March 4, 2013

Batavia, Ohio - Ohio Secretary of State, Jon Husted, visited the Clermont County Board of Elections last month to present the Precinct Election Official Red Carpet Award to Jan Schoellman, a Precinct Election Official (PEO) for over 16 years.  Jan, a retired teacher from Goshen Middle School, was very involved with developing the new Training Video that was used in the Precinct Election Official Instruction Classes prior to the November Election.  Jan said she has found that serving as a PEO is a rewarding way to give something back to her community. 

Bonnie Carlier also received an accommodation for her 20 years of outstanding service and dedication to the Election Process as an employee of the Board of Elections and especially for her work with enlisting and training the Precinct Election Officials (formerly known as Poll Workers) in Clermont County.


Ruth Ann Werner, who retired from the Board of Elections in August 2012 after 24 ½ years, also elected to receive an Accommodation from Secretary Husted for her outstanding service and dedication for her work with the Poll Workers.  Werner was not able to attend, however she will be presented her Accommodation at a later date. 


The Secretary of State commended the Board Members and the entire staff of the Clermont County Board of Elections for their hard work and dedication that was exemplified during the November Presidential Election.  Secretary Husted quoted former OSU Football Coach Woody Hayes when he said, “You win with people,” and the Clermont County Board of Elections has some of the finest people working for it in the state
