Promoting community growth through transparency, fiscal responsibility, and service.
Scott Barr grew up in Chagrin Falls, Ohio before moving to Twinsburg in 2008. Scott attended Kent State University where he studied communications. After college, Scott became a Police Officer, graduating from the Garrettsville Police Academy, 1st in his class. Scott worked for the Orange Village Police Department where he also became a firefighter and an EMT. It was during this period that he met his wife of 11 years, Megan.
In 2006, Scott’s father had an opportunity for him to learn the family business. Scott put down his gun belt and picked up a tool belt. A project manager for the company, Scott helped his father develop and build several residential neighborhoods throughout Northeast Ohio. In 2011, after surviving the worst of the recession, Scott’s father closed up shop. It was at this point Scott became a project engineer for Solon Glass Center, where he still works today. Scott’s diversity in the work gave him the experience he needs to serve the residents of Twinsburg.
Scott, his wife Megan, and their two children, Jackson and Ellis reside in Ethan’s Green. Scott’s son, Jackson, will be entering the third grade. Scott’s daughter, Ellis will be starting kindergarten this fall. Megan is an Intervention Specialist for the West Geauga Local Schools, where she has worked for the past 18 years.
In addition to Scott’s breadth of professional experience, he is also involved in his community. As a Trustee for the Ethan’s Green Homeowner’s Association, he has worked to provide the residents the best services possible. In 2015 Scott was a member of the Twinsburg Redistricting Commission. Scott is currently serving his second year on the Twinsburg Environmental Commission, where he has helped to plan events from Earth Day to Community Cleanup, and free shredding.
As a former public employee, Scott is familiar with the workings of local government. He is aware of the great responsibility that will be entrusted to him as a Twinsburg City Councilman. Scott’s history of public service spans almost two decades. Electing him to Twinsburg City Council will allow him to bring that experience to the residents of Twinsburg.
“City Council should be about good people doing good things for their community.” – Scott Barr
