When the Adams County Board of Supervisors convened for the first meeting of the year this morning, one person was noticeably missing from the room.
After serving on the county board for 27 years, Larry Woodman ended his term in December after choosing not to run for a seventh term.
“I’m going to miss it a bunch,” Woodman said. “I really liked it.”
Woodman was first appointed to the county board in August 1986 to fill the unexpired term of Harold Struss, who died a month earlier.
Since that time, the 77-year-old has gone up for election six times — often facing other candidates who were unable to unseat him.
