Successful economic development has much to do with momentum. Williams County is on the upswing and we need to share this news! We’re starting the year off strong with our 2017 membership drive. WEDCO membership is on the rise, which has enabled WEDCO to hire a second full time staff person, build a new website, host events specific to our members’ needs, and more! Now, we need YOUR help to keep up the momentum and accomplish new goals.

Raised in Montpelier, Ohio, Husted attended the University of Dayton (UD), where he earned All-American Defensive Back honors as a member of the 1989 Division III National Championship football team. After receiving his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UD, Husted stayed in the Dayton area where he served as Vice President of Business and Economic Development at the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.

Jon Husted was first elected to public office in 2000 as a member of the Ohio House of Representatives. Only four years later, Jon’s colleagues elected him Speaker of the Ohio House, making him one of the youngest ever to lead the body. After serving two terms as Speaker, Husted was elected to the Ohio Senate, where he was a leading advocate for redistricting reform – a cause he continues to champion as Secretary of State.
