COLUMBUS — The County Commissioners Association of Ohio (CCAO) has announced Shelby County Commissioner Julie Ehemann has been selected to serve as first vice president of the 2018 CCAO Board of Directors.
“Advancing effective county government is part of CCAO’s mission, and I’m honored to continue to be part of a leadership team that works to achieve that,” Ehemann said. “From replacing outdated voting equipment to finding a solution to offset lost Medicaid MCO sales tax revenue, counties are facing a number of challenges. Through CCAO, we are 88 counties working together as one voice, and I’m proud to be a part of an association that can have that voice be heard at the Ohio Statehouse to address those issues.”
Ehemann has been a CCAO board member since 2014. She serves on the association’s Jobs, Economic Development & Infrastructure and the Justice and Public Safety Committees as well as the Water Quality Task Force, and she was the 2nd vice president on the 2017 CCAO Executive Committee. She also co-chaired a Lobbying Task Force to engage members in the lobbying strategy on the state budget. She was elected first vice president of the CCAO Board of Directors on Dec. 11 by her peers at their annual Winter Conference in Columbus, Ohio.
“Commissioner Ehemann is a strong advocate for counties. She freely shares her time and expertise with CCAO and for that I am extremely thankful,” said CCAO Executive Director Suzanne Dulaney. “I am very pleased we will continue to work together to strengthen counties and therefore create a stronger Ohio.”
The County Commissioners Association of Ohio advances effective county government for Ohio through legislative advocacy, education and training, technical assistance and research, quality enterprise service programs, and greater citizen awareness and understanding of county government.
