Incumbent trustees Tim Coleman and Mike Printy and challenger Jim Lang faced off at the Sandusky Register. 

Coleman is seeking re-election to a third term, while Printy is seeking re-election to a second term. The challenger in the race, Lang, is a retired Perkins Township police officer who most recently served for two years as chief with the Sandusky Police Department.

There are two open seats.

This debate, and all of the Register’s other fall campaign debates — the Huron, Perkins and Margaretta school board races and two Sandusky city commission debates — are available for demand viewing at  / decision-2013.

Just Asking

Can you tell Coleman is in election mode? He was always addressing the camera in the first part. Started to forget until the very end.

Almost lost it when he said that "the trustees" were available 24/7. That may be true for some, but for Coleman is only happens during election time.

He never misses an opportunity to meet & greet. And for 3 months he is everywhere. Have you noticed how many articles in the SR had comments from Coleman and not the other trustees? Then for the remaining time you only see him at trustee meeting.

Printy seems to have done a reasonably good job.


"Lang, is a retired Perkins Township police officer who most recently served for two years as chief with the Sandusky Police Department."

I have several questions about this candidate. Usually law enforcement officers are not paid the best salary and that includes some police chiefs.

Did Mr. Lang make good investments, win the lottery, double dipping (Ohio's retirement law) or get a nice inheritance? Did his wife have a good income or received an inheritance? The reason I ask these questions is because Mr. Lang bought a house in 2003 for $425,000.
8/27/2003 $425,000


The first thing i would ask Mr. Lang is what would have happened if he had been trustee and instead of buidling a debt free buidling used that money for the 6 police officers? when that money ran out they would have still had to have been laid off. All Mr. Lang would have done was kick the can down the road.
