Race for Athens City Law Director
(WOUB) - There will be a race for Athens City Law Director in November for the first time in several years and an Assistant Athens County Prosecutor will be Garry Hunter's challenger.

Pat Lang won the democratic primary beating former Morgan County Prosecutor and Common Pleas Court Judge Bill Safranek with 57% of the vote.

Hunter, a republican, has been law director since 1977 and Lang says Democrats need to come together in November to beat him.

Lang says he believes Hunter hasn't had a challenger in about 20 years.. And it's time for a change in the office.

But, Lang does admit facing a 30 year incumbent will be a challenge.
