Jon Poda officially filed his petitions on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 as a Democratic candidate for Barberton Municipal Clerk of Courts. 

Poda’s experience includes more than 20 years as a successful business owner, serving as a Summit County Council At-large member and currently as a Director of the Board of Revision for the Summit County Fiscal Office.

Jon cited his abilities to “do more with less” when county budgets declined and he initiated more cost-effective procedures while he was a member of County Council and as a director of two different county departments.  As Council President in 2010, Jon cosponsored legislation to keep Bridgestone-Firestone and Goodyear in our area, retaining thousands of jobs and cosponsored legislation for the Austen BioInnovation Institute, boosting economic growth and Akron’s Biomedical Corridor.

Jon also led the way in creating the Summit County Methamphetamine Property Awareness Task Force to provide information to potential homeowners and renters regarding property affected by meth labs. He also supported the construction of the new Summit County Veterans Service Commission Center.

“In addition to authoring legislation that became law, I have a history of promoting consumer protection issues and streamlining office procedures," Poda said. "I have experience with record retention, accounting procedures and collection of fees. The duties of the Clerk are administrative and incorporate the business side of the Court process, which is where my strengths are.”

“I believe my strong business background and work ethic, as well as being fiscally responsible while serving the citizens of Summit County in various capacities, will allow me to lead a strong team as Barberton Municipal Clerk of Court,” he added.

Jon and his wife Marjorie reside in Green; they have three children and four grandchildren.

The Barberton Municipal Court District includes the communities of Barberton, Clinton, Copley Township, Coventry Township, Green, New Franklin and Norton.
