The Wheeling Human Rights Commission has a new chairman
At Tuesday’s meeting, Commission member Frank Calabrese accepted his nomination from Vice Chairman Loma Nevels, followed by an unanimous vote by commission members.
“I have spent a lot of time in my life serving groups that serve people,” said Calabrese. “This is a crown jewel, if I may. I will continue to do that. I will continue to be a team player. I will continue to be open to ideas on how to engage the community.”
Calabrese will be taking over for Steve Novotney, who stepped down from the position after complaints about posts he made on social media.
Wheeling Mayor Glen Elliot will appoint the remaining vacant seat.
The next Wheeling Human Rights Commission meeting will be held on February 19.
