Congrats on PIVOT grant

The League of Women Voters of the Tiffin Area is very happy to congratulate three local officials for their foresight, hard work and dedication in securing a 2 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to fund the drug recovery program PIVOT (Participation in Victory of Transition) to make the Seneca County Courts more efficient when addressing low-level drug offenses.

The League has held three public meetings about this this program, as the PIVOT Program supports the League’s position on behavioral health. Judge Steve Shuff and Judge Michael Kelbley of the Tiffin Common Pleas Courts and Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court Judge Mark Repp are in charge of the PIVOT program and have made PIVOT the model program. We wish continued success to the judges and the PIVOT going forward.

Gene Chintala, President
