The Ontario County Board of Supervisors held its organizational meeting last week, electing new leaders within the county’s governing body.
Longtime Chairman, Victor Supervisor Jack Marren did not seek another term after serving 10 years in the leadership post. That was a decision he ultimately made in 2022.
That allowed West Bloomfield Supervisor Todd Campbell to become the next chair of the Ontario County Board. Seneca Supervisor Drew Wickham will serve as vice chair.
Marren isn’t going anywhere, though. He will remain in-office, focusing on Victor-related issues, and serving as a resource to the County’s new leadership team. He called it an ‘adjustment’, but one that was necessary as he wanted to slow down.
Campbell says he wants to provide the same level of leadership and guidance that Marren did for Ontario County. “I don’t see any significant changes in how I intend to work as the chair of the board in comparison to how Jack worked as the chair of the board,” he said after being chosen by his peers.
He’s been a supervisor for a decade. Campbell says there are an array of issues he’d like to tackle as chair, and that 2023 will be a busy one.
