Mission

“I am proud to serve the people of the City of Tiffin. We are working tirelessly to build a stronger community where businesses and residents can thrive.”

About

Tiffin Mayor Aaron D. Montz was first elected in November 2011 having just turned 26 years old. Montz’s immense love for the community and his dedication towards redevelopment of the business sector prompted his desire to lead his hometown through one of the most difficult times facing Tiffin since the Great Depression.

Montz was elected with a pledge to be a dynamic leader and unifier for the community. With a deep background in retail management and human resources, Montz has promised to bring an atmosphere of what he dubs “Retail Politics” to the City of Tiffin. He believes in a customer service based approach to dealing with residents and business’s concerns and believes there is always a way to say yes.

Mayor Montz is a 2004 graduate of Tiffin Columbian High School and a 2008 graduate of Heidelberg University (BA) where he studied History and Political Science. He believes the schools and the two universities located within the City of Tiffin are an important developmental aspect of the community.

In 2007, Montz – age 22, was elected to Tiffin City Council to represent the City’s Second Ward. During his term as Second Ward Councilman he chaired the Streets, Sidewalks, and Sewers Committee as well as the Recreation and Public Properties Committee. Montz also served on the Finance Committee where he was an active voice in fiscal responsibility and advocate against wasteful government spending.

Montz has been heavily involved in regional and state government, being elected the President of the Seneca Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) in 2012 and President of the North Central Ohio Regional Council of Governments (NCORCOG) that same year. Governor John Kasich appointed Mayor Montz to the State of Ohio Criminal Sentencing Commission in 2013 as the lone Mayoral representative. In 2014, Aaron was also elected President of the Northwest Ohio Mayors and Managers Association (NOMMA) for a two year term, to which he was re-elected in March of 2016 for another two year term. Montz assisted with the creation of the Seneca County Young Professionals, serving as the organizations first President in 2015.

In the Fall of 2015, Mayor Aaron D. Montz was re-elected with 85% of the vote, an all-time record for a Tiffin Mayoral candidate facing an opponent. In fact, no other Mayoral candidate in the State of Ohio (with a challenger) received a higher margin of victory than Montz in 2015.

Aaron is the eldest son of James and Betty Montz and has one brother Nicholas. His parents instilled in him many values but most of all stressed the importance of treating others in the community with dignity and respect. Mayor Montz continues to emphasize leading in a positive manner, always remembering your roots and never forgetting where you came from.
