KURTZ

Kurtz tabbed by GOP for Ward 1 seat

Bellefontaine City Council is once again at full-strength after city members of the Logan County Republican Party Central Committee approved Richard Kurtz as 1st Ward councilman.

The seat came open after Zeb Wagner was picked May 10 to fill the council president seat vacated by David Henry. Henry is now Bellefontaine’s service-safety director. Kurtz is a Bellefontaine High School math teacher. He was the only candidate present at Thursday’s meeting.

An oath of office has not yet been set, but it is expected he will be in office by the June 26 regular session of council.
