Dayton man accused of trying to join ISIS in Syria

Miami Twp. trustee races already attracting interest


Interest seems strong in the two Miami Twp. trustee seats on the ballot this fall, four years removed from a required recount in a six-candidate race.

Nearly four months before the filing deadline, one person has already turned the paperwork while two others have taken out petitions.

RELATED: Seven seek open trustee seat

Meanwhile, the man appointed this week to the vacancy created by Robert Matthews Jr.’s resignation said he plans to seek election.

Miami Twp. Board of Trustees President Andrew Papanek got the most votes in 2013, with just 51 votes separating him, Matthews and the third-place finisher, incumbent Mike Nolan. It triggered an automatic recount by the Montgomery County Board of Elections.

EARLIER: Six seeking two spots on township trustees

Papanek has pulled petitions for a re-election bid while Miami Valley Fire District board member Bob Davis did so in late December, elections records show.

Trustees voted this week to appoint Eric Flasher to fill the seat formerly occupied by Matthews. Flasher, one of four candidates interviewed for the vacancy, said he plans to be on the fall ballot.

RELATED: Trustees fill vacant seat with appointee

Another of the four interviewed, Don Culp, on Tuesday filed petitions for the seat, county records show.

Matthews’ resignation attracted seven applicants, including Nolan. Trustee Vice President Doug Barry said he would encourage all seven to run.

Treasury secretary says Trump 'has no intention' of releasing tax returns

Winners and losers in the Trump tax plan 

The tax plan the Trump administration released Wednesday consists (so far) of a single page of bullet points.   If this were a more rounded plan, we could wait for the tax wonks at various think tanks to run it through their models and tell with some precision how it would affect people at different income levels and who would benefit from...
