Dan Zegarac for Avon mayor
Zegarac, 57, is the currently the president of Avon’s City Council serving his second-term.
He previously served as a member of the city’s charter review commission, chairman of the Service and Economic Development Committee, Parks and Recreation Commission and the Legal Committee.
Prior to serving the city, Zegarac was a sales/business manager with the Ganley Auto Group in Cleveland and Aurora for nearly eight years.
Zegarac is a graduate of Avon High School. He also attended Kent State University.
He is a member of St. Mary Church, Knights of Columbus 3269, Avon VFW Post 7035, Avon High School Athletic Hall of Fame Selection Committee and Avon Blended Class Reunion Committee. He also has coached several youth sports groups and is actively involved in Chevrolet Youth Soccer and Chevrolet Youth Baseball with the Ganley Auto Group.
If selected as mayor, Zegarac said he hopes to continue solid growth around the Nagel Road Interchange, expand and promote business development and address the city’s flooding issues through a storm sewer project along the southeast section of Nagel Road.
As a 51-year resident of Avon, he said he has been actively involved in the community, raising his family in the city and witnessing the growth of the city under Smith’s leadership.
“I am ready to serve Avon as its next mayor,” Zegarac said. “My experience as City Council president as well as business and management experience will serve Avon well. My experience and conversations with Mayor Smith, the directors of our city and others has given me a desire to lead Avon on a full-time basis as mayor. I am committed to giving Avon as much as possible to have a positive impact on our city.”
