youngstown ohio city council sworn in

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown City Council is ready to begin work, once the ball drops and 2016 is here.

The new council was sworn in Wednesday, taking the oath of office.  This will be the 87th version of city council. Three holdovers–T.J. Rodgers, Nate Pinkard and Mike Ray–will welcome four new members–Julius Oliver, Lauren McNally, Anita Davis and Basia Adamczak.

“To go from the second floor of City Hall to the sixth, it just goes to show that  young people in this city can really grab ahold of their life and don’t have to settle for mediocracy,” said new First Ward councilman Julius Oliver.

Oliver’s plans include meeting with neighborhood associations, youth groups and youth associations, to work together in a positive direction and reduce the violence in the city.

“I’ve had great conversations with the incoming council members, everyone has a lot of great ideas,” new fifth ward councilwoman Lauren McNally said. “I think we’ll work well together, work cooperatively together to get things accomplished.”

The new Youngstown City Council will meet for the first time at 8 p.m. Monday.
