Jean Taddie is a 22-year resident of Mansfield’s 6th ward and a vocal community advocate. Jean moved to Mansfield from Cleveland in 1997 and bought a home in the neighborhood where her partner, John Precup, grew up.
Professionally, Jean earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resources and a Master of Applied Communications at Cleveland State University, then taught public speaking, coalition building, conflict resolution and other communication skills for 10 years at local colleges. Following that, Jean worked over 9 years for a nonprofit community development organization in Mansfield, where she closely followed city government matters. Since 2017, Jean is the Director of the North Central Ohio Land Conservancy, a small nonprofit that protects local nature preserves.
Jean has been the 6th Ward City Council Woman since January, 2019. She previously served on the Mansfield Charter Commission in 2016. Jean says the diverse people in the 6th ward inspire her to serve.
Jean started a Facebook community (https://www.facebook.com/Ward6Mansfield/) as a place to organize local events, share neighborhood news, and recognize positive elements that residents would like to build on.
