Bryan Jensen for Avon mayor
Jensen, 53, is currently serving his fourth-term on City Council and has served multiple terms on the city’s planning and safety service commissions.
Apart from his political duties, Jensen is owner and president of Pinehaven Greenhouses.
Jensen received his degree in business management and general business from West Liberty State College, W.Va.
He also is a member of the French Creek Merchants Association, Avon Athletic Boosters, coach of Avon youth soccer and president of the Greater Cleveland Flowers Growers Association.
Most recently, Jensen earned Smith’s support who said he would do an excellent job as Avon’s next mayor.
If elected, Jensen said he hopes to continue developing commercial and industrial growth to build the city’s tax base, improve traffic flow through road improvements, acquire more park land and implement an outdoor swimming pool using no additional tax increase to fund it.
As a successful growing community, Jensen said Avon needs an experienced leader with a passion for the city.
“I have the most experience of any candidate,” he said. “I have run a successful local business for 28 years, giving back to the community through that business and also donating time to local activities and events,” Jensen said. “My goal is to build upon our past with a keen eye to the future. I will work hard every day to keep Avon moving in the right direction.”
