From Mayor Pribonic:

Dear Residents and Visitors:

Thank you for visiting the City of Stow website-I appreciate your interest in our community. I am very excited to be the Mayor of such an outstanding community. I look forward to building an even stronger community, with enhanced collaboration with our school system, our businesses, and our civic organizations. I intend to strive for greater collaboration with our surrounding communities as well.

I, and my administration are dedicated to making sure that every individual, including senior citizens, children, and people with disabilities, is a vital member of our community and has opportunities for an improved quality of life.

My wife Cindy and I have been residents of Stow for 30 years. Both our children, Andy (married to Kristin) and Katie (married to Steve) are proud graduates of Stow-Munroe Falls High School. We have one grandson and two granddaughters.

I am a graduate of the University of Akron with a degree in Business and Sales and Marketing. I retired in 2018 after almost 42 years of service with Albrecht Grocery (Acme) as a Store Director. Currently, I am the Mayor of the City of Stow.

Before accepting the role of Mayor, I was on Stow City Council for 11 years and the Stow-Munroe Falls Board of Education for six years.

I am very proud to call the City of Stow my home. Some of the organizations I am currently a member of are:

  • The Stow-Munroe Falls Chamber of Commerce
  • Rotary Club of Stow-Munroe Falls
  • Stow-Munroe Falls Community Foundation

I believe education is one of the most important foundations in our society; this is the reason I am proud to also be a member of The Stow Schools Foundation.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve the community I love.

John Pribonic,
Mayor of Stow
