Thu., 12:30pm: Western Reserve Port Authority board member asked to resign

VIENNA — Western Reserve Port Authority board member Don Hanni called for the resignation of fellow board member Scott Lewis at the board’s special meeting this morning.

Hanni believes Lewis’ meeting with a construction company that did work for the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport shows a conflict of interest. Lewis was not at the meeting and no further discussion of the request was made during the meeting which had been called to approve the sale of a bond for other construction efforts.
