The appointees are:

- Mary Jane West, a Vice President of People’s Bank. She also serves on the board of the Clermont Chamber and is treasurer of the Batavia Rotary Club. She previously served on the board of Clermont Senior Services.
- David Thamann, who recently retired as a managing editor for the National Underwriter Co., an insurance publishing company. He is a licensed non-practicing attorney with the State of Ohio.
In addition, Judge James Shriver appointed Michael Chapman to the DD board. Chapman is an attorney with Rendigs, Fry, Kiely & Dennis. He is a current member of the Clermont DD Empowers Me non-profit Board. Chapman is a member of the Batavia Rotary Club and has just finished a three-year term as an assistant governor for Rotary District 6670. He is an advisory member of the Boys and Girls Club board.
The new appointees will begin their four-year terms in January. They replace Laurie Benintendi, Greg Carson, Rex Parsons, and Harry Snyder who left the board due to term limits.
