Greenville, OH September 18, 2016 - The Legislative Committee of the Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) hosted the September 8th meeting which was held at the Brethren Retirement Community. The committee consisted of Gail Snyder (chair) and Diane Delaplane.

The program for the evening featured candidates for two local contested offices. Prosecuting Attorney candidates, R. Kelly Ormsby III, Republican and David A. Rohrer, non-party spoke as well as County Commissioner candidates, Matthew Aultman, Republican and Leon Rogers, Democrat.

Mr. Rohrer spoke first and talked about the need to fight the drug problems in our community and shutting down places where drug activity is prevalent. He also spoke of the need of an investigator to assist.

Mr. Ormsby addressed the drug issues in our community and how this has created more crime due to the increased need for people to support their heroin addiction. He mentioned that the drug Narcan is now being used two to three times a day in Darke County to save lives.

Leon Rogers, candidate for County Commissioner discussed his extensive business background, and experience which includes being on the city council and working with Main Street Greenville.

Matthew Aultman talked about accountability and responsibility as being all important. Factors he considers in making decisions are: How much does it cost? Can we afford it? Who will benefit? And does it pay for itself? He mentioned challenges in taking care of our roads and keeping expenses in line.

Following the candidates, BPW members discussed plans for their upcoming October 13th meeting which is the Annual Guest Night “What a Girl Wants”. Besides actively promoting membership to the club, proceeds from the evening will go towards scholarships for Darke County young women. The night will include vendors, a LulaRoe Fashion show, silent auction, and super raffle.

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. Those interested in learning more about the Club can contact Membership Chair Deb Smith at 937/417-2434 or
