Geauga County commissioner appointment update

After learning some new information about the process to replace Geauga County Commissioner Bill Young, who retired June 30, here is the latest info we have:

The Geauga County Republican Party meets Tuesday night to appoint a commissioner to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Commissioner Bill Young.

Because Young’s resignation was effective June 30, it occurs more than 56 days before the Nov. 6 election this year for state and county officers.

According to Ohio Revised Code, that means there will need to be an election Nov. 6 to fill Young’s unexpired term, which ends Dec. 31, 2014.

So if the appointed commissioner wants to continue to serve the remainder of the term, he or she will have to win in the November election.
