Jeremy Shaffer Letter to the Editor: Beth Ellis is a proven leader

To The Editor:

As a former Highland County Commissioner, dedicated to public service, I am proud to endorse Beth Ellis as the Republican candidate in the 91st House District.

Beth is an educated and qualified candidate that will bring an unmatched skillset to represent all the citizens of the district, especially Highland County. Beth is a successful businesswoman, mom, farmer and citizen, not a career politician. Beth possesses a relentless work ethic and a steadfast commitment to the community.

After graduating from The Ohio State University, Ellis served as a healthcare professional for almost 20 years. In her role she often made important life or death decisions. She left the healthcare field to work full-time at Cherrybend Pheasant Farm, her family farm and pheasant preserve. Ellis created Operation Cherrybend, which is an event that benefits wounded veterans and offers camaraderie to those that have sacrificed for our freedoms.

Beth Ellis, a proven leader, serves as president of Clinton Co. Farm Bureau, and served on the Ohio Farm Bureau State Policy Committee. Beth is vice chair of the Port Authority which owns and manages the Wilmington Air Park. Beth has shown that she can lead under pressure and consistently get positive results.

Being a businesswoman, mother, farmer, medical professional, and pilot has prepared Beth to represent the citizens of the 91st District. She will protect our gun rights, fight for job creation, fight the opioid crisis, and fight to keep taxes low. She is the only citizen candidate with the education, experience, and ability to move our community forward. As a recognized leader, she will be principled, ethical, and value driven for Highland County. I give Beth Ellis my full support and encourage you to join me by doing the same.
