Southwest Livingston County R-1 students gathered in the associate courtroom of the Livingston County Courthouse in Chillicothe on March 1, 2017, for student government day. While there, the students heard from county office holders and other county government employees. Among those addressing the students was Mark Shockey, Livingston County zoning officer and chief field appraiser. He gave the students a presentation describing his role in county government, the importance of it, and how it coincides with the rest of the departments in the Livingston County.

The Presiding Commissioner is elected by voters county-wide.
