Struthers council chief resigns; others in body stay

Published: Thu, May 10, 2001 @ 12:00 a.m.

STRUTHERS -- On the night city council accepted the resignation letter of its president, Michael Orenic, two councilmen said they would finish serving their terms.

Robert Carcelli, D-at large, said he will focus on the development of LTV Steel property and battle energy deregulation until his term ends Dec. 31, 2001.

And Mark Sandine, D-2nd, said he was elected to serve two terms and feels obligated to fulfill the order.

Councilman Terry Stocker, D-4th and president pro tempore, served in Orenic's place at Wednesday's regular meeting, during which Orenic's letter was read.

In the letter: Orenic, who was defeated by 78 votes in Tuesday's primary by Councilman Danny Thomas Jr., D-1st, wrote: "Struthers remains a good place to live, and I want to thank the people who voted for me for their confidence and 20 years of support. However, I will respect the wishes of the community."

Both Stocker and Councilman Daniel Yemma, D-at large, thanked Orenic, who did not attend, for his work.

Stokers' switch to president for the remainder of 2001 means a 4th Ward Democratic precinct committeeman will fill his spot for the remainder of the year.

Officials will begin looking for that replacement this week.
