Rantala leaves…Cirino and Young in mourning

job vacancy 2Oh, no…say it ain’t so…Mark Rantala is leaving Lake County….check that, he is leaving as Executive Director of the Lake County Port Authority.  That is the entity that promotes why people should live in Lake County.  Our population count will not be impacted when Rantala leaves, because he lives in Rocky River.

Commissioners Cirino and Young were among Mr. Rantala’s biggest supporters; they had no problem with Rantala and the Port’s Board of Directors not creating a budget for the Better Flip project, and subsequently spending at least $299,000 (double their original resolution amount of $150,000) on the Willowick bungalow.  When Young and Cirino run for their next public office, if they ever state that they are “fiscal conservatives”, or “fiscal hawks”, just say…”Oh yea, really?”..and keep on walking away.  Malfeasance has a price.

Executive Director – Lake County Ohio Port and Economic Development Authority (The Port)

Date of Posting:  December 2, 2019                                                   Closing Date:  January 10, 2020

The Board of Directors of the Lake County Ohio Port and Economic Development Authority (The Port) is looking to fill the opening for Executive Director. Lake County, Ohio is located along Lake Erie on the eastern edge of the Cleveland MSA.

Lake County is home to 230,000 people and is the 11th most populous county in Ohio.  It has a significant presence in the automotive and aerospace supply chains and is home to over 650 manufacturing firms.

The ideal candidate would have a familiarity with the workforce issues of manufacturing. The Port’s primary role is to enhance the economic welfare of the community by fostering, aiding, providing or promoting transportation, economic and business development, housing, recreation, governmental operations, culture, research, and education.  The Port promotes projects that will provide for the creation of jobs and employment opportunities for the people residing in Lake County.

(LFC Comments:  While we were reading the job description, we could not help but wonder about the 650 manufacturing firms in Lake County.  We are working on some articles about Lake County Manufacturing.  It is projected that there will be a 10,000 shortage in workers for this segment of the Lake County economy.  How do they secure enough workers to meet the marketplace demands?

It is really a sad commentary on Lake County’s political leadership and Lakeland Community College’s administration that they cannot get together and develop a first class, manufacturing training facility at Lakeland. 

Why not spend funds to help the Lake County manufacturers rather than the ill-advised plans to build dorms to house 300 students.  To the Board of Directors at Lakeland, – you are in charge of a community college, why not develop programs that are helpful to a very important part of our community?  Why do the manufacturers have to work with Lorain Community College for their workers?

To Commissioners Young and Hamerchek, – we ask that you get involved to help Lake County manufacturers.  We know that you are focused on the wineries, but we believe that you can handle more than one task at a time.)
