County Commissioner Association of Ohio

By Gene Krebs. Last week I was asked to speak at the County Commissioner  Association of Ohio annual conference on governance reform.  I was told that I should expect only 40 chairs to be filled, it was closer to 100.  Commissioner Dan Troy led off and gave the background for the Local Government Reform Commission he co-chaired.  I then presented a slide show that illustrated the long term fiscal problems in Ohio and at the county level.  The CCAO board took several positions at the conference that were very strong on governance reform.  I expect them to work with us to make Ohio a better place.
