COLUMBUS— State Representative Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) today issued the following statement regarding the resignation of Lancaster Mayor Brian Kuhn.


"I am cancelling the Statehouse press conference that I had scheduled for this afternoon in light of Kuhn's resignation.  I had asked Council for a resolution calling on the mayor to resign so I could deliver it to the Governor with a letter asking him to initiate removal proceedings in common pleas court--which is all unnecessary now.”


“I am also working on legislation to put more teeth into the law in cases of deception like we have seen in this case.  We've come a long way with anti-corruption laws since I carried my first bill in legislature, but we obviously have more work to do to stay ahead of those who try to defraud and cheat Ohioans.”


“We as citizens and public officials must expect only the highest examples of character and never, ever, tolerate less than honorable and ethical behavior from our elected officials.”


“It is time now for us, as citizens of Lancaster, to put this behind us and keep working to make Lancaster a great place to live, work, raise a family and build a business."
