YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Mahoning County Probate Judge Robert Rusu, Jr. has announced his picks for the Selection Committee that will help him choose the next Mill Creek MetroParks Board Commissioner.
Those serving on the Selection Committee include Rick Shale, Richard Scarsella, Robert Toman, Leo DaPrile, Jeff Harvey, Y.T. Chiu, Glen Cimaglia, Kate Shipka, Lynn Anderson and Andrew Detesco.
The committee is tasked with replacing Commissioner Michael Senchak, who resigned from the Park Board last month.
Judge Rusu said that he views the creation of this Selection Committee “as the first step in the direction of allowing the public to have more input into the operation of Mill Creek Park and his desire to keep the process transparent.” The judge further stated that this is a unique group of citizens with a wide range of backgrounds who all have varying interest in different aspects of the park.
The judge will meet with the Selection Committee for the first time on April 19 to discuss the process of choosing a new commissioner and the role of the Selection Committee.
