Jason Schaumleffel was sworn into office on Wednesday afternoon at Muskingum County Court House. Schaumleffel is joining the board during a time of position changesÂ but is excited about whatâ€™s to come.
â€œItâ€™s a very unique situation where we have three board members being replaced and also because we have a new perspective being brought to the board. We have union contracts and some Ohio credit plus issues coming up. We also have a lot of internal issues that need to be taken care of. Itâ€™s going to be challenging and a lot of responsibility, but I think we can handle it,â€ Schaumleffel said.
He said that this is just the beginning for him and that he plans on becoming more involved in the community in the years to come.
â€œIn the long run I would like to be a County Administrator. Iâ€™d like to see myself stay in the county and help promote it. I really want to see this community grow and develop. That is my goal,â€ he said.
Soon Schaumleffel plans on visiting local high schools to talk to students about registering to vote and how to be more involved with their communityâ€™s government.
