The recent appointment of Jim Zehringer as Agriculture Director has left a vacancy in the 77th District House Seat. WHIOtv.com and WHIO radio are reporting that former Rep. Jim Buchy is interested in the appointment. Whoever gets the appointment will serve a full two-year term and then be up for re-election in 2012.
Buchy previously served this office from 1983 to 2000, when term limits prevented him from running for another term. Jim Buchy is currently the President of Buchy Foods in Greenville.
