Board interviews 3

YOUNGSTOWN

The Youngstown Board of Health on Wednesday interviewed three finalists for the position of department administrator but took no official action to fill the job.

The board is expected to announce a decision at its Dec. 2 meeting, said city Law Director Anthony Farris, who sat in on the interviews.

Candidates interviewed were Erin Bishop, acting health commissioner since February 2011; Felicia Alexander, director of the Youngstown Office of Minority Health since 2008; and Dr. Joshua Morton of Niles, field-event manager for Health Fitness Corp. since 2009.

The board received six applications for the position and reduced the number of candidates to three at its October meeting.

Sweeney to donate

BOARDMAN

Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC has kicked off its annual Operation Santa Claus to support needy children during the holiday season and throughout the year. This year, the project will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Youngstown and the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign of Mahoning County.

From now through Dec. 31, for every new Chevrolet sold at Sweeney, the dealership will make a $50 donation to the Boys & Girls Club; and for every new Buick and GMC vehicle sold at Sweeney, a $50 donation will be made to the Red Kettle Campaign.

“Our goal is raise awareness and donate anywhere between $10,000 and $15,000 to each of these organizations to support the good work they do in our community,” said Doug Sweeney, president Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC.

Good luck Erin Bishop. You are doing a great job. Great job uncovering the missed inspections and correcting the problem. I hope the new mayor appreciates what you are doing. It sure doesn't seem like the out going mayor does. Just how many hoops does he want you to jump through? And by the way, you made every jump. The people need to know.
