Wednesday morning was Trumbull County Commissioner Frank Fuda's last meeting as he retires at the end of his term.

Fuda stood up and made his final speech as a commissioner, a position he held for the last 15 years.

"Each election, I made promises to Trumbull County. For the whole 32 years as a councilman and a commissioner, if I said I was going to do something, I did it. I made the promises, and I fulfilled them. It takes a lot of people to work to make those things happen," Fuda said.

As Fuda retires, he said the county is in great shape. "This county is in the best shape it's ever been in. I believe we have $14 million in the rainy day fund; we have all these ARP funds, the lawsuits that are $22 million a year for 15 years. That's money the mental health board can use, the Sheriff's Department, all the agencies that work with the drug problems in the county."

He says he hopes commissioners can work together as a team to help fulfill promises to the community.

Dennis Malloy, who won November's election against former state representative Michael O'Brien, will fill Fuda's seat.
