     -- Those who want to see West Chester Twp. Trustee Mark Welch lose in November have launched an opposition website while the candidate’s landing page is still “under construction.”

    Butler County Democrats launched MarkWelchForTrustee.orgon Tuesday, the day before early voting was set to start in Ohio.
