Mayor's Office


Welcome to the virtual Mayor’s Office. I am honored and privileged to serve as your 50th Mayor and look forward to working each day to improve our great city. Lorain holds much potential for the future, and I believe that confronting our challenges with a solutions-based, data driven approach is essential in order for our full potential to be realized. Please take some time to take a look around my page as well as the rest of the website to learn about the city’s departments and their respective services.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns or requests for service, please do not hesitate to contact my office through the Mayor’s Action Center. My staff and I look forward to serving you and Lorain as we move the city forward in the 21st century.
