Theft in Office convictions will force Clark Swank to give up two public positions he holds near and dear to his heart. Under state law, a felony conviction prohibits Swank from continuing to serve as a Worthington Township trustee. He has not resigned yet, but is expected to submit a letter soon. Swank also cannot serve any longer as Richland County Fair Board president. Vice-President Bill Rieman says he will become president and Swank will be permitted to stay on the board as a member. Swank was found guilty last week of stealing $4000 worth of diesel fuel from Worthington Township's pump. He will be sentenced July 14th. Meanwhile, the fair board also must find a replacement for Fair Manager Dean Wells, who passed away in April. Rieman says that will not be done until after the fair in August, and he does not expect it to be affected by the absence of a manager.
