Crockett, Eastman Township Trustees

Incumbent Mark Crockett and challenger John Eastman were elected as Miami Township Trustees on Tuesday. Both will serve four-year terms, joining Trustee Chris Mucher on the three-person board.

Crockett was returned to the seat he has held for the last 12 years. He was the race’s only incumbent as longtime Trustee Lamar Spracklen, whose term had expired, did not run. Eastman, an engineer and Yellow Springs native, joins the board for the first time.
