Householder’s Son Is Among 19 That Applied for Vacant Seat

A week after former Rep. Larry Householder (R-Glenford) was voted out of the legislature by his House colleagues for “disorderly conduct” related to the House Bill 6 scandal, his son — Derek Householder — has applied to fill the legislative seat. He’s one of at least 19 candidates who want to be the next 72nd House District representative. House Speaker Bob Cupp (R-Lima) has said his caucus will move quickly to fill the vacant seat. 6/24/2021
