Stow Mayor Sara Kline resigns post to become Cuyahoga Falls Superintendent of Parks

STOW, Ohio – Stow Mayor Sara Kline will resign from her post in Stow and assume the role of Superintendent of Parks for Cuyahoga Falls.

“I treasure my time with Stow and will always look at these 12 1/2 years as among the highlights of my career,” Kline said in a news release. “I am so proud to have been associated with the women and men who are employees of the city of Stow. Any success my administration has had is directly because of their dedication, commitment and service.”

Kline has served as Stow mayor since 2011, and was a Stow councilwoman for six years prior to being elected mayor. Kline previously worked as a support coordinator at the Summit Board of Developmental Disabilities and a vocational rehabilitation counselor for the state.


Her resignation is effective Sunday, May 13. Stow City Council will appoint an interim mayor until a new one is elected.

“The city of Cuyahoga Falls is experiencing a rebirth and is in the midst of many progressive and creative projects,” Kline stated. ” I am very excited to become part of their team as the Superintendent of Parks and look forward to working with Mayor Walters and the entire administration.”

Ongoing is a case in which Kline accused Ward 4 Councilman Bob Adaska of pushing her during a council meeting. He has pleaded not guilty to a minor misdemeanor charge, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.
