With the unfortunate passing of Ashland County Commissioner Kim Edwards in late February, nominee's were taken by the Ashland Republican Committee Tuesday afternoon to fill the vacant role.

Former County Auditor Phil Leibolt would receive the only nomination for the position and was unanimously elected to fill the unexpired term.

Fellow Ashland County Commissioners Barb Queer and Mike Welch believe his 14 year involvement as a county official will help make the transition very seamless. Queer says Leibolt's knowledge of the budget will be very useful while "times are lean".

Leibolt thinks his prior experience will help him "hit the ground running", having already established relationships with each elected official in the county. Leibolt retired in December of 2012 and says he is beginning to enjoy retirement, but is happy to help the county fill their need.

He will fill Edwards unexpired term through the end of this year but says he has no plans of running for re- election.
