GOP Names Butler as Trustee Candidate 

Ray Butler, a veteran CPA and a longtime friend and confidante of the late Trustee Bob Patterson, was nominated as the Republican Party's candidate for Trustee Tuesday night. Butler, who usually served as Patterson's treasurer during his various campaigns, won a first-ballot victory over four other contenders at a GOP ad hoc convention at Clark Tower.

Butler will oppose Democrat Paul Matilla, the current interim Trustee, in the August general election.
