Mayor Carty Finkbeiner s chief of staff has taken a seat on the Toledo-Lucas County Board of Health.
Robert Reinbolt, 58, will fill a vacancy left by the death last year of board member Ruth Lewandowski. He was appointed by Mr. Finkbeiner, approved by City Council, and yesterday was sworn in to the board seat.
This is the second time Mr. Reinbolt has served on the health board. He served as a charter member of the health board when it was formed out of the merger of the county and city health departments in 1999, but resigned in 2003.
Mr. Reinbolt s appointment brings the current board to 11 members, one short of a full board.
Mr. Finkbeiner still must appoint someone to fill a board seat left vacant last year by the resignation of Joyce Chapple, former director of human resources for the City of Toledo.
