Szuch, Jacobs named to Port AuthorityWritten by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Lucas County Commissioners voted 2-0 on Sept. 29 to fill two Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority Board vacancies with John Szuch, Chairman of Fifth Third Bank of Northwest Ohio, and Dr. Lloyd Jacobs, President of the University of Toledo. Pete Gerken and Tina Skeldon Wozniak also voted to re-appointment A. Bailey Stanbery, of Stanbery Homes, to another term on the Board.
Lucas County Commissioner Ben Konop, who did not attend the meeting in observance of Rosh Hashanah, previously endorsed Szuch and Jacobs.
The two commissioners also passed a resolution Sept. 29 endorsing the upcoming Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority renewal levy.
“In these tough economic times, we need more jobs and we need them right now. I’m proud of our cooperative efforts with the Port Authority and encourage all citizens to support this worthwhile investment,” Wozniak said.
“From Ironhead Marine to Xunlight and every project in between, the Port Authority has proven to be a vital player for job creation in our region. There is nothing more important to our future than the continued support of these worthwhile efforts,” Gerken said.
