Township clerk Suzy Cokeley addressed Butler County Commissioners during public comments Tuesday, she said in an effort to stave off a potential Pleasant Township situation.

Cokeley told the commission that she was concerned with the election of Jim Squire due to his current position as machine operator at the township. She cited a potential conflict of interest as he is a paid employee of the township, and wishes to continue to be despite being elected as treasurer this November.
