Where is House District 6?
Where isn’t House District 6?
Based in central and southeast Cuyahoga County, the towns and villages of Bentleyville, Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Chagrin Falls, Chagrin Falls Township, Gates Mills, Glenwillow, Highland Heights, Hunting Valley, Independence, Lyndhurst, Mayfield Village, Moreland Hills, Oakwood, Seven Hills, Solon, Valley View and Walton Hills make up Ohio’s uniquely shaped 6th House District.
Surrounded by the lush greenery of the Chagrin Valley, the region includes stops on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad and the Ohio & Erie Canalway and the birthplace of President James A Garfield.
From small, home-based businesses to large multinational companies, tens of thousands of people travel in and out of the area each day for work and a shot at jobs that provide a living wage. Both Progressive Insurance, the second largest auto insurer in the country, and Nestle’s Global R&D and frozen and chilled foods divisions call HD6 home.
If education if the gateway to a successful life, then residents are spoiled for choice. Ten separate public school districts criss cross HD6, educating more than 35,000 students each year. Highly respected private schools including University School and Gilmour Academy, Phil’s alma mater, can also be found in the picturesque region.
