Board of Directors
The Board of Directors for the LGBTQ COALITION OF ASHTABULA COUNTY, INC.
is the legal and governing body for the organization.
Bill Daywalt (he, him, his), works in the mental health field. He is the Pastor of the Kingsville Presbyterian Church, an LGBTQ welcoming congregation. Bill is a single parent and lives in Ashtabula County. He is also an open and proud gay man. "I feel that LGBTQ+ people have many needs that are not being met in this area and intend to work hard with the coalition to create an open, welcoming and safe environment for our community in Ashtabula County. I am open to do whatever I can to promote inclusivity and acceptance."
AJ Petro (she, her, hers) is an LGBTQ+ ally and has been with the Coalition since its inception, assisting Bill Daywalt in making the vision of a coalition a reality. AJ is employed as the Adult Services Coordinator at the Kingsville Public Library where she enjoys creating and facilitating fun and educational programs for adults and families. She currently serves as the coalition’s vice president.
Michael (he, him, his) is a lifelong county resident and is a Geneva High School class of '95 graduate. He is a local theater actor/director and singer. He has always loved the stage and creating characters, and that's how MONA LOTZ (she, her, hers) came to life. Mona is the mouthpiece for Michael. "she" gives him the strength and courage to say "I AM A GAY CHRISTIAN!!!" and help others be proud to say the same! Mona has performed all over the east coast and has spoken in local churches giving her message of hope that GOD LOVES ALL OF US! Mona is the hostess of Pride of Ashtabula County and has her own youtube channel called LOTZ OF TEA.
