William McKinley commemorative event to be held in Niles

Mckinley event Niles

NILES TWP, Ohio (WYTV) – Trumbull County Republicans and Democrats will come together to show support for Niles-born William McKinley.

The two groups will host an event at the memorial in Niles on Sunday, the day before the anniversary of the former president’s death.

The memorial event comes about a week after President Barack Obama decided to rename Mount McKinley to Mount Denali.

County Commissioner Dan Polivka said he received phone calls from concerned citizens in Trumbull County about the name change.

“We just want to invite the community to come out and the elected officials to support William McKinley,” Polivka said.

The commemorative event is set for 2 p.m.
