TIFFIN, OHIO – July 26, 2022 – During a meeting Tuesday evening, members of the Seneca County Democratic Central Committee voted to accept the nomination of Cheyane Thacker to serve the open At-Large Councilmember seat. Thacker is to be sworn into office at the next scheduled Tiffin City Council meeting.

Thacker grew up in Tiffin and attended Columbian High School. She works as a legal assistant at Lange Gordon Rannigan & Claus LLC and previously had worked at various businesses in Downtown Tiffin. Thacker ran for the At-Large Council seat in 2021.
