Greene County commission honors board member voted out of office

Greene County commissioners honored parting board member Alan Anderson during their last meeting of the year.

Anderson is finishing his third term and will be replaced by County Treasurer Dick Gould, who won the Republican nomination in the May primary and garnered the most votes for the seat in November.

Commissioners passed a resolution Thursday to thank Anderson for his service.

“During his time in office, Alan served on numerous boards ... while Alan focused on the greater good for the county, there were several areas that received a little more attention such as workforce development/labor and education, Chautauqua, farm bureau and all aspects of higher education,” the resolution reads.

Anderson initially took office in January 2007 and during his 12 years he served with former commissioners Rick Perales, Marilyn Reid and Ralph Harper.

Gould is scheduled to be sworn-in as commissioner today by Governor-elect Mike DeWine at the historic courthouse in Xenia.

Commissioners are expected to make a temporary appointment to fill Gould’s current position as county treasurer. The county’s GOP central committee will then appoint the person who will serve out Gould’s remaining term as treasurer, which ends in 2021.
