We should know who will fill an empty Hancock County Commissioner’s seat by the end of the day. The Hancock County Republican Central Committee is holding a meeting tonight to interview the candidates. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in Findlay City Council chambers. The seat opened when former Commissioner Phil Riegle accepted an appointment to be the county prosecutor.
Since Riegle is a Republican, the GOP gets to pick the replacement for his term. Local GOP chair Jim Baker tells the Courier he hasn’t told committee members who the candidates are. He added, “we’re trying to be fair with the candidates and the committee.”
Each candidate has three minutes to make a presentation to the committee. They’ll answer questions from committee members after that. The candidate with the majority of the votes from the committee wins the nomination.
