Council candidate driven to maintain quality of Tiffin

A candidate for Tiffin City Council First Ward said she is driven by the desire to maintain the quality of the community.

Bridget Boyle — relations manager at Sutton Bank — is on the ballot asking voters to consider her for City Council this Nov. 5.

Boyle is originally from Cleveland and made her way to Tiffin to play volleyball at Tiffin University — where she graduated with a degree in business administration in 2014.

Boyle said in her four years living downtown, she is excited to see all the improvements and changes to the area.

“I’ve seen the changes and development throughout downtown and the positive impact it has made,” Boyle said. “I am excited to be a part of them and I look forward to hopefully continue that work.”

This would be her first political position.

Boyle said the opportunity came along — although bitter sweet — to serve on council and she said she would be fortunate to be part of a great leadership team and to work to maintain that legacy.

“I fell in love with Tiffin,” Boyle said. “I’m in love with the small town atmosphere and the small town qualities Tiffin has.”

Boyle said she would like to see the focus that has been put into the downtown to expand to other areas of the city.

“I hope to work to build and create more opportunities for Tiffin,” she said.

The current council is wise and experienced, Boyle said, and she hopes to emulate that and to learn from them.

“I want to make my own impact and to continue to help the city,” she said.

On issues, Boyle said she would not give her full attention if she is not 100% committed.

“You have to be who you are and not give in on making a decision,” she said.
