Dorothy Pelanda was appointed as the 39th Director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture by Governor Mike DeWine on January 10, 2019. Pelanda is the first woman to serve as Director in the Department’s history. Her great-great-great uncle, Gideon Liggett, served eight years (six as treasurer) on the Ohio Board of Agriculture (the precursor to ODA) in the early 1900s.

Pete Emmons spoke with her shortly after she took office to find out what her goals are for the first few months of office.
