Happy Thanksgiving
Mayor Craig Stough

City of Sylvania Mayor,
Craig A. Stough


"Happy Thanksgiving"

At this time of the year, it is good to reflect on and be thankful for all we have and enjoy living here in Sylvania.

We enjoy peace, safety and prosperity. Recent elections took place peacefully and honestly. That is an American tradition that has proven difficult to establish in much of the rest of the world.

When I meet with groups of students, I often start by telling them how fortunate they are to be living here in Sylvania. There are kids all over the world who would give almost anything to change places with them, and who are working hard at their studies to someday have all we have here in Sylvania. I think that is true for all of us adults as well.

We have excellent schools in Sylvania that continue to draw new residents to move here. Just as my family chose Sylvania almost 60 years ago because of the quality of the Sylvania Schools, so do families today. Sylvania also has several excellent private schools, and Lourdes University offering higher education.

World class healthcare is right here in Sylvania with Flower Hospital and all the many services that campus has to offer. People travel to Sylvania to be able to use what is right here in our City.

Our neighborhoods are safe to raise our families. We have excellent safety forces in our police and fire departments who respond quickly in emergencies. Sylvania has many excellent career public servants operating our City services efficiently and responsibly.

Our downtown is active and growing. We have a wonderful Senior Center. We have a wide diversity of religious opportunities. It is very easy to enjoy our many beautiful parks in the community. Our service organizations are active. Sylvania also has terrific athletic and sports opportunities thanks to the highly successful Sylvania Area Regional Joint Recreation District, one of the first and best in Ohio.

One of the best things about Sylvania is the quality of the people living here. We have so many residents volunteering their time in the hospital, in the schools, in recreation programs, in churches and so many more. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are working to make Sylvania a better place.


 I am thankful to be here in Sylvania. It is a great place to live, work and raise a family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We'd like to help everyone stay connected to the community this holiday season!
