Kuhn Tapped By Judges to Fill Ames’ Seat

We now know who will be filling the vacant County Commission seat of the late Bill Ames.

Friday afternoon, Lebanon County President Judge John Tylwalk announced that the board of judges had unanimously voted for Mike Kuhn, Director of Development at Wellspan Good Samaritan Hospital and a lifelong resident of Lebanon County to serve out the remainder of Ames’ term in office, through the first of January, 2024.

Kuhn recently retired from the Lebanon School Board after serving 28 years.  He’s also been a prominent member of several community organizations, including the Lebanon Kiwanis Club and the Holy Name Society of St. Cecilia’s catholic church.

Reaction on the announcement of Kuhn’s selection from Chairman Commissioner Bob Phillips:

Kuhn will be sworn into office Tuesday at 11:00am in Courtroom #1 of the Lebanon Municipal Building.
