Marsilio to resign Portage commissioner's seat


Portage County Commissioner Tommie Jo Marsilio confirmed today that she intends to resign her elected office in late January. Marsilio said she has taken a job with the Ohio Turnpike Commission which starts Jan. 24.

Marsilio, a Republican, was elected in 2010, defeating Democrat Vicki Kline

Marsilio took the seat of Democrat Chuck Keiper, whom Kline defeated in the primary. She was the first Republican elected to the county board of commissioners since Janet Esposito in 1992.

  • What a great Christmas present for the people of Portage County! Good riddance! She was a joke as commissioner. Guess the sheriff is going to have to stay within his budget now like everyone else has to do.
