All three West Chester Twp. trustee seats will be on the ballot this November.

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.
