Our former senator Gary Cates was appointed by Governor Kasich and Chancellor Jim Petro to Senior Vice Chancellor of the Dividion 
of Innovation and Enterprise Development at the Ohio Board of Regents. To fill that seat, two weeks ago an Ohio Senate Republican cacus screening committee met and reviewed Coley, State Rep. Tim Derickson of Hanover Township, Stuart Locke of Middletown and Mark Haverkos of West Chester Township. From that meeting Derickson and Coley were invited back for a second round of screening. A vote was taken the following Wednesday night, Coley received 134 votes and Derickson 110.
