COLUMBUS, Ohio (WOUB) — Ohio Senator Frank Hoagland will retire from the Senate with his resignation to take effect next month.

The senator for Ohio’s 30th district announced that he will step down effective December 1 in a press release sent Tuesday.

“It has been an honor to serve with my colleagues in the Ohio Senate,” Hoagland said. “From serving my country as a SEAL in the United States Navy, to serving my neighbors in the 30th Senate District, my heart will always be loyal to my country and to my state.”

The Senate will establish a screening committee to review potential replacements for the remainder of the unexpired term in the 30th District, which represents Athens, Belmont, Harrison, Jefferson, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Noble, and Washington counties as well as portions of Guernsey county.

“Frank brought a unique understanding to the job which was very helpful and enlightening to our caucus on a range of topics, Senate President Matt Huffman (R-Lima) said. “In addition to his expertise, he brought a genuine caring and sense of humor that we will miss.”

Hoagland was serving his second term in the Ohio Senate after first being elected in 2016.

He said he looks forward to spending time with his grandchild and family.
