Franklin Twp. picks new administrator to replace outgoing Stivers

New leader Cordrey is a township trustee elsewhere in Warren County

A Hamilton Twp. trustee has been appointed as the new administrator of Franklin Twp. in Warren County.

Darryl Cordrey II, who resides in Morrow, was selected Monday by the Franklin Twp. trustees.

Tracy Stivers is leaving Franklin Twp. government after seven years as administrator and 12 years total, to take a new job with the Warren County Workforce Development Board. Stivers’ last day is Friday.

Cordrey said he applied because he wanted to obtain a professional position that will allow him to grow his skills in leadership and communication in the public sector.
