EP council candidate
The following East Palestine Village Council candidate bio was inadvertantly omitted from the story published Oct. 22. The other candidates include Douglas Simpson, Thomas Anthony Povenski Jr. and Donald Elzer.
Business owner Jessica Rocco is seeking a village council seat in the November Election. She brings her expertise and success managing her own business and a background establishing a nonprofit organization.
Rocco intends to continue her work as vice president of the East Palestine Park Board. She carries a vision to revitalize the village and unlock potential.
Rocco sees opportunity for growth among businesses, village boards and community by providing fresh ideas with a sense of follow-through. She believes improving the village will benefit younger residents and motivate future generations to stay or return to the village.
Rocco would like village members to know she is also active as a Rotary Soccer Club Coach and was part of the 2021 East Palestine Fair Committee. She strives to bring the same sense of community and well-being invested into her chiropractor office to a position as a member of council.
