Lucas County commissioners have unanimously elected Carol Contrada to lead the board of commissioners as president in 2013. Ms. Contrada's election to the one-year term took place Monday at the commissioners' annual organizational meeting.
Commissioner Pete Gerken served as president the last four years, Tina Skeldon Wozniak for the four years prior to that.
In looking ahead, Ms. Contrada said she hopes to take a hard look at the county's efforts on economic development, regional partnerships, work-force development, and criminal justice expenditures. The commissioners also voted to change their weekly meeting time from 9:30 a.m. on Tuesdays to 1:30 p.m. Tuesdays.
