Born and raised in Washington Township, Woodall has spent all but one year of his life living in Putnam County.
He has been married to Rhonda Woodall for 28 years and has three children, Sheridan Wilson and husband Ryan, Rachel Ames and husband Ethan, and Austin Woodall and fiancée Cassie Davis. He also has two grandchildren, Gabriella and Maddilyn Wilson.
In his professional career Woodall has worked in industry, agriculture and most recently small business. He has held positions at Oxford Automotive and Buzzi Unicem and has worked for various farmers in the county.
Currently he is the owner of S&W Feed Center in Greencastle, servicing livestock and pet owners in the community with pre-mixed bag feed as well as custom mixed solutions for each feeding situation.
Over the past 20 years, Woodall has served the community through many local organizations. He is a graduate of the Putnam County Leadership Academy, later serving on the board. He has coached slow-pitch and fast-pitch softball for several years.
His most passionate community involvement has been through the Putnam County 4-H, serving on the 4-H Council, as a 4-H club leader, and most recently has been superintendent of the Beef Barn.
Woodall is proud to say all three of his children were 10-year 4-H members.
Asked what made him want to run for county commissioner, Woodall said, "With being connected to agriculture, industry and small business, I feel I have the experience needed to take on the challenges of this county.
"It is time to bring my perspective and ideas to the table," he added. "This is just another way to continue my service to the community."
