Ex-employee joins Wayne trustee race

DEVAN FILCHAK | The Journal Gazette

A former employee of the Wayne Township trustee's office will face off with the current trustee for the seat's Democratic nomination.

Porsche Williams filed her candidacy with the Allen County Election Board on Tuesday, one week after Austin Knox, the current trustee, filed.

Knox was unanimously selected by a caucus in January 2020 to replace his mentor, Rick Stevenson, who retired. Before Stevenson's retirement, Knox was the deputy trustee, and Williams was the director of intake and investigations.

Williams resigned from the position in 2020 and now is the office manager of the Adams Township trustee's office.

Candidates began filing Jan. 5 for Republican and Democratic primaries. The deadline to file is noon Feb. 4.

The primary election will be conducted May 3.
