WARREN, Pa. – Warren County Commissioner Jeff Eggleston has announced that he will not seek a third term as Commissioner.
Eggleston was first elected as a County Commissioner in 2015 and won reelection in 2019. His current term, which he said he intends to finish, will end on Dec. 31, 2023. Eggleston said he plans to retire from politics at the end of his term in order to pursue “opportunities in creative fields.”
“I am very grateful for the opportunity the Warren County community has provided me to serve as commissioner,” Eggleston said. “Now, I plan to focus more on my family and pursue other private sector opportunities.”
During his two terms, Eggleston pointed to several items including leading the closure of the Grunderville Landfill which brought $450,000 to county government, writing grants for more than $225,000 in projects, helping bring the Northern Pennsylvania Regional College administration to Warren County, cutting budget waste and organizing marketing and tourism efforts, and receiving the 2018 “Commissioner of the Year in Pennsylvania” award among his major accomplishments while in office.
“It has been a pleasure working with so many dedicated public servants,” Eggleston said. “My achievements in my role were because of their hard work and assistance at every step, and I am grateful for everything they’ve done. The county staff has been excellent, and I wish them nothing but future success. ”
Eggleston also thanked his family for their sacrifice during his time in office.
“I would not be an effective commissioner or as involved in the community if not for the sacrifice of my wife and children of a good portion of my attention,” Eggleston said. “I am grateful for their patience and acceptance and look forward to focusing on them 100 percent after my time in politics is finished.”
