Ty Pell will serve out remainder of Caraway’s term –

By Patricia Beech –

The central committee of the Adams County Republican Party has appointed Ty R. Pell to the county commissioner’s seat vacated by  Stephen Caraway earlier this month. Pell was one of 10 candidates vying for the position.
“We are pleased to appoint Ty Pell to the vacancy on the Board of  Commissioners,” said Bill Foster, Chairman of the Republican Central  Committee.  “Ty has an outstanding record of service that will serve  Adams County well.”
“The Republican Party made sure the selection process of a new  Commissioner was open, thorough, and transparent,” said Foster. “The  people of Adams County have entrusted our candidates with nearly all  county offices for generations – and we are humbled by the confidence  they have put in us.”
Pell is a lifelong resident of Adams County and says his passion for  Adams County motivated him to seek the commissioner’s seat.
“I’m very honored to have been chosen by the committee,” said Pell.  “I’m looking forward to working with Commissioner Baldridge and  Commissioner Worley and learning how all the separate county agencies  and institutions like the hospital, GE, and Dayton Power and  Light work  together. I hope to work with them and gain insight into how we can  help them to generate more jobs in the county.”
Pell’s term of service began Monday Aug.22 and lasts until Jan. 2017.  During his time in office he says he hopes to bring his experience in  development to the Commissioner’s Board. “As a developer I’ve been  involved in projects that worked well in local counties like Highland, Brown, Scioto, Pike, and Mason, and I believe those ideas would work  in Adams County as well.”
Pell is a strong advocate for expanding the county’s infrastructure,  and says “It’s difficult to bring development to the county without having a stable infrastructure in place.”
He cites the CIC development along St. Rt. 41 in West Union as an  example of what happens when infrastructure is in place to support  development.
“The community put that project together and now we have Columbus  Industries, and two or three businesses there, a medical facility, a  $10 million ODOT  garage, as well as two or three more businesses  getting ready to locate in that area,” he said.  “If we can do that in  Winchester,  Manchester, Seaman, Peebles, we can see job growth. I  think thats my expertise, that’s what I can do. I can push that agenda  along while I’m serving on this board.”
Hart Wallingford of the Republican Central Committee said he believed  both Pell and Baldridge  were the perfect candidates for the open Commissioner positions. “Now that the Central Committee has completed  its work, Adams County has two fine Republican County Commissioners in Brian Baldridge and Ty Pell. Both have the experience to move Adams  County forward.”
