Timothy Steitz wins Board special election

Timothy C. Steitz has won a special election for the remaining retiree representative seat on the OPERS Board of Trustees.

The seat became open in November when former trustee John Maurer passed away, and current OPERS retirees voted in the special election during the first quarter of 2018. Current OPERS Board members will certify the results of the election at their April meeting, and Mr. Steitz's term will begin in May and run through 2021.

Mr. Steitz is a former OPERS associate and was assistant director of investments at the School Employees Retirement System of Ohio. Before that, he was an assistant auditor for the Auditor of State. He currently teaches accounting and investments at Ohio Wesleyan University, located in his home county of Delaware.
