“As prosecutor, I will continue to provide the highest level of service to all of our clients,” Haller’s statement reads.
Haller on Aug. 27 had announced he would seek the position again.
Alice DeWine, Gov. Mike DeWine’s daughter, left the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office in April and is now working for the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office. She told this news organization late last week that she was considering challenging Haller in the next election.
“It’s certainly something I’ve been considering over the past month,” DeWine said. “It’s something I’ve been thinking about and talking to people about, but I haven’t made an ultimate decision.”

“I appreciate his service to Greene County, and I wish him well,” DeWine’s statement reads.
