County Commissioners from around Ohio spent their day Monday in Columbus for the Annual Winter Meeting of the County Commissioners Association of Ohio, with one local commissioner being elected to serve on the state association board.

Pickaway County Commissioner Brian Stewart was elected to the post, while only in his first full year as a Pickaway County Commissioner.

Stewart says being on the association board will help bring attention to what area counties are doing to others around the state, as well as highlight the challenges southern Ohio counties experience.
