BRIGHTON — Adams County Commissioners Charles “Chaz” Tedesco and Eva Henry were among several Adams County officials to be sworn into office Tuesday by Chief Judge C. Vincent Phelps.
Tedesco said it has been a long road and a rough year mentally, physically and emotionally and that his family has shown tremendous courage standing by his side.
“My friends, my church, my new friends, my political friends have shown faith in my over the last year that is unprecedented. To you, to the constituents of Adams County, thank you. I’m humbled, I’m honored, I’m ready to go,” he said.
Henry thanked the residents of Adams County for putting their faith and trust in her since there have been some challenging times in Adams County’s recent past. She said while campaigning this summer she knocked on a lot of doors and heard their stories of struggles and victories.
“I would like to bring the voices of those people to the county. Voices of hard working families that just want a county government they can be proud of and a county government they can trust,” she said. “The voters have given me a big opportunity that I do not take lightly. We must have faith in our county government and with one another. Together we can build a better Adams County and a stronger Adams County.”
District Attorney Dave Young was also sworn into office during the ceremony along with 17th Judicial District judges Leroy D. Kirby, Chris Melonakis and Jeffrey L. Romeo. Melonakis said this term would be his last as he plans on retiring soon.
Phelps said Judge Edward Moss was sworn in early Tuesday morning because he was presiding over court.
