Gary Sorace - Council person - At-Large

Gary was appointed to City Council in December, 2005 as an At-Large representative, and has since won three re-elections. His goal has always been to represent the voters of Twinsburg in a fair and honest manner. He believes that we must be financially sound as a City, while working to keep our City's historic charm. It is important that we keep our positive relationships with our neighboring communities, as we continue grow and to share services and ideas.

He lives on Liberty Road with his wife, Gloria. His three children, Melissa (Zenz), Brian & Joe all graduated from Twinsburg Schools. He can be contacted by phone at (330) 487-5798 or by email at gsorace@twinsburg.oh.us.
