Ross County Recorder Kathy Dunn, administered the oath of office to Tom Spetnagel, Jr. as the new Ross County Democratic Party Chair.
Spetnagel stated, "Now that it's official, let me ask: are you someone who follows politics but has never gotten involved locally? We WANT you on board! Are you a lapsed Democrat who used to be active and dropped out? We WANT you back! Have you voted Republican in the past, but find Donald Trump's behavior at times to be unfitting of a world leader?
"There's room for you in our party! No matter where you stand, expect to hear from me.
"Over 20 years ago, Tim Barnhart laid the foundation for a strong local Party. I am determined to make it even stronger.”
