BOARDMAN, Ohio -- The CEO and administrator of the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation, Steve Buehrer did not arrive at Mr. Anthony’s Friday in a sleigh drawn by eight reindeer nor was he attired in a red suit with white fur trim.
Nonetheless, because he brought a check for $42.974 million for businesses and local governments in Mahoning and Trumbull County, Buehrer was treated like Santa Claus. The president and CEO of the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber, Tom Humphries, was on hand to have his picture taken with Buehrer and the oversized “symbolic check.”
