10 January 2023- A current Franklin County Commissioner and the head of the Franklin County Democrats both announce together their intentions to run for County Commissioner. Bob Ziobrowski and Cameron Schroy issued a joint statement on Tuesday announcing this candidacy, which will lead into a primary in the Spring.
What complicates the race and is the reason why their dual candidacy is normal is the fact that only the two top Republicans in the May 16th Primary and two top Democrats will move to the November General Election. To recap the who, what, where, when, and why News Talk 1037FM’s Anthony Panasiewicz and Franklin County Attorney Clint Barkdoll give an outline of what this election season looks like on a small scale level. That sit down is below, as is the full statement from Commissioner Ziobrowski and Chairman Schroy.
Franklin County Commissioner Bob Ziobrowski and Greencastle resident Cameron Schroy have announced their candidacies, as a team, for Franklin County Commissioner in the 2023 Democratic Primary.
Ziobrowski has been a Franklin County Commissioner since 2008. A real estate appraiser by profession, he previously served as President of the Chambersburg School Board, Vice President of the Franklin County Area Development Corporation, and Chairman of the Chambersburg Hospital Board of Directors. Born in Chambersburg, Bob graduated from Chambersburg Area Senior High School and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Economics from Wilson College. He is a widower with two grown sons.
“As commissioner, I have supported the social safety net for those less fortunate. I have supported quality of life enhancements while encouraging economic growth. I work to ensure that future generations will have the opportunities to grow, work, and play that I have enjoyed in Franklin County. In Cameron, I have a running mate with the judgment and experience to be a great commissioner.”
Schroy is a social studies and english teacher in Waynesboro, as well as a life-long resident of Franklin County. Born in Chambersburg in 1996, he graduated from Greencastle-Antrim Senior High School in 2014 and Shippensburg University in 2018. He has served on the Franklin County Democratic Committee since 2014 and was elected chair in 2022 as the youngest in Pennsylvania. He and his wife of four years live in Greencastle.
“Franklin County is a fantastic place to live and we need to work to keep it that way. Commissioner Ziobrowski is a proven, thoughtful leader who takes great care to do what is right for our county. I am honored and excited to be his running mate. As a life-long resident of Franklin County, I want to see our communities thrive for years to come.”
