Although I wasn't present at the incidents resulting in the charges brought against Matt Coffland at JITH and his place of business at the Tiger Pub, I can't help thinking the two incidents are related and politically motivated. I've known Matt Coffland for a long time, professionally and personally. He's always been fair and just to me and others I've seen him in contact with. He is very serious about his job, both in his place of business and as a public official as Belmont County commissioner, but yet a fun loving person. I spoke to him on the phone the night he was en-route to JITH, the night the alleged assault had taken place, and was in a good mode. He said he was taking the family out to relax and have a good time.
Matt Coffland has done a lot of good for the Belmont County residents as a Mead township trustee and county commissioner. As a public official, he is above average in helping the residents of Belmont County.
No, I don't think Matt Coffland should resign just because some residents have a high standard for public officials and will convict a person before due process of the law.
Yes, Matt Coffland will get my vote for county commissioner or if he runs for public office in any capacity.
