Meet the Candidates, Bay Village Ward 3: Bernadette Power
Our family moved to Bay Village during the height of the Pandemic (June 2020). Even during that very difficult time, we were received by a wonderful community with open arms.
I was raised in Fairview Park, and attended Cleveland State, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Health Science. I have found my professional calling outside that field, and I am honored to work in the accounting field for the Department of Defense. I find purpose there, making sure our military members are paid for their service to our country.
We are an active duty military family and have moved around the country for the last fifteen years. We have lived everywhere from Alaska, to California, to Connecticut; and can say without question that Bay Village is absolutely the most amazing community we have experienced.
We have chosen Bay for our retirement from the military and could not be happier. We have two children in the Bay Village schools and volunteering is extremely important to our family.
In our short time here I have worked on projects with the Bay Village Foundation, Special Spaces Cleveland, Snow Angels, the BVECPTA, Bay Village Women’s Club and I chair a committee at the BVCSD.
Service is one of my core values and I look forward to working to continue strengthening Bay and serving our community in the most impactful positions. My focus each day as the Ward 3 Councilwoman, would be Stewardship, Teamwork and our Community. I look forward to serving.
