Chris Shaffer, a 1999 Clay gradaute, was appointed to the Governor's Office of Appalachia.  He is the son of Bill and Beth Shaffer of Rosemount and the brother of Tim, Sarah, and Mark.

Columbus  Lisa Patt-McDaniel, Director of the Ohio Department of Development, and Fred Deel, Director of Development’s Governor’s Office of Appalachia, today announced the appointment of Chris Shaffer as the office’s assistant director.

"Chris has a strong command of the unique opportunities that exist in Appalachian Ohio," Patt-McDaniel said. "Chris will work closely with local, state, and federal partners in the office’s meaningful effort to promote growth and development in Ohio’s Appalachian communities."

Shaffer, 30, was appointed by Ohio Governor Ted Strickland to his prior position as Operations Manager in the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. In that capacity, Shaffer assisted the director with budget management, Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping, project management, outreach, and community engagement. 

“I look forward to working with Chris to support economic, educational, and community prosperity throughout Ohio’s Appalachian region,” Deel said. “Our work with partners, both federal and local, strengthens the quality of life for Ohio’s Appalachian communities.” 

Shaffer, a native of Portsmouth, is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Shaffer is also a combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He earned his Masters of Business Administration in 2009 from Ohio Dominican University. A high resolution photo of Chris Shaffer is available by clicking here.

Shaffer is married to the former Amy Martin of Waverly, Ohio. The couple has one infant daughter, Quinn Maria. 

As an advocate for Ohio’s 32 Appalachian counties, the Governor’s Office of Appalachia works on behalf of the Appalachian Regional Commission in Washington, D.C. to promote the region’s assets and to support local, regional, state, and federal initiatives.
