John Morroni named County Commission Chair

At the Dec. 6 Board of County Commissioners meeting, board members named Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni chairman for 2012. He replaces outgoing chair Susan Latvala.

Commissioner Ken Welch was selected as vice chair.

Morroni has represented single-member District 6 on the commission since 2000, previously holding office in the Florida House of Representatives (1992-2000). He served as commission chairman in 2005. He and his family live in Feather Sound.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge,” said Morroni, noting that several important concerns will be up before the board during the coming year, including public safety issues as the board continues to explore ways of streamlining and improving the efficiency of Pinellas County’s emergency medical services (EMS) system.

Morroni will first hoist the gavel as board chairman at the Jan. 10, 2012, Board of County Commissioners meeting, the first board meeting of the new year.
