At 75, Buterbaugh has served as Big Run mayor for three decades

May 7, 2012

BIG RUN — If there's anyone who has been as consistent as the Big Run Peepers, it's Joe Buterbaugh, who has been the mayor of Big Run for the last 30 years and is currently the longest-serving mayor in Jefferson County following the death of Worthville Mayor Forest L. Mauer in 2009.

"I first became the mayor in 1982, and me and the Big Run War Memorial building still look basically the same," Buterbaugh laughed.
