Stark County Commissioner Duane “Bucky” Wolf announced he is retiring from his District 3 seat during a meeting Tuesday at the Stark County Courthouse.
“I’ve been in the workforce for 57 years and 53 of them in public service,” Wolf said. “I’m hoping that somebody and maybe more than one person step forward.”
This is his 12th year on the commission and Wolf said he has enjoyed it. “I just think it’s probably time.”
Commissioners thanked him for his time on the board.
“We weren’t all looking forward to that, but we understand and appreciate your service,” Chairman Ken Zander said.
Wolf was chairman for a four-year stint until Zander was voted into the position a year ago.
Wolf was employed by the Dickinson Police Department for more than 37 years and was in the Marine Corps for four years, he said. “From the time I was 18 I’ve been in the workforce,” Wolf said. He hopes to travel when his term is up Dec. 1.
