To the citizens of Wood County:
Twenty years ago this month I began my service as your Wood County commissioner. It has been a tremendous honor to be a part of Wood County’s success over the years.
This past Tuesday, I celebrated my 76th birthday. I have decided it is time to complete my service as your commissioner, spend more time with my wife Sharon and family, and possibly look for other ways to be involved in supporting our communities. In this regard I have decided to retire effective July 24.
I leave office pleased that Wood County’s economy is one of the strongest in Ohio. We have a good jobs climate, an excellent bond rating and our county financial condition is as healthy as it has been in many years.
I thank the people of Wood County for allowing me to serve them.
