Tiffin, Ohio — Seneca County Commissioner Anthony “Tony” Paradiso has announced his plans to seek re-election in the upcoming 2024 election.

Paradiso was first appointed as a commissioner by the Seneca County Republican Central Committee in July 2019 and was elected to a four-year term in January 2021. He currently serves as the president of the Seneca County Commissioners.

“I’m very excited to continue to serve the citizens of Seneca County,” said Paradiso. “The commissioners have a lot of momentum and a lot of projects we’re working on, and I’m excited to continue that work.”

During his tenure as commissioner, Paradiso has been instrumental in the passage of the countywide EMS levy, which will provide ambulance service to residents across the county. He has also pushed for a rural broadband study and capital improvements to county-owned buildings, while being fiscally responsible with county funds, according to a press release from his campaign.

“As a commissioner, it’s important to balance the county budget and be responsible in all of your decisions involving taxpayers’ funds,” said Paradiso.

In recent months, Paradiso has worked with his fellow commissioners to address concerns about the Sunny Farms Landfill and to ensure proper oversight. He believes that it is essential to listen to the concerns of residents, especially those in the west-end of the county, according to the release.

“We’re working hard to ensure their concerns are heard and properly addressed,” he said.

Paradiso holds a Bachelor of Science in Education from Bowling Green State University and an Associate Degree in Science from the University of Cincinnati. Prior to his appointment as commissioner, he was a co-owner of BAS Broadcasting, a company that owns 10 radio stations.
