Batavia, Ohio - The Clermont County Democratic Party's Central Committee voted unanimously on Saturday, July 14th to endorse Len Harding of Milford as its candidate in the November 6th Election for county commissioner.
Harding will vie for the seat on the county Board of Commissioners that was left vacant by Commissioner Archie Wilson who resigned suddenly amid accusations of illegal activities related to drugs and prostitution.
"I am both flattered and honored to be given this opportunity to serve the residents of Clermont County," Harding told the central committee members. He added that he intended to wage an aggressive campaign and propose ideas and debate issues that are important to the county and its taxpayers.
"After a series of unfortunate and embarrassing incidents involving elected officials in Clermont County, I believe Len Harding will be viewed as intelligent, reliable and will bring the highest level of integrity possible to this post," commented Dave Lane, chairman of the Clermont County Democratic Party. Lane added that he has been approached by numerous residents from both parties, asking for a "solid and honest" candidate who will offer an independent view and provide responsible leadership on the board.
Harding, a retired consultant, technical writer and historian resides in Milford with his wife Sandra.. He is the Father of four adult children (1 natural, 3 step), grandfather of three, and great-grandfather of three toddlers. His decades-long commitment to community projects and involvement with established boards and commissions provides him with a wealth of experience and insight into the everyday issues facing Clermont County
