Article X of the Ohio Constitution gives county government benefits similar to those conferred on citirs and villages under the Home Rule Amendment of 1912. This will give Lorain County the ability to adjust organizational structure without the state of Ohio Legislature having to make changes in the state statute. Charter counties may:

a.

Vary the number of members of their government body
b. Choose county officers

c.

Offer citizens the ability to set term limits
d. Set salaries and benefits of elected officials
Policy Formation
With Seven (7) Commissioners, the district formation will better reflect the Rural, Suburban, and Urban nature of Lorain County. We believe that this will result in the establishment of equitable policies that will benefit all three constituencies and help the county progress into the 21st Century. Most municipalities in Lorain County already operate as a Charter form of government.
