County Engineer Marsico to withdraw from race

Published: Tue, January 10, 2012 @ 7:58 a.m.

Long-time Mahoning County Engineer Richard Marsico is expected to withdraw from his re-election bid at a 1:30 p.m. news conference this afternoon at the engineer's office, 940 Bears Den Road.

"I was informed late last [night] from the co-chair of Marsico's reelection campaign that he wishes to withdraw from the March primary. I was told he respects the party endorsement and wanted unity for his office and the party." Democratic Party Chariman Dave Betras said in a news release.

Marsico lost the endorsement to newcomer Patrick Ginnetti Saturday.

"Dick has been an awesome officeholder and i respect him, his office and the work he has provided to our county," Betras said in the statement. "I know this decision was difficult for him and I respect him for making such a difficult decision."

Ginnetti will also attend the news conference, Betras said

Now that he won't have his salary as our county engineer, I hope Mr. Marsico will be able to make ends meet on his "meager" public pension.

Disappointed, he did a good job as county engineer. The political machine wins again.

BridgeGuy, If he has a pension, he earned it and is entitled to it. If he chooses to continue to work, he is also entitled to do that. I guarantee that private sector engineers make plenty more then this man. Instead of being jealous and spiteful, you should go earn your engineering degree. The political machine that I spoke of was the county democratic party committee.

Are you serious? I know both Mr. Marsico and Mrs. Kenner personnally and professionally. Any suggestions that either of these two individuals do not hold high ethical standards and proficiency in their abilities to do their job is beyond ludicrous. Maybe you should spend a little more time researching before you post disparaging comments.
