DOVER (WJER) (August 11, 2023) – The city’s council clerk for the past 15 years is soon going to have a vote on City Council.

The Tuscarawas County Republican Party Central Committee Thursday appointed Julie Leggett to fill a vacant council-at-large position. She’ll be sworn in Aug. 21.

Leggett has been clerk of council for 15 years, first appointed by then council President Tim Tarulli In 2008.

She takes over an at-large seat vacated by Joe Sciarretti at the end of June. Sciarretti had been appointed a year earlier after Justin Perkowski vacated the seat to take over as council president.

Perkowski will appoint a new council clerk to replace Leggett.

Leggett is also on the school board meeting agenda this month. The board will consider hiring her as student services secretary.

In other news involving elected dover officials, four school board incumbents have filed petitions to run in November. Three of those are on the ballot in a regular election cycle – Kyle Stemple, Michael Studer, and John Maxwell. Anne Bruno is on the ballot after being appointed to a seat earlier this summer. One challenger took out a petition to run but didn’t file it before the deadline.
