Councilman says he’s off to be auditor


LORAIN — Councilman Craig Snodgrass, D-8th, announced Monday’s meeting will likely be his last as a councilman. He expects to replace Lorain County Auditor Mark Stewart, who retires Dec. 31, and cannot hold both positions.

Snodgrass, deputy county auditor, announced last month that he would not seek a fifth term. He took office in 2006.

Paul Adams, Lorain Democratic Party chairman and Lorain County Board of Elections director, said by phone after the meeting that he hopes the 8th Ward precinct committee members will appoint a replacement before the next Council meeting next month. The replacement will serve through the end of next year.
