Mental Health Board Votes to Terminate Joe Trollian’s Contract

The Richland County Mental Health and Recovery Board voted 11-1 to fire longtime executive director Joe Troliano after about an hour of executive session Monday night.

At 17:30 at the agency, 87 E. First St.

Ron Moton cast the lone no vote and one other board member was absent.

At Trolian’s request, the media was allowed to remain in the boardroom instead of Trolian presenting his side of the story behind closed doors in an executive session.

Trolian said he was “disheartened” by the board’s action, having devoted the last 20 years of his life to the RCMH&RS board and the last 16 years as executive director.

“I’ve done everything I can to support and expand mental health addiction treatment services for this community,” Trolian said.

“The charges I’m facing here today are completely baseless,” he said. “I have always taken the utmost care in carrying out my duties as ethically as possible.” I have never used my professional authority or influence for personal gain or any other improper motive.”
