City of Pickerington


"It’s an honor to serve as the Mayor of Pickerington. I love this City and have called it home since I was a child. My dad still lives here and my wife Jane and I knew this is where we wanted to stay and raise our three children: Logan, Mallory and Molly.

I first became Mayor in 1992 and served two terms before moving on to serve with the Pickerington Local Schools Board of Education. I was re-elected to the Mayor’s office in 2011, 2015, 2019 and again in 2023. I appreciate you, the voters, placing your confidence in me to do the job and I work very hard to maintain your trust.

One of the things that’s most important to me is that our thriving community maintain its small town charm. I’m accessible and my office is always open. If you have a question, I will do my best to answer it. My executive assistant is Tammy Sawyer and she can be reached by calling 614-837-3974. We enjoy hearing from you.
