Mahoning commissioners OK new one-year deal with Tablack



Published: Tue, May 18, 2010 @ 2:41 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — County Administrator George J. Tablack has a new one-year deal, but one commissioner opposed the pact, citing the county’s poor economic condition.

Today’s vote to rehire Tablack was 2-1, with Commissioners Anthony T. Traficanti and David N. Ludt in favor, and Commissioner John A. McNally IV opposed.

It was the same alignment of commissioners as in the 2006 vote concerning Tablack’s initial four-year contract, which expired Saturday.

The other terms of Tablack’s contract will remain the same: a $103,809 annual salary, minus 10 percent in the form of an unpaid holiday every two weeks; and six weeks of annual vacation; and a clause requiring a lump-sum buyout equal to six months of his salary if the commissioners fire him.

McNally said he was opposed to the contract renewal because of the county’s poor financial condition, but he was willing to keep Tablack as a regular at-will employee as he was before he got his initial contract four years ago.

You have to be kidding me. This guy will make 93,428 in salary per year and be off 56 days per year between vacation and one unpaid holiday every two weeks. Plus if he screws up and the commissioners want to get rid of him they need to pay him half of his annual salary just to get rid of him.

How many deputies could have been saved on Georgette's salary?

Question: Was this a 10% pay "donation" which would not affect benefits (read pension) ? How many other county employees got this deal?

George Tablack is the cancer on our county. When I hear Traficanti and Ludt say there is no one else who can do his job it just shows what poor leadership we have, there are plenty of people in Mahoning County that can do George's job and do it without getting every employee and union mad at them. Good for John that he voted no!

I would like to know exactly how what his typical work week schedule is like. He could not make it in Florida so somehow he came back here and continues to live off the public. He could never make this kind of cash in the private sector.

Thanks John for voting the correct way.

Ludt is out and next is Traficanti. Talk about incomptence Tablack is way over paid for the work he does.

The county would have been in a fisal emergency long ago if it had not been for the ability Tablack has in government finance.

You'd get a thousand well-qualified applicants that would take the job for $65,000/yr..
