After the Washington County Commissioners completed their Tuesday meeting, county employees held a reception for the four outgoing commissioners.
John S. Shank and Ronald L. Bowers were swept out of office in the Nov. 3 general election while two other commissioners, James R. Wade and R. Lee Downey, did not seek re-election.
The only returning commissioner is Gregory I. Snook, who this year was commissioners president. He will be joined by Bert L. Iseminger Jr., William J. Wivell, Paul L. Swartz and John L. Schnebly.
The new County Commissioners will be sworn in on Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. in the Washington County Courthouse and will hold their first meeting at 1 p.m.
