Meet The Mayor

Welcome to the Village of Clinton. As I begin my second term in office, I am excited to be able to spend four more years serving the community that has been so kind to my wife, Carol and me. Carol and I have lived in the Village of Clinton for over 24 years. We raised our two children in the Village and have enjoyed the rural setting, yet also being close to the many attractions that Northeastern Ohio has to offer. My background is in business and finance. This has allowed me to understand the needs and challenges of potential business owners to the Village of Clinton. The Village and its residents are extremely proud of its rich history. It was founded in 1816 and this year marks our 200th Anniversary. We have many community organizations within the Village whose members donate countless hours, as well as, resources to keep our community vibrant and beautiful. Please be sure to travel our towpath trail, use our parks, connect with the fine ladies and gentlemen of the Historical Society, and visit the Ohio Veterans Memorial Park. I hope if we cross paths in the near future, you introduce yourself and tell me what is on your mind. I enjoy pleasant conversation and people willing to help our Village thrive.
