TIFFIN — Seneca County Commissioner Shayne Thomas hosted the first “Coffee with a Commissioner” event on Friday at Bailiwicks Coffee Company in Tiffin.
Thomas spoke to a few county residents about several issues for about an hour. In an effort to continue to improve accessibility and transparency, the Seneca County Board of Commissioners has started a series of events entitled “Coffee with a Commissioner.”
Wirth, the owner of Bailiwicks, said she was excited to host the event on Friday.
“Our commissioners do a fantastic job of being available and ensuring transparency,” she said. “It’s an honor to partner with them to create one more avenue for residents of Seneca County to have the opportunity to voice concerns and be heard, learn what is in store for the county, and meet our community leaders face to face.”
Periodically throughout next year, one of the commissioners will take about an hour to share coffee and conversation with constituents across the county at several different sessions. During these sessions, there will be a short presentation and a chance for attendees to ask questions, according to a release.
The next event will be announced soon, but TiffinOhio.net News has learned that it will feature Commissioner Anthony Paradiso and will be hosted at the Fostoria Learning Center.
Future events will also be hosted by Bailiwicks but will be located in areas across the county. Bailiwicks coffee will be available at those events on location. The locations and dates for future sessions will be announced soon.
