Erie MetroParks’ newest commissioner is already familiar with the district’s budget, staff and all the legal problems.

Common Pleas Court Judge Roger Binette appointed Randy Glovinsky to become MetroParks’ newest commissioner this week.

“He just asked me if I wanted to be one, and I said ‘of course, it would be an honor,’” Glovinsky said.
The position became vacant after former commissioner Micah Vawters resigned on Friday for a new job in Kentucky.

MetroParks commissioners work for free and don’t receive any funds from taxpayers for their service.

Last week, Glovinsky ended his reign as the district’s chief of safety and security — a position he worked in for a little less than a year.

He accepted a position with M&M Investigative Services. The private investigation agency is co-owned by Greg Majoy, the former Erie County Drug Task Force leader.
