The Republicans picked Alan DeBoer as their candidate for the November general election.
DeBoer is a lifelong resident of Ashland as well as former mayor and owner of Town and Country Chevrolet.
“I don’t know the solutions to all the problems but when a problem comes to me, I think I can address it and come to a reasonable, sensible solution,” addressed DeBoer to the Republcian crowd.
Retired Colonel Dave Dotterer was also nominated, but did not accept.
DeBoer was already the Republican candidate for the House District 5 seat against Ashland City Councilwoman Pam Marsh. Now the Republicans will have to hold a second convention to nominate a new person for that seat.
