COLUMBUS — Youngstown Mayor Jamael Tito Brown has been appointed to serve on the board of directors of the Ohio Mayors Alliance, which is a bipartisan coalition of mayors in more than two dozen of Ohio’s largest cities.
Brown has served as the mayor of Youngstown and member of the Ohio Mayors Alliance since 2018.
“It’s an honor to be appointed to the Ohio Mayors Alliance Board of Directors,” Brown said in a news release “The work that this organization has done to support our communities during this difficult year has been incredibly impactful. It has also given mayors a great forum to support each other, share innovative ideas and promote the importance of bipartisan cooperation.”
“We’re thrilled to have Mayor Brown join the board, and we know he will be a great addition to our bipartisan leadership team,” Findlay Mayor Christina Muryn said. “Mayor Brown’s collaborative approach will be a perfect fit for our continual efforts to build stronger partnerships with state and federal leaders.”
Brown was appointed to serve in the vacancy on the board that was created when Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley announced her candidacy for Ohio governor. Whaley was on the initial steering committee that formed the Ohio Mayors Alliance in 2016. Although she is stepping down from her board position, Whaley will remain a member of the coalition.
In addition to Brown and Muryn, the board also includes Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley, Columbus Mayor Andrew J. Ginther, Kettering Mayor Don Patterson, Lancaster Mayor David Scheffler and Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter.
