Proud Begins Fourth Term as Clermont County Commissioner

Batavia, Ohio. Swearing-in ceremonies are scheduled at 10 a.m. this morning at the Clermont County Administration Building (101 E. Main Street) for Clermont County Commissioner, Bob Proud.

Proud is about to begin his fourth term as a Clermont County Commissioner.

The oath of office will be administered by Congressman Rob Portman, a close friend of Proud's. The bible used in the ceremonies will be held by Proud's mother, Beulah Proud.

"This is a bittersweet day for me," says Proud. "My dad died just before the November election. His memory will be with me today."

Proud begins his fourth term with goals focused on providing the best service possible to meet the needs of Clermont County citizens.

"During my campaign for re-election I pledged that the Commissioners office would be more accessible," says Proud. "I am in support of town meetings in every township and village. I am also planning to back a move to hold at least one Commissioners meeting a month in the evening. I am hopeful that will allow more citizens to attend the meetings and let us know what issues most concern them."
