Where I come from

Ross County seal

I’m super proud of the generosity and community spirit of my hometown. Thanks to Kim, Becky, Amber, and Erin for all their hard work in raising more than $8000 in one night in memory of Ryan Seitz, a volunteer firefighter who died trying to extinguish brush fires in our area. This outpouring is especially noteworthy in a rural town whose farming and manufacturing bases have been hit hard by the economic downturn.
