BREAKING NEWS | McNally appoints his police chief, law director

Published: Fri, December 27, 2013 @ 12:43 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Mayor-elect John A. McNally has appointed Robin Lees as the city's new police chief and Atty. Martin S. Hume as law director.

McNally will formally introduce the two at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Radius Room at Fellows Riverside Gardens, 123 McKinley Ave.

Lees retired from the Youngstown Police Department in 2011 as a lieutenant. He has served in a variety of roles in his 33 years with the department, including commander of the Mahoning Valley Law Enforcement Task Force and its Crisis Response Team, commander of the YPD Vice Squad, three years as the department’s public information officer and has served as officer in charge of the planning and training unit.

Hume has more than 30 years legal experience. He is a civil trial attorney with Martin S. Hume Co. L.P.A., and is certified as a specialist in labor and employment Law by the Ohio State Bar Association and Ohio Supreme Court.

Hume has spent 17 years as an assistant Mahoning County prosecutor, currently assigned to the Boardman court, and has worked for Northeast Ohio Legal Services, assisting low-income individuals with housing issues.

The appointments mean that current Chief Rod Foley, who was appointed by outgoing Mayor Charles Sammarone in 2011, is out as well as Law Director Anthony Farris, who was also appointed by Sammarone.

Have to agree with daar... neither candidate offered much hope for Youngstown. A non-tax paying sexual harasser on one side and a Cafaro tainted puppet on the other hand.

Robin Lees, a handsome man with a Hollywood name.

He should be in the movies, not dealing with Youngstown's criminals.
