West Chester residents pull petitions for George Lang’s trustee seat


Within just a few hours of George Lang’s resignation as West Chester Twp. trustee, two people had pulled petitions to seek his seat.

Lang resigned on Wednesday in order to take the oath of office to be the next state lawmaker representing the 52nd Ohio House District, and leaves two years remaining on his unexpired term.

So far Lakota School Board member Lynda O’Connor and West Chester Twp. resident Lawrence Brown have pulled petitions for Lang’s unexpired term.

Along with Lang’s unexpired term, township voters will decide who should be elected to the full terms currently occupied by Trustees Lee Wong and Mark Welch.
