Village Council Members

Council Member Scott Bilsky

Scott and his wife Amy have lived in Orange Village since 2004.  They are the proud parents of 2 sons who attend the Orange Schools.

After graduating from Hawken School, Scott attended Miami University where he graduated with a degree in Accountancy.

He is Executive Vice President and a partner at SimTax where he has worked since 1997.  SimTax is an accounting firm which specializes in procuring Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC) for employers.  Scott frequently spends time in Washington D.C. lobbying for the continuation and expansion of the WOTC program.

Volunteering and giving back to the community are important to Scott and Amy.  Scott is a member of the Orange Village Finance Committee.  He has served on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee at Fairmount Temple and served the Chair of their Budget Committee for many years.  Scott has served as Class Agent at Hawken School.  Amy is very active at the Orange Schools where she was President of the Elementary and Middle School PTA and where she currently volunteers in many capacities.

In addition to his various board responsibilities, Scott has coached his boys’ baseball, soccer and flag football teams.  He plays softball during the summer and spends his free time in the winter practicing baseball to prepare for his annual trip to Cleveland Indians Fantasy Camp.

Scott is very proud of his community and how it operates.  Orange Village is a great place to live, and a wonderful place to raise a family.  Our leadership is committed to fiscal responsibility and to listening to our residents.  With the opening of Pinecrest and the development of the Chagrin Highlands project, this is an important time in the history of the village.

Scott introduced the Do Not Knock Ordinance which allows Orange residents to add their address to a Do Not Knock Registry in order to protect their home from unwanted solicitors.

He also helped Orange Village become the first municipality in Ohio to enact restrictions on the use of disposable plastic bags to ensure Village businesses are engaging in environmentally friendly practices.

Scott would love to hear from his fellow residents about their experiences and any of their concerns.

Council Member Staci Adelman Vincent

Staci Adelman Vincent is honored to serve the wonderful residents of Orange Village and is humbled by the trust her neighbors have placed in her through their tremendous show of support in the 2019 election. Staci looks forward to representing residents’ voices and visions for the next four years to ensure that the Village remains true to its traditional roots as a charming community with its beautiful natural resources while continuing to thrive as a safe and accessible community for all generations. Though it is crucial to be stewards of fiscal responsibility and still maintain support for our outstanding community services, Staci knows the bottom line isn’t about numbers–it’s about people: how you are engaged; what your quality of life is; how much you love where you live; how you can live a life you love. Staci’s communication skills, collaborative efforts, and passion, respect, and heart for ‘All Things Orange’ are what motivate her.

A 1983 graduate of Orange High School with an Accelerated Master’s Degree and Bachelor of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University, Staci is a Society of Professional Journalists-, Best of Gannett-, and Emmy-Award winning television correspondent who has covered events around the world ranging from Senator John Glenn’s return to space to the Princess Diana tragedy in Europe.

Upon returning to Northeast Ohio 21 years ago, Staci and her husband, attorney Leland Vincent, purchased their first home in Orange Village where they continue to reside with their two sons, Ryan (OHS 19, now a student at the College of William & Mary), and Caden (OHS 22), along with their English Lab, Colby. After serving as Assistant News Director and Executive Producer/Special Projects for WKYC-TV, Staci has worked diligently in the Communications Department of the Orange Schools for the past decade showcasing the extraordinary achievement of Orange Schools students, staff, and community members. For her work in photography, writing, and social media efforts, Staci has garnered dozens of public relations awards, including seven Best of the Best in the State honors.

The youngest Orange Hall of Fame Inductee and Past President of the Orange Alumni Association, Staci performs with the Note-oriety Show Choir and Singing Angels Alumni and has been actively involved in the Northwestern Alumni Association Admissions Council, the Orange Schools PTA (most recently as Senior Class Parent Committee Co-Chair), the Orange Senior Center, and the Kiwanis Club of Lander Circle. She has coached competitive drill teams around the country for more than three decades, serving as the OHS Lionettes Coach for four years. Staci emcees events throughout the community including the annual Reflections Ceremony and this past year moderated a District-wide panel discussion on the teen vaping epidemic.

