5
Councilman Dr. Joseph Macaluso D5

My wife and I have been residents of Boerne since 2005 and have regularly visited the area since the mid-80s. Boerne is a great place to live and a wonderful community. Preserving our quality of life is the challenge for us all and will be my main focus.

Renée and I married in 1973 and have three grown daughters, one of whom lives in Boerne with her family. I am the proud grandfather of five. We are members of St. Peter the Apostle Church here in Boerne.

We moved to Boerne from New Orleans where I spent most of my career as a urologic surgeon. We are also former restaurant and business owners. Through my professional years, I have developed much experience in business, finance and dealing with large entities. These include state and federal agencies in roles with medical societies and universities. During that time, I also worked extensively with profit and nonprofit entities. Retired from clinical practice, I currently advise startup companies in the medical field.

My goal on our City Council has been to maintain the integrity of Boerne, and keep Boerne as Boerne, the gateway to the Hill Country. Low-impact, low-density, unique, clean and green development are our goals. Transparency in the actions of local government should always be a priority. We are a historic Hill Country community and should embrace the future by seeking management and growth practices that add to the overall health, safety, and quality of life for our residents.
