Board Installs New Members

At its recent meeting the Ohio Council 8 Executive board installed new officers to fill vacancies left by retirements and attrition.

Eric Clemons, President of Local 1027 Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority was elected as a Cincinnati Regional Vice president, and Ann Sulfridge, a Dayton Regional Vice President since 2011 and President of AFSCME Local 101, was installed as Ohio Council 8 Recording Secretary. 

In addition, Tracey Poellnitz was sworn as the child care representative, and Juanita Griffin, who served as a Cleveland Regional Vice President until retiring in 2003, joined the board as a retiree representative.  She replaces long-time union leader Cenia Willis, who died late last year.  Like the trustees, the retiree representatives have a voice, but do not vote.

“I firmly believe Ohio Council 8 has the best leadership of any labor organization in the state,” said Council 8 President John A. Lyall.  “These capable and experienced leaders will be great additions to the board and join a group of committed individuals who work to keep our union strong.” he said.
