To help serve residents of the City and to provide guidance to the Administration and Council, several boards and commissions have been established, as outlined in the City’s Charter and Code of Ordinances. All positions to these boards and commissions are volunteer and are made via appointment by City Council. Find out more about each on the City website.
In addition to this, the the Sycamore Community Schools Sycamore Advisory Commission (SAC) is seeking members who are interested in serving the Board of Education by researching questions from the board and participating in subcommittees to inform some long-term decisions. Learn more about the SAC here. Apply to join the Commission here.
The new and returning members of the Blue Ash City Council were sword in at a brief meeting on December 1. In addition to returning members Lee Czerwonka, Jill Cole, and Jeff Capell, Brian Gath was sworn in to represent Ward 2. After members were sworn, they elected to keep Mark Sirkin and Pramod Jhaveri as the city’s Mayor and Vice Mayor for another two years.
The results are in and I’m excited to share that you’ve elected me to represent Ward 2 on the Blue Ash City Council. To everyone who supported me in any way know that I am grateful for your efforts. To my neighbors who didn’t vote for me, know that I will work just as hard to advocate for you as I will for anyone else.
In the time before I am sworn in I’ll be meeting with city administration and getting a deeper understanding of the state of the city and the issues we face.
If you haven’t yet, please sign up for my newsletter where I will share news about Blue Ash and the City Council.

Every leader has to answer tough questions. Every good office holder needs to answer tough questions asked by the voters and city officials. As a candidate to represent Ward 2 on the Blue Ash City Council, I’ve gotten a chance to answer some tough questions.
Recently the League of Women Voters and the Cincinnati Enquirer sent all the candidates for local offices a series of questions. Some were easy (what’s your name). Some were very hard (in 250 characters or less, what qualifies you for the office you seek). I encourage you to read the answers of both candidates before you make your choice. Of course, on each of the sites, you will find answers about all the offices you will find on your ballot November 2. Read More
