Mahoning tabs former supervisor to round out board
A recently departed official has been pegged to round out the Mahoning Township board of supervisors.
Supervisors on a 4-0 vote Wednesday appointed Myron “Zeke” Blahy to fill the vacant seat on the board.
Blahy was one of three candidates who applied for the post. John Wieczorek and Pat Snyder also applied.
After losing out in his bid for reelection in November, Blahy replaces former board Chairman Bruce Steigerwalt.
At its end-of-year meeting last month, supervisors accepted Steigerwalt’s resignation, which was verbally tendered earlier in December.
Two new supervisors, Deborah McGowan and Ronald Reeser, joined the board at that meeting.
Blahy, who will serve until November’s election, said he was glad to rejoin the board.
“I’d like to just see the township move forward with different issues,” Blahy said. “I’ve seen civility; it was nice to see that.”
Blahy had served on the board since January 2018.
