New Miami, OH mayor-elect wants to settle the years-long speed camera case

New Miami mayor-elect Stephanie Chandler wants the village to settle the 5-year-old, $3 million-plus speed camera case and “stop spending taxpayer money on attorney fees.”

Chandler won the mayoral post by a 63 to 37 percent margin last week, ousting incumbent Bob Henley.

New Miami was sued by a large group of people who were fined by the village’s speed camera program that was later ruled unconstitutional. A judge recently ruled the speeders were owed $3.4 million.

In her response to questions from this news organization for an interactive voters guide before the election, she said the case needs to end.
