UPDATE: Riegle, Oman butt heads at commissioners forum

Hancock County commissioner candidates, incumbent Phillip Riegle, and his challenger, former commissioner Steve Oman,  spent most of today’s commissioners forum arguing.

They are opponents in the May 6 Republican primary race.

The question and answer forum was sponsored by The Courier, WFIN-AM, WLFC-FM and UFTV at the University of Findlay. The event was moderated by Doug Jenkins, news director for WFIN.

Riegle aggressively defended his record in office, while raising questions about Oman’s performance as commissioner. Oman, the “one-issue candidate,”  was well prepared to answer questions about county issues that went far beyond just flood control.

Courier Reporter Denise Grant covered the debate and is developing the story.

WFIN will broadcast the forum at 6 p.m.

WLFC will air the forum at 6 p.m. Tuesday; at noon April 18; at 4 p.m. April 20; and at 10 a.m. April 21.
