Magby reappointed to CRB board

City commissioners on Tuesday reappointed Hayward Magby to a second four-year term on the volunteer Citizen Review Board, which scrutinizes reports of police misconduct.

Magby, 64, a counselor at AIDS Help Inc., received three commissioners' votes Tuesday, beating out Fred Marchak and Perry Frantzman, who each got two votes. Magby was nominated by the Interfaith Ministerial Alliance.

His wife of 40 years, the Rev. Gwendolyn Magby, wrote his letter of reference for his application.

Hayward Magby, who is black, told commissioners he has "tried to provide some cultural diversity for the board."
