ODNR employee Rob Hamilton oversees election

Voters found it difficult to pick only two of the three highly qualified candidates for the two seats open on the Board of Supervisors. The public election was held Thursday September 18 at our office 1404 Goodale Boulevard, Suite 100, Columbus,Ohio. The winners were David Donofrio and John Moorehead.

Franklin Soil and Water director Jennifer Fish spoke recently about the Supervisor election,

“Every year our election for Board of Supervisors is a great opportunity to bring new energy and experience to our board of supervisors. The risk however is that we also may lose knowledgeable and outstanding board members in the process. Such is the cycle of things.

We are excited to have David Donofrio returning to our board of supervisors with his energy and enthusiasm for our work. We are also excited to welcome newcomer John Morehead who is an environmental engineer. His background and interest will help him come up to speed quickly as a board supervisor. Read More
