Tony Morelli

After a long business career and a lifetime interest in the success of our county, I strongly believe it’s time for fresh faces and fresh ideas to be elected to the Board of County Commissioners. While our current Commissioners have done a good job moving Jefferson County in the right direction, I feel that the time is right for a new perspective. This is a tough job that requires a full-time voice, something I am committed to. I’m confident that, with my background and knowledge of the issues and opportunities facing our county, I am the right person to bring fresh solutions to the seat.
