Chairman Ed Eilert delivered his final state of the county address on Tuesday.

Why it matters: For the last 11 years, Eilert has served as the chairman of the Johnson County board of county commissioners. The 2022 event was the first in-person address since 2019. Both the 2020 and 2021 addresses were socially distanced due to COVID-19.
