Resign Mayor Tommy Templeton of Chesapeake Ohio

Our Mayor is a mess. He needs to leave. AS PER WSAZ:

Chief Randy Lewis gave the village council and Mayor Tom Templeton his two week's notice.

Lewis puts the blame on the Templeton, "I'll not lower my standards and my integrity for someone that doesn't have any."

But Templeton said he's done nothing wrong, "he was grossly insubordinate."

The rift is clearly evident with his boss.

"I hate that it came to this, I really do," Lewis responded.

In a three-page letter, Lewis said Templeton wants too large of a focus put on writing tickets to pay the village bills.

While Templeton has an opinion letter from the village solicitor upholding Templeton's powers to act as a law enforcement officer inside village limits, Lewis said it's just an opinion and Templeton's lack of training puts his officers in danger.

"My officers are going to have to risk their lives if he gets into a mess to try to come and help him,” said Chief Lewis. “So it's an unnecessary risk. He has no sense of liability for the village."
