by Laura Bednar

The Revere Local Schools Board of Education will welcome two new members and one returning member following the Nov. 7 election.

Natalie Rainey (4,807 votes) was the top vote-getter, followed by incumbent Courtney Stein at 4,486 and newcomer Kasha Brackett at 3,141, according to unofficial results from the Summit County Board of Elections. Incumbents Claudia Mendat Hower (3,096 votes) and Diana Sabitsch (2,820) failed in their re-election bid.

The Bath parks levy replacement and increase passed 2,813 to 2,174. The levy replaces the existing .75-mill levy and adds an increase of .35 mills for a total of 1.1 mills for each $1 of taxable value. This equates to $39 for each $100,000 of appraised value per the Summit County Fiscal Office with collections starting in 2025.

Incumbent Elaina Goodrich retained her seat on the Bath Township Board of Trustees with 2,550 votes, defeating opponent Richard J. Bradner (1,630 votes). Jen Hardin ran unopposed for township fiscal officer and received 2,871 votes. ∞
