Gillis, a Tipp City resident, has been on the board for 13 years. He is a Democrat and has notified the party executive committee of his decision. The committee will appoint his replacement on the four-member board.
“It has been a wonderful and rewarding experience, but it is time to hand it off to the younger generation,” Gillis said in a written statement distributed at the election board’s monthly meeting. “I want to thank the Miami County Democratic Party for the confidence they placed in me by allowing me to serve.”
