Chad Saylor named new Dauphin County commissioner, replaces Haste

Dauphin County has a new commissioner—long-time chief clerk, Chad Saylor (pictured).

The county commissioner’s office announced the appointment of Saylor on Tuesday to replace Jeff Haste, who resigned from the office effective May 31.

“I am honored and humbled to be selected as Commissioner Haste’s successor,” Saylor said, in a statement.

Dauphin County President Judge John F. Cherry will swear in Saylor on Wednesday.

Saylor has served for the past seven years as chief clerk, also holding that position from 2004 to 2011.

Last month, Cherry accepted applications from Dauphin County Republicans for the seat, with a term that runs through January 2024. According to the county, interviews were conducted on June 7, followed by a unanimous vote for Saylor from the panel of county judges.

“I look forward to working alongside commissioners Pries and Hartwick and continuing the teamwork that has produced 16 years without an increase in property taxes,” Saylor said.
