Luis "Rolan" Maldonado Rodríguez (born June 27, 1954) is a Puerto Rican politician and the current mayor of Ciales. Maldonado is affiliated with the New Progressive Party (PNP) and he previously had served as mayor from 2005 to 2013.
Luis Maldonado Rodríguez was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, on June 27, 1954 to Raúl Maldonado de León and Juanita Rodríguez Espinosa. He is the third of four children.
Maldonado was raised in Barriada Víctor Rojas in Arecibo. He graduated from Antonio Luchetti High School with a vocational curse in woodwork.
After graduating from high school, Maldonado began working as an interior designer for five years.
In 1978, Maldonado began working for the Municipality of Arecibo, as Coordinator of Transport and Equipment. After that, he became interim director of the Municipal Hospital, under the administration of then-Mayor José A. Cedeño. He also served as aide of the interim Mayor Rafael Enrique Negrón Tavarez.
In 1984, Maldonado returns to work as interior designer.
In 1991, Maldonado decided to run for the House of Representatives of Puerto Rico representing District 13. He was elected at the 1992 general election. During his first term, Maldonado presided the Commission of Development of the Central Region.
Maldonado was reelected in 2008, obtaining 56.12% of the votes. However, he was defeated by Juan José Rodríguez Pérez (from the PPD) at the 2012 general election. Maldonado's defeat was by only 83 votes. According to an analysis of El Nuevo Día, some of the factors that could've led to Maldonado's defeat were the unemployment and the economic deficit of the city. In the 2016 general election, he won again for the position of mayor. 
Maldonado has been married to María Santiago de Jesús since 1977. They have two children together: Luis and Erika.
