NEWTON FALLS, Ohio (WKBN) – Trumbull County GOP Chair Kenneth Kline resigned from his position Sunday night.

Kline said he felt it was time to move on, calling it an “end of a season.” He said it was for personal reasons.

“In my heart, I’ve always seen myself leading our county party through the primary and I didn’t know after that,” he said.

The resignation is effective immediately. He says the party’s vice chair, Bob Carr, will serve as chair for the time being.

The central committee has 30 days to vote in a new chair.

Kline was re-elected as chair on June 10 for a four-year term. He beat out Martha Yoder for the position.

Kline also serves as the mayor of Newton Falls.
