Fire Union Elects First Woman To Board
Marc Monahan, president of the Cincinnati Fire Fighters Union Local 48, was sworn in again as president on Valentine's Day. Also re-elected: Vice President Bobby Mengler, and Joe Gunnewick, secretary/treasurer.
But Monahan's press release announces one change: the election of Shana Johnson as recording secretary. She defeated Reggie Hocker and Matt Alter.
She is the first woman elected to the board.
Here's what Monahan said about her: "We are very pleased to have such a talented and dedicated individual elected to the executive board. Recording Secretary-Elect Shana Johnson has been a very active and committed member of this local for years. She brings a vast amount of knowledge to our team."
Johnson said she looks forward to taking on her new responsibilities.
