NWCA board officers retain posts

The officers for the Northwest Civic Association's board of directors will continue on in their present roles.

John Ehlers remains president for 2013-14, Greg Marietti the vice president and Mark Krietemeyer the treasurer.

Kyle Hartman, who took over as secretary from Jeanne Ashby in April, also will hold on to that post.

The officers were chosen during a closed-doors meeting that followed the regular monthly meeting early in May.

In spite of its drain on his time, Ehlers said last week that he was more than happy to sign up for another term as board president.

"I'm very honored," Ehlers said.

"There are lots of issues in Northwest Columbus and at times it seems like it deserves a full-time professional, but as volunteers we do the best we can and we get lots of help from residents and members of the organization."
