Board member resigns to take job in state government

Mike Kahoe has resigned from the Revere Schools Board of Education, effective Feb. 27, to accept the position of program manager in the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation.

“I ran for school board in 2019 to serve our community and expand opportunities for all Revere students,’’ Kahoe said in a prepared statement. “I ran on a platform to increase transparency in our district. After three years, I am proud to say I’ve fulfilled that promise.

“Board meeting videos are now available online, my board meeting notes are viewed by hundreds of community members, and I’ve met with countless individuals to address their concerns.

The objective of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation is to connect Ohio’s business, training and education communities to build a skilled, productive and purposeful workforce. Lt. Governor Jon Husted serves as director of the agency.

“Among other things, the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation helps companies upskill their workforce, offers low-income Ohioans free job training and incentivizes Ohio companies to offer internships to Ohioans in high school and college,” Kahoe said.

“I want to sincerely thank the Revere community,’’ Kahoe added. “You trusted me with your most precious asset, your children. I hope I have made you proud.” ∞
