Munroe re-elected as Mahoning County Republican Chair

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN, Ohio -
There was no contention at the Mahoning Republican Party Headquarters where Mark Munroe was selected to serve his second four year term as the Republican Party Chairman. Tracy Winbush was selected as the new Vice Chair with all other officers being re-elected.
 
Munroe is encouraging voters to take a good look at area Republican candidates such as Bill Reese who is running for Mahoning County Auditor, and Congressman Bill Johnson who is running for reelection. The Mahoning Party Chair said, "We have great candidates, and Judges such as Scott Kirchbaum, and Maureen Sweeney.
 
He cited over 70 indictments and convictions of Valley Democrats in the past 20 years. Munroe said, "This is not a good environment for this valley. If we are going to have good solid economic growth, if people are going to look at this place as somewhere they would like to move, they want to see a different kind of political environment. We need good honest political competition, that's what we are trying to do."
 
The most recent scandals surrounding Valley Democrats include former Judge Mark Belinky's guilty plea to felony tampering with a record, and his resignation. Mahoning Auditor Mike Sciortino faces 16 felony charges and 6 misdemeanor counts. Youngstown Mayor John McNally faces 25 felony charges and 9 misdemeanors. Auditor Sciortino and Mayor McNally have pled not guilty to the charges. Both are Democrats.
