Ed brought a business approach to township government.  Miami Township is the 17th largest township in among the current 1308 townships in Ohio.  Managing the growth of the township is the primary need of this rapidly growing township.  A township must think of itself as a business.  It must use the citizen’s money wisely, cutting costs and improving the productivity of its workers. 

Ed was appointed to serve out the 2008 term of Mary Walker starting on November 12, 2008, when she was forced to resign.  He began his first full term on January 2, 2009.  Ed focused on core responsibilities of county government while working to expand highway infrastructure to support job development in Clermont County.  The Criminal Justice System, Public Safety Services, Highway Improvements and Job Creation  are among Ed's top priorities. 

The early years--

Ed was born and raised in Miamiville, a small town.  When he went to grade school, Miamiville had it's own school district and Board of Education.  He went to a two room schoolhouse with two teachers. On the right is a picture of that schoolhouse.  The school was at Poplar and Branch Hill- Miamiville Road.  There were two rooms downstairs and an auditorium up stairs.  Small building just visible to left was the girl's outhouse.  The boy's outhouse was to the left out of view. They were both octagonal.  Early on, there were 6 grades in a room with one teacher.  By the time Ed was in the 6th grade, the district had started to merge with the Milford Exempted Village School District and had only three grades in each room.  Ed went form a class of three in the 6th grade to a class of over 100 in the 7th grade when he went to Milford.
