COLUMBUS – Speaker of the Ohio House William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) today appointed State Representative Tony Burkley (R-Payne) to serve as a member of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.

Rep. Burkley will also serve as a member of the Economic Development and Regulatory Reform Committee along with the State and Local Government Committee. Burkley served 16 years in county government with a four-term stint as Paulding County commissioner.

“I was pleased to see the Speaker appointed me to be on the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. My district is very dependent on the agriculture industry,” Rep. Burkley said. “The selection of State and Local Government Committee is a good fit for my experience as county commissioner and the impact of policy on local government. Both of these committees complement my third committee, which is Economic Development and Regulatory Reform. Growth and jobs in the private sector is important for all of Ohio.”

Rep. Burkley is now serving his first term in the Ohio House of Representatives. He represents the 82nd House District, which encompasses Defiance, Paulding and Van Wert counties, as well as part of Auglaize County.
