From David’s Desk- Virtual Education Sessions
Jefferson- Ashtabula County Auditor David Thomas has announced a new virtual educational series hosted by the Auditor’s Office to inform residents of what resources and community partners are doing during this pandemic to provide for the community.
“Our people are hungry for information. That is why we set up our COVID-19 Auditor’s website and want to provide this series as another opportunity for resources,” shared Auditor David Thomas. Two afternoons a week Auditor Thomas will be hosting a community partner to discuss updates with their organization, how the Auditor’s Office partners with them, and opportunities for supporting residents through their services.
“These are zoom video chats that members of the public can watch and message in questions. If folks miss the 3pm call, we will be uploading the videos to our webpage and social media to be watched later,” stated Thomas.
