Two new members named to Metroparks Toledo board
Two additional members of the Metroparks Toledo board of park commissioners, Kevin Dalton and Molly Luetke, were sworn in January 3 by Judge Jack Puffenberger of Lucas County Probate Court. Current board president Scott Savage was sworn in for a fifth term December 28.
At the last board meeting, current members Mr. Savage, Lera Doneghy and Fritz Byers voted to expand the board from three to five members to increase capacity and expand representation in the community.
Judge Puffenberger, who appoints members to the volunteer board, said he believes the two he selected will do just that.
Mr. Dalton, who taught first grade for 15 years before being elected president of the Toledo Federation of Teachers, representing 3,500 educators, is a Jerusalem Township native and current resident.
Judge Puffenberger said having a representative of the eastern part of the county is important because of Metroparks recent addition of Howard Marsh and future plans for the former Marina District. He also said it is important to represent organized labor.
