TIFFIN — Candidate for Seneca County Commissioner and current Tiffin Councilman Tyler “Ty” Shuff says he’s ready to bring Tiffin’s “tremendous growth” to the entire county.

“As a lifelong Seneca County resident I have been fortunate to work with many people to make our community a better place to work, live, and play. I have loved being part of the tremendous growth the City of Tiffin has accomplished during my time on City Council. While I look forward to being part of Tiffin’s continued progress, I am ready to help bring the momentum countywide,” Shuff said in a Facebook post Wednesday.

Shuff is running against Adams Township trustee and farmer William “Bill” Frankart for the Republican nomination in the March primary election. Current Seneca County Commissioner Shayne Thomas is running for state representative in a heated three-way Republican primary.

In addition to expanding growth throughout the county, Shuff says improving safety services in another top priority of his campaign.

“I will continue to work closely with Fire, EMS, and Law Enforcement to ensure the safety of Seneca County,” Shuff said, adding that he was “privileged” to sign legislation creating a safety resource officer for the local school system. “I believe this makes our school system safer and shows a good face for our local law enforcement as well as someone the kids can look up to and speak with about potential problems. This teaches our youth that law enforcement is here to help.”

Shuff announced on Thursday that his campaign has distributed all 400 yard signs from his first order, and that he is planning to order more.

“It really takes a village to make any campaign successful,” Shuff said on Thursday.

Shuff, 34, graduated from Columbian High School and attended Terra State Community College for Business Management and Marketing. He has served on Tiffin City Council since he was first elected at age 23.

William “Bill” Frankart has been a grain farmer since 1989. A Clyde High School graduate, Frankart has served three terms as Adams Township trustee. He was previously a Seneca County Soil & Water Board member, and a member of the Seneca County Regional Planning Board.

The primary election will take place March 17.
