Name: Brian Macala
Office Desired: Campbell Director of Law
Education: YSU, 1989; Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, 1992
I have held the position for 21 total years. In that time I have prosecuted over 9,000 cases and provided independent legal counsel for the City. I am also very involved with Campbell organizations, especially those focused on our children.
What are your priorities for your community?
To continue to work closely with our law enforcement to ensure safety for the citizens of Campbell. Toward that goal, I make myself available to our police officers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I also work closely with our zoning department to address properties in need of attention to improve quality of life in our neighborhoods. I will continue to work closely with our Administration and Council, providing independent legal counsel in helping to improve our City, in whatever form that may take.
What policies, if any, will you support to promote diversity and inclusion in your community?
Campbell is a true melting pot. We have a very diverse community. Growing up here, being educated through Campbell Schools, and living here, there is one thing engrained in me from the diversity of this City – I don’t judge people on who they are, but how they conduct themselves. My daily work is with our police department. We now have a gender and racially diverse group of dedicated officers. I want to see that continue to grow and support efforts to recruit more diversity within the ranks of our patrol officers.
