Two New Members Join LCCAA Board

posted 7/13/21 -- Two new members have joined LCCAA’s Board of Directors.

Oberlin City Council Member Elizabeth Meadows has been designated to represent that city in the public sector of the board. Elyria attorney Joseph Bott has joined the board as a member of the private sector.

Meadows is retired from a career with the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority and was elected to City Council in November 2019. She previously served on council a number of years ago. During her campaign for council, Meadows pledged to be available and responsive and said she loved working with people.

Bott is a native of Grafton who also serves as a magistrate with the Lorain County Common Pleas Court. He is a graduate of John Carroll University and the Cleveland Marshall College of Law. He also serves on the board of Pathways Counseling and Growth Center in Elyria.

Bott also previously worked as a municipal prosecutor in Elyria and Amherst. As a long-time member of the community, Bott said he understands and values the work done at LCCAA.

Meadows joined the board in March and Bott in April. Both are serving on the board’s fund-raising committee.

By law, LCCAA is required to have a Board made up of equal parts from three different sectors: Public (usually elected officials or their designees), Private (typically members of the business community), and Low-Income (low-income residents or those who serve them).

LCCAA currently has a full, 15- member board which meets monthly.
