In a close race for the full four-year term as Miami Township trustee, longtime incumbent Chris Mucher reclaimed his seat, just 143 votes ahead of challenger Don Hollister, while Zoe Van Eaton-Meister trailed. Mucher captured 891 votes, or 44 percent, to Hollister’s 748 votes, or 37 percent of the village and township electorate. Van Eaton-Meister had 365 votes, or 18 percent.

For the unexpired term, Lamar Spracklen won his bid to complete the two years remaining in the term he was appointed to fill when Trustee John Eastman died last year. Spracklen swept up 1,042 votes, or 65 percent, while challenger and township resident Dale Amstutz lagged with 573 votes.

Mucher, a village resident, has been a Township trustee since 1996. Spracklen, a local farmer, has served on the board for 15 years.

Miami Township fiscal officer Margaret Silliman was also reelected to her fifth four-year term.
