Gogebic County MTA meeting features departing membersning that the total years represented two different stints in charge. "I've enjoyed it most of the time."

He said he has appreciated the past couple of years less, owing to the current COVID-19 pandemic and Marenisco's loss of the Ojibway Correctional Facility.

Nevertheless, he concluded, "It's been a pleasure to work with you people."

Other MTA members who are leaving the group include Wakefield Township Treasurer Joan Dalman, Erwin Township Treasurer Sylvia Mussatti, and Ironwood Township Trustee Marlene Saari.

MTA Treasurer Hope Tarnaski, who remains in her position, expressed appreciation for departing members.

"It's been a true pleasure to work with you," said Tarnaski, who also serves as a trustee for Bessemer Township. She added that it takes "a special breed of people" to serve the public as MTA members do. "You really are invisible heroes," she concluded.

Voting for new officers will take place at the next MTA meeting in December, which also will feature a Christmas party.

Erwin Township Supervisor Larry Grimsby kidded to the Daily Globe that anyone who does not attend that meeting might learn later that he or she has been appointed the new chair.
