TIFFIN - Seneca County Sheriff Tom Steyer has rehired a man who was fired by former Sheriff H. Weldin Neff.
Sheriff Steyer said former Major Tim Thwaits will oversee the office's road patrol. Mr. Thwaits, along with former jail Capt. Dennis Brady and jail assistant Nancy Porter, were fired by Sheriff Neff last year after they testified in his felony trial.
The sheriff said he does not have money in his budget to rehire Mr. Brady and Ms. Porter. Mr. Brady ran for sheriff in the November election.
