    Election & Service

    President of Wadsworth City Council Bob Thurber was first elected to office to fill one of
    the three Council At Large seats for the 2014-15 term. In April of 2016, his party tapped
    him to fill the Council leadership position when a vacancy occurred. Mr. Thurber served
    on the Public Safety Committee, Cable TV Commission, as well as the Economic
    Development and Planning Committee, which he also chaired.


    Mr. Thurber opened Thurber’s Jewelers’ more than 30 years ago in downtown
    Wadsworth. His interest in hand-wrought jewelry and gemology -- which ultimately led
    to the Main Street business -- developed from a Jeweler’s Apprenticeship undertaken
    while he was still in college. Mr. Thurber enrolled in the apprenticeship at the same
    time he was completing his Bachelor’s Degree and Teaching Designation in Biology.

    Volunteer Work

    Among the many community boards on which he’s served, Mr. Thurber counts Main
    Street Wadsworth at the top for its entrepreneurial-mindedness and the desire to stretch
    every dollar. His involvement with the Main Street group spans nearly 20 years. A
    member of the Wadsworth Chamber of Commerce for 33 years, Mr. Thurber also
    served for a time as its president. He’s been a member of the Salvation Army and
    Crossroad Community Church Board of Directors as well. Currently, he serves as a
    deacon for the Crossroads Community Church


    Mr. Thurber and his wife, Kim, have been married for 39 years. They are proud parents
    to a daughter and a son, and have lived in Wadsworth for 33 years.
