At its Annual Meeting held Saturday May 21 in Columbus, All Aboard Ohio’s general membership elected qualified and dedicated persons to the nonprofit association’s 15-member board of directors. This included three new membership-elected board members Tom Horsman of Cleveland, Sue Mancino of Wickliffe and Robert Winn of Cleveland.

A fourth new board member, Laurie Housemeyer of Cincinnati, who expressed interest in serving after the filing deadline was appointed to the board by the newly elected directors, as per the association’s bylaws. Also according to the bylaws, the directors chose the association’s officers from among their ranks. Re-elected officers were Chairman Jack Shaner of Columbus, Secretary Charles Horn of Kenton, and Treasurer Ken Clifford of Medway. Newly elected as vice-chairman was Derek Bauman of Cincinnati.

All Aboard Ohio thanks outgoing board members Timothy Porter of Toledo, Ronald Sheck of Sylvania, Akshai Singh of Cleveland Heights, and Ken Sislak of Shaker Heights for their volunteerism and professionalism in service to the association. All expressed a desire to remain supportive of All Aboard Ohio albeit in less active capacities.
