>Thank you Commissioner Haworth

>

A reception was held today for retiring Darke County Commissioner Terry Haworth. Terry leaves the commissioners office after 5 terms and 20 years of service.

Many friends and supporters attended the reception. Terry addressed the crowd and said he was ready for a new phase of his life that would include farming, working at the new family business (Sweet 101), and riding his motorcycle.

Terry said that he got a little black and blue serving as a commissioner, but it was worth it to serve the community he loved and worked to make better.

Thank you Terry for your leadership and years of service for Darke County. Best of luck with your new endeavors!
