Booth ends 5-year stint serving on City Council



The Cincinnati Enquirer

Paul M. Booth ended his five-year career on Cincinnati City Council on Wednesday, resigning to take an appointment to the State Personnel Board of Review.

Y. Laketa Cole, a former Booth staffer, is expected to be sworn in this weekend as his replacement.

Booth, a low-profile Democratic councilman who chaired the Neighborhood and Public Works Committee, prided himself in introducing more resolutions than any other council member. True to form, he brought in a resolution Wednesday honoring the Bengals cheerleaders for their good work entertaining troops overseas.

Mayor Charlie Luken called Booth "a gentleman of the highest order" who conducted himself with "great dignity" during his time on City Council.
