COUNTY ELECTED OFFICIALS
Monroe County Commissioner
John R Moyer presently serves as the Chairman of the Monroe County Board of Commissioners.
Since Moyer & Garris took office in 2012, the county budget has been reduced and the fund balance has grown from almost nothing to well over five million dollars. Health care costs have been constrained, the county is now self-insured for workers compensation, and the long term debt has been reduced nearly twenty-five million dollars.
Commissioner Moyer believes the biggest issues facing Monroe County are a solution to the limited space available in the courthouse, increased economic development, and the repair and replacement of components of county owned buildings that have not been the beneficiary of preventive maintenance programs.
John resides in Shawnee-on-the-Delaware with his wife, Rachel, and two labs, Sophie and Libby. John is President of the Gregory W Moyer Defibrillator Fund and a Life Member and Secretary of the Shawnee Fire Company.
