Five Questions With Mayor Jerry Hruby
Did you know that he’s a huge Walt Disney fan? Or that he’s an avid historian?
Brecksville Mayor Jerry Hruby is all business when it comes to running the city.
He’s done it for the past 26 years.
But it was all business.
We thought we’d take a few minutes to get to know the man behind the mayor’s desk a little better. For starters, he’s been married to his wife, Patricia, for 43 years.
What makes Brecksville the best place to live and work? Our location, amenities and schools. Young couples come here they want a good school system. Location is equally important. And we’ve got 33,000 acres of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in our backyard.
What’s something people don’t know about you? Most people know everything about me. I think everybody knows I am an avid Disney fan. I am a collector and I go to Disney World often. I am also a local history buff.
What’s your favorite movie? I’m a theatre buff. I’ve been in 12 or 13 different plays in Brecksville. But I am a simple guy when it comes to movies. You put me down in front of a Disney classic and I will be happy.
Where’s your favorite spot to get dinner in Brecksville? Anything in Brecksville is my favorite — I like them all. I try to make it my business to try them all. But I like Honey Hut and I like (Lemonberry). Those are my two favorite.
Other than Brecksville, where would you like to live? I couldn’t see myself living anywhere else but Brecksville. But I enjoy immensely, gong to Massachusetts and the fishing town of Gloucester. I’d love to live by the ocean. I love it there. But I would need my Brecksville fix. I also enjoy the Republic of Ireland. My wife has relatives there and I love visiting there. I could see myself owning cottage by the seashore.
