NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – Janet Rizer-Jones was voted the new treasurer for the City of Niles on Wednesday.
She defeated Thomas Harwood for the position by a 7 to 3 precinct committee vote.
Rizer-Jones has been the interim treasurer since Robert Swauger resigned in May. She says working with current city leaders is nothing new.
“I’m familiar with the people and the administration, I’ve worked with them before. Tom previously was a councilman and we worked together at that time.”
Her term as treasurer runs until December 31, 2017.
