Kane can stay on the ballot for Athens Co. Sheriff
(2008-01-29)
(WOUB) - Steven Kane will be on the ballot for Athens County Sheriff.

That's the ruling today of the County Board of Elections following a hearing to determine whether Kane was qualified.

Kane is a Republican and a protest filed on behalf of the Democratic incumbent - Vern Castle - claimed he did not have the proper amount of law enforcement experience.

The Board ruled he did.

Kane says it was just politics...

Castle had also protested the candidacy of fellow Democrat Pat Kelly but that was withdrawn.
