Athens Law Director Debate
(2007-10-15)
(WOUB) - The two candidates running for Athens City Law Director don't see eye to eye on the responsibilities of the position.

Long time incumbent, Republican Gary Hunter feels that putting the director in court is a waste of time.

Hunter says that the city has a prosecution staff that is capable of handling the work.

Challenger Pat Lang, a Democrat, disagrees.

He says if elected, he'll be in court trying cases.

The two candidates spoke at a forum last week.
