Tiffin, Ohio — During a Tiffin City Council meeting Monday, at-large Councilman Jeff Rhoades announced his resignation.

Rhoades delivered a statement to Council: “At the beginning of March, I made a career change and accepted a new position in a supervisory capacity. It has been the best decision for me professionally and for my family, but unfortunately, it has created a schedule conflict with my role as a Tiffin City Councilmember.

“In the past weeks, I have struggled to find a way to both be present for this new position and to serve in my role here on Tiffin City Council. And while it was never my intention to do so, I unfortunately will be tendering my resignation from Council as of today. The members of City of Tiffin and our constituents deserve someone who can commit to this role. I cannot, in good faith, continue to do so at this time.

“I chose to run for a spot on Tiffin City Council because of my profound respect for Mayor Aaron Montz, City Administration and every member of Council. All of you put in a tremendous amount of work and dedication to make our community a wonderful place. It has been an honor to be on City Council with all of you, and I hope in the future I may have the opportunity to again serve this community.”

Rhoades joined Tiffin City Council in January, having been elected in the November 2021 general election.

Because he ran as a Republican, Rhoades’ vacant seat will be filled by a nomination from the Seneca County Republican Central Committee.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz commented: “It has been a pleasure working with Jeff during his time on council. I hope him all the best with his endeavors and hope to work with him again in the future.”
