It's Nuesse v. Kline (again)

Kim Nuesse and Matt Kline battled in city hall during their tenure in Sandusky.

Kim Nuesse and Matt Kline battled in city hall during their tenure in Sandusky.

Now the former city commissioner and the ex-city manager are vying against each other for a job outside of Dayton.

Both are among 16 finalists for the township administrator position in Beavercreek Township.

Nuesse declined comment on the competition; Kline could not be reached.

The battles in Beavercreek could prove equal or greater for both of them than the war in Sandusky was. The Dayton Daily News reported the three Beavercreek trustees have yet to agree whether the position should be part-time or full-time, or whether it's needed at all.

Trustee Bob Stone said trustees are working out the details.

"There are three unique individuals as trustees with slight differences of opinion — and that's a good thing," Stone said. "Speaking for myself only, (I'd like) somebody who has people skills. Somebody who works well with people and the staff."

The township has not had an administrator. The trustees hope to bring in someone who can act as a conduit among the different department heads, Stone said.

The 16 finalists will be interviewed by a local group of leaders — including the township fiscal officer, schools superintendent and the chamber of commerce director — starting Jan. 25.

Each candidate will then meet with the three township trustees, Stone said.

After considering recommendations from the community leaders, the trustees will narrow the group to three or four candidates. At that time, Stone said, there will be a two-week period for background checks.

The trustees are still discussing whether the position should be full-time or part-time, how much it should pay and what responsibilities to give the new administrator. Twenty-seven people applied for the job.

Beavercreek Township has just less than 50,000 residents. The township runs a large fire department that also serves the city of Beavercreek. The city of Beavercreek operates the police department for both political subdivisions.

Stone said he hopes trustees agree on a candidate by mid-February.

Nuesse announced her resignation from the Sandusky city commission in a surprise move earlier this week. Her lack of full-time employment locally forced the decision, she said, and both she and her husband are pursuing several job opportunities outside the county.

Nuesse was the top votegetter in the city commission race in November 2009 while still fighting her controversial June 2008 firing as the Sandusky police chief, a job she had since August 2006. Her case against the city is ongoing.

Matt Kline, who fired Nuesse, served as city manger from November 2007 to November 2009. The city commission voted unanimously to fire him after he allegedly discussed in a taped phone call ways to give $100,000 back to developer John Eymann after the Marina District development project fell through. The city, by contract, was to keep the money.

Kline also allegedly remarked in the call about "having to hire so many crippled black Jewish people."

Kline never disputed the validity of the transcript, according to Don Icsman, Sandusky's law director and interim city manager.



GOOD!, More power to the both of them. At least it won't be costing Sandusky taxpayers anything while they battle.


Sadly one simple google search by the trustees and both Kline and Nuesse will no longer be considered.  I cannot see how any municipality could hire either one ever again.  The saga will continue here in Sandusky amounst ourselves and in the newspaper, while the rest of the world does not give two shakes.


I agree with you  MrSandusky.. Neither of these idiots should ever be considered for an administrators position in any city ever again!!!  I also agree with you Cityslicker their ridiculous battles is not going to cost us a dime!!!

What coincidence! I would love to see Nuesse beat out Kline for that job. Serve him right!


 The above picture of Kim in a bar explains a lot now. I wonder if her next employeer will give her a bar to work out of too.


The picture is  at Always Pizza on Warren Street.  It was taken the evening of her election to city commission.


Hopefully this ends the Nuesse-Kline saga.  They tore this city apart and then just left town to go somewhere else and spread their mayhem.  If I didn't know better, I would say that they planned it this way.  Somebody would have to be a fool to touch either one of these people.  


In my opinion, all lines of blame lead back to the city commission. Never really cared for Kline but also felt he got stuck in the middle of the Nuesse  catastrophe which shouldn't have happened in the first place.


This isn't even close to being entertaining nor the slightest bit funny or ironic etc. This is a shame.

Talent comes into Sandusky hired with a "WINNING RESUME". and somehow leave "COMPLETE LOSERS".

Something is wrong with Sandusky.

This has to be a real slow day for news... If they were the final two (and not part of the final sixteen), then this story would have some relevance.


I am sure that Beavercreek Township knows all about these two loosers.  Beavercreek is not that far from Sandusky, so the word is out about them.   If  Nuesse gets the job she will only file a law suit if she don't get her way.

Wake up Beavercreek Township trouble is on it's way

 Having lived in Beavercreek, which by the way was the "83rd" MOST desirable city to live in(FORTUNE), in 2007, I feel KN would make a GREAT ADMINISTRATOR...... KLINE "NEED NOT APPLY".... No way will the trustees put up with him, and his inability to run a clean office!!!! ESPECIALLY SINCE THE COMMUNITY HAS ABOUT 2000 JEWISH RESIDENTS....

I for one will make sure all the Temples in the Greater Dayton Area OPPOSE THIS GUY FROM GAINING EMPLOYMENT THERE!!!   As am a member of the 'Chabad' community,  WE DON'T WANT ANOTHER NEO'-NUT' around.


What will Matt Westerhold do without  Nuesse ? 

Maybe if Nuesse gets the job in Beavercreek Township,  she may get Westerhold a job at the Dayton Daily News.  Isn't life great?

Well if Nuesse don't get Westerhold a job,  he will need to find another moe.

I don't think it's funny that Nuesse and Kline have applied for the same job. When you look at the whole picture it's pathetic. Like somebody said-----they both came into Sandusky with winning resumes and look how they left. I never cared for Kline but I still said right from the start that Kline was nothing more than the scapegoat for the village idiots-----and I still say that! All one has to do is count all the VICIOUS cases over the years that the village idiots were responsible for to know that----and those were all before Nuesse and Kline were even in the picture. The village idiots don't care WHAT they do to the lives of others----and they sure did a number on Kim Nuesse and Matt Kline! I'll bet Kline and Nuesse both curse the day they ever even heard of the one-horse corrupt city of Sandusky, Ohio!


Julie R, short memoary  in the past you claimed Matt Line was part of the GOB's, now he is a "scapegoat."  News flash, your village disinherited you, its a plot.


Wow Sam, you certainly have a good memory when it comes to Julie R. and her posts.  I feel anyone can apply for ANY job they want.  It is up to the employer to do their "homework" with their applicants.  If someone wants to "fudge" their resume, then it is on them.  If an employer hires someone who "fudges" on their resume, they could be fired.  If the employer does NOT do their homework, they are to BLAME.  I have worked in places where someone would knowingly LIE and give the person a "glowing" recommendation just to get rid of them.  It is like the military premise of, "Screw up, move up."  Anyone can apply for any job they want.  I am glad for Nuesse if she gets hired someplace else.  Why not?  She is entitled to work anywhere that will pay her.  I am concerned at the MILLIONS spent in the Nuesse/Kline debacle.  Now both will soon be gone and WHO is left to pay?  One thing about SPD.  They have played out all their cards in their objective to get rid of Nuesse.  Now, Jimmy Lang is in charge and there is nothing they can do about it.  For some reason, I have related the SR file pics of Nuesse to a slight resemblance to Hillary Clinton.  But, that is just me.

Sam sure DOES have a good memory when it comes to Julie R. and her posts. He follows her around like an internet stalker afraid of what she's gonna say next!
