Former Willoughby Hills Council Vice President John Plecnik won the race for County Commissioner this month in a landslide. John won 58.59% of the vote to his opponent’s, Adam Dudziak’s, 41.41% of the vote.
“I give this victory to God, and I promise to work hard every day as your public servant,” John said.
John previously was appointed to the seat vacated by Jason Wulliger. Beginning in January, John will take over the seat currently held by Mark Tyler, who was appointed after Ron Young stepped down this summer.
John is the first Willoughby Hills resident ever to be elected to serve as County Commissioner. Recently, former Councilman Kevin Malecek was appointed as Commissioner, but failed to win at the polls, losing handily to John Hamercheck.
