“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Bridgette when I was on council and again when I became mayor six years ago,” said Mackin. “In her 10 years of public service with the city, Bridgette has proven herself to be a strong leader who has helped our city thrive and grow.”
According to the City, under Kabat’s leadership, she has overseen numerous project through completion including:
- The transitioning of three mayors

- Additions to the Perrysburg Senior Center
“I want to personally thank Bridgette for her hard work and dedication on these and all of the projects she has been a part of,” said Mackin. “The position of City Administrator is a challenging one but she has handled it all with ease. I have put my trust in her in managing this city and have had the utmost confidence in her since day one. The experience and leadership that she is taking with her will be an asset to her next employer.”
