Tavia Galonski is proud to serve Summit County Residents as Clerk of Courts. Comprised of two Divisions - Legal and Title - the Clerk's Office maintains records for the Summit County Common Pleas Court (General Division), the Summit County Domestic Relations Court, and the Ninth District Court of Appeals, as well as issuing Certificates of Title for watercraft and motor vehicles.

She previously served as State Representative for Ohio's 35th District which includes the Akron neighborhoods of Ellet, Firestone Park, Goodyear Hts., Kenmore, Middlebury as well as almost all of the city of Barberton and portions of Coventry and Springfield Townships.

As a former Teamster and daughter of UAW worker, former state Rep. Tavia Galonski knows the importance of rewarding hard work and putting family first. From the creation of new, better-paying jobs to fully funding our schools and protecting our children, Galonski was focused on using her legal expertise and work experience to address the biggest challenges facing the state and improve the quality of life for residents of the 33rd House district.

Galonski, previously a magistrate in the Summit County Court of Common Pleas, has served the state in a legal capacity for over 15 years. Formerly a magistrate of the county’s domestic relations court, she most recently served as magistrate of the county’s juvenile court before coming to the state legislature.

Galonski received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Emory University in Atlanta, where she became employed with Delta Airlines as a flight attendant. Her goal at Delta was for flight attendants to be unionized like pilots, as she noticed the pilots were able to negotiate as a unit for fair and just workplace agreements.

She continued to work full time as a flight attendant while attending the University of Akron School of Law, where she was a Dean’s Club Scholar. She graduated from the University of Akron School of Law in 1995 and was admitted to the practice of law.

She is married to Summit County Chief Assistant Prosecutor John Galonski. The Galonskis have a son, a daughter and a grandson.
