WASHINGTON — A handful of Washington County employees were recognized for their years of service to the local government during a supervisor meeting on Tuesday.
County Auditor Dan Widmer said the group’s six members totaled 150 years of experience at the county.
“I’ll just start by saying how important this is, or when you think about it, how much some of these people have given to the county,” he said. “We’re all very grateful for that.”
Widmer said the high numbers reflected well on the local government.
“I think it says a lot, the years of service that some of these people put in,” Widmer said. “‘Thank you’ doesn’t seem adequate.”
Board of Supervisors Chair Richard Young said he was grateful for the county’s staff.
“On behalf of the board, we’d like to thank you all for your years of service to the county,” Young said. “It doesn’t happen a lot anymore because people seem to move from job to job, they don’t stay anywhere long. But from all five of us supervisors, we really want to thank you and appreciate everything you do for the county.”
The recognized employees include:
- Randy Tinnes: 35 years at Sheriff’s office
- Jeff Garrett, 25 years at Treasurer’s office
- Jo Greiner, 25 years at Recorder’s office
- Lori Hobscheidt, 25 years at Public Health
- Christy Tinnes, 20 years at Assessor’s office
- Jason Schlabaugh, 20 years at Sheriff’s office
