Columbus City Council appoints two new members
(Posted Jan. 11, 2011)
Both were selected from a field of nearly 50 applicants and will immediately begin their duties as council members.
“From the very onset of the application process, I was impressed with the quality and caliber of all who applied to fill the vacancies on council,” said Ginther. “On behalf of my colleagues, I would like to thank those who submitted resumes and took part in the interview process. I am certain that council members Mills and Klein will serve with distinction as we work to create an even better community to live and raise our families.”
Klein most recently served as the deputy chief of legal services at the Ohio Attorney General’s office. He also worked as special assistant United States attorney for the Southern District of Ohio. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from The Ohio State University and his law degree from Capital University. He resides in Italian Village in Columbus.
Mills has been president and CEO of the St. Stephen’s Community House since 2006. She earned her bachelor’s degree in social work from Cleveland State University and her master’s degree in social administration from Case Western Reserve University. She resides on Columbus’ northeast side.
Their annual salaries as council members will be $42,414.
