Daga is a certified public accountant and has lived in Pepper Pike for about 40 years. He currently serves on the board of the Pepper Pike Civic League, a nonprofit that promotes good government.
Council approved Daga at a special meeting Dec. 6. He will finish Mayland’s remaining year on council.
I’ve had the pleasure of being acquainted with Mano because he has been going to Council meetings for at least a few years now, including when I was on Council from 2010-2013. He also is an officer with the Pepper Pike Civic League. The article notes his interest in fiscal matters:
What he brings to the table: With over 40 years of experience in accounting, he hopes to focus on the financial vitality of Pepper Pike.
“We have to find a more cost-effective way of doing things,” Daga said. “We have to cut costs but still provide great services.”
What he thinks will be the biggest challenge: The suburbs were hit hard by the state’s elimination of the estate tax, he said. This created financial problems and fixing them won’t be easy.
