Mirroring the national trend, the Republican Party in Adams County swept all countywide contested races in the Nov. 2 general election. The GOP landslide was ranked as the No. 7 story of the year in voting by employees of the Decatur Daily Democrat.
Republican candidates posted upset victories over three sitting Democrats, held onto two other contested seats, and filled a pending vacancy in the county sheriff’s office.
It's that time of year again: for appointments by the Adams County Commissioners.
At Monday's meeting, the three elected executives voted unanimously to rename 23 people to local positions and to name two new people to other posts.
Both new appointees, Max Beer and Rex King, were named to the Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals.
