John Lorson
Orrville Council- Ward 2


After earning my Bachelor’s Degree from The University of Akron, my wife and I chose to settle and rear our family in Orrville, my hometown.


I spent 15 years working for the City of Orrville—much of that at City Hall as an Engineering Technician and Zoning Inspector—then ten years with The University of Akron Wayne College as Coordinator of the Millersburg campus. Having spent a lifetime living in Orrville, and working as a public servant, college administrator, small business owner and two term City Council representative, I have a well-rounded perspective on the needs of our community and its citizens.


I know this town as well as anyone and I’d love to continue doing whatever I can to help Orrville continue to prosper.
