Fourth Ward Council seat filled by Perry

The Republican Central & Executive Committee met to fill the Fourth Ward Council seat Tuesday evening, voting to reappoint Daniel Perry

Perry has served as the Fourth Ward Councilman since the death of Council President Mark Hayes, which resulted in a vacancy left by Rich Focht being voted as the new president.

Two candidates applied for the position, Perry and Kevin Grover. The committee voted unanimously to approve Perry, 8-0. Only the Tiffin committee members were able to vote.

Perry, who was born and raised in Tiffin and is 2006 Calvert Catholic High School graduate. He is a barber currently at Champs Barbershop and is owner of the Tiffin Pedal Co.

“I wear many hats with my businesses and I’m a proud father and husband,” Perry had said. “I’m here because I love Tiffin.”

The passing of Hayes, who he had cut hair for and got to know the late council president, encouraged him to pursue the appointment.