A regular attendee at Orange Village Planning & Zoning, Finance Committee, and School Board meetings, Staci looks forward to bridging the conversations between all Community Stakeholders including Village residents, our outstanding schools, the award-winning Pinecrest Development, and Village Administrators as well as expanding our outreach to neighboring communities. She encourages you to reach out to her via email or Facebook (www.facebook.com/Vincent4OrangeVillage/ ) with ideas, thoughts, concerns, or just to say hello and looks forward to connecting with residents through Trail Talks beginning this spring. Staci is eager to build on the relationships that began door to door during the campaign and wants you to know that her door always remains open to you.

Council Member Pradip Kamat

I am honored to be elected to the Orange Village Council and appreciate the opportunity to serve this wonderful community.  As a 25-year resident of Orange Village, I am fortunate to have family members of all ages in this community, including my wife Deborah, my children, and grandchildren.  Both of our children are graduates of Orange High School.  These community connections give me a strong incentive to keep our community beautiful, family-friendly, and safe. One of the strengths, of our community, is that many of our children return after college to buy homes and raise their children here.  I want to keep it that way, for all of us.

It is my goal to put my education and experience to work for Orange Village.  I have a long track record of making sound finance and management decisions.  As an experienced business leader, I will use this community’s tax dollars wisely to ensure that both short term and long terms investments benefit the Village.

As a former executive with large corporations, including Swagelok, Keithley, and Rockwell Automation, I was responsible for contract negotiations, financial analysis, business development, sales and marketing.  Currently, I am a local business owner, with an office on Chagrin.  My company helps American   companies market their products in the U.S. and in India. We also provide sustainable, renewable energy in the U.S. Additionally, I serve on the Board of a plastic, recycling company.  I helped this company raise over $300 million dollars, to build its first plan in Ashley, Indiana.  My experience in renewable energy and recycling gives me an appreciation for the importance of sustainability and protecting our environment.

I have Master’s degrees in Business Administration and Engineering from Case Western Reserve University,

I am a strong supporter of our public schools and have attended school board meetings regularly, since my wife Deborah was elected to serve on the Orange City School Board.  I am proud that our public schools are strong and well-funded.
Public service has always been important to me and to my wife.  Many of you know me because of my volunteer efforts, in support of quality candidates for federal, state, and local office and to increase voter registration and turnout.  I appreciate the trust placed in me, by the voters of this community, to serve as an elected official.

Council President Brandon Duber

Brandon Duber is a partner with the law firm Bentoff & Duber Co., L.P.A., and concentrates his practice in the areas of personal injury, workers’ compensation, social security and criminal defense. Brandon’s political interests began around 2010 when he moved back to Orange Village and his inquisitive personality led to him learn more about how the Village spends its time and money – prompting his interest in having a greater voice in the community.

As a lifelong resident of Orange, Brandon brings new ideas and a unique perspective to the council, having lived in the Village during all stages of his life. His election to council represents the necessity in getting our young professional residents more involved in their community, as new ideas from our younger residents will help the Village prosper in the future.

Brandon was originally elected as a councilman in November, 2011, and was re-elected for a second term in November, 2015. During his time on council, Brandon has chaired the Safety Committee and Parks and Recreation Committee, served as President Pro-Tem, and now serves his second term as President of Council. Brandon has been instrumental in the campaign to install all-purpose trails throughout the Village, as well as in the design and securing the necessary funding for the project, and has been influential in the creation of a dog park and the complete overhaul of the community playground. Brandon’s legal background was also advantageous in creating the framework for the Pinecrest development.

Brandon has lived in Orange Village for the majority of his life. He was born and raised in Orangewood, attended Orange High School, and after a brief stint where he lived in Colorado, he moved back to Orange. He resides in the Villas of Orange with his wife Amber and their dog Cameron.

Brandon received his bachelor of arts degree from Skidmore College, and his Juris Doctor from the Case Western University School of Law.
