As the longest-serving Mayor of Independence, I am very proud of this community, our people, schools, and businesses.

Independence is the “Heart of Cuyahoga County” and the region. We are centrally located at the junction of Interstates 480 and 77. A 15-minute ride connects you to Downtown Cleveland, the east and west suburbs of Cuyahoga County, and Akron-Summit County.

If you are considering a new residence, a location for your business, or need information that is not available on our website, please contact me.
