As a result of Genoa Township trustee Rick Carfagna’s election to the Ohio House of Representatives’ District 68, remaining trustees Karl Gebhardt and Frank Dantonio formally announced their search for candidates to fill Carfagna’s remaining unexpired term of office. Carfagna, who is in his second four-year term as a Genoa trustee, leaves a board of trustees seat open from January 1 through December 31, 2017. A recent Genoa Township press release notes that candidates for the one-year trustee appointment must submit a cover letter outlining their qualifications, a resume, references, and a Genoa Township Employment Application no later than noon on December 1. The items can be hand delivered to the Genoa Township Administrative Office (5111 South Old 3C Highway) or emailed to Genoa Township Administrator Paul Wise at pwise@genoatwp.com.

Complete details of the New Trustee Appointment Procedure can be reviewed online at GenoaTwp.com. Following an initial review of candidate applications and supporting materials, finalists will be announced at a trustee meeting on December 5 and interviews scheduled. Finalists will verbally present their qualifications during a December 15 board of trustees meeting.

Genoa Township residents may express their support or opposition of finalists in writing to Paul Wise.

Trustees Gebhardt and Dantonio’s goal is to appoint a new trustee by December 31. However, if the trustees cannot agree to a trustee appointment by January 30, 2017, the unresolved appointment will be submitted to Delaware County Probate Judge David Hejmanowski for resolution as per Ohio Revised Code. Carfagna will continue serving as Trustee until January 1, when he will be sworn in as State Representative, 68th House District.

“It has been an honor serving as Trustee,” said Representative-Elect Carfagna. “To see how far we’ve come in the past seven years, our community has much to be proud of and I’m grateful to our residents for allowing me to have been a part of this effort. As a resident, I care deeply about the direction of Genoa Township and plan to remain involved in whatever capacity possible.”
