  Munroe To Leave Post At Board Of Elections After 30 Years Of Service  
  September 9, 2021 Edition  
      At a meeting of the Mahoning County Board of Elections held on Tuesday, Board Chairman Mark Munroe, of Boardman, announced he would retire by month’s end, September 30.
      Munroe first joined the board 30 years ago this past March when he joined Dennis Vitt, Mary Kathryn Smith and Don Hanni as a board member.
      Munroe commented: “l have seen many changes over the past three decades, including new voting systems, changes in election law, a reduction in precincts, early and no fault absentee voting and much more. There have been hearings, protests, challenges and lawsuits, but at the heart of it all was the board of elections working to run good elections that voters could have confidence in. My number one goal was to always conduct our business in such a way as to encourage faith and trust in the system. Nothing was more important.”
      “lt’s been 30 years, and this is my birthday month, so I thought it was a good time to step down.”
      Munroe says he plans to keep a busy schedule looking after a new granddaughter, nursing his 1976 MGB, and continuing to tinker with ham radio and improve his morse code skills.
