Tea party's Kohls to take on SB5 sponsor in primary
Feb 4, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Cincinnati Enquirer
State Sen. Shannon Jones, sponsor of Republicans' failed right-to-work effort in 2011, will face a primary race from Warren County Tea Party leader Kelly Kohls, fresh off her exploration of joining a primary ticket to challenge Gov. John Kasich.
A Warren County judge on Friday lambasted Clearcreek Township officials for holding what could be viewed as illegal secret meetings.
“Frankly, I’m going to warn you right now: Don’t operate this way any longer,” Common Pleas Court Judge James Flannery told township officials.“You brought on a litigation that was totally unnecessary.”
Testimony wrapped up Friday in the two-day trial in which township officials are accused of violating the Ohio Open Meetings Act by holding prearranged, informal meetings in Administrator Dennis Pickett’s office a half-hour before the public session to discuss agenda items and other matters.
The law requires that public officials take official action and conduct all “deliberations upon official business” only in open meetings unless the subject matter is specifically exempt by law. It defines meetings as any prearranged discussion of public business that includes a quorum of the public body.
At issue in this case is whether discussions held between a majority of the three-member board during the gatherings qualify as deliberations.
“The issue is, did they do it? And it sounds like they did it. Now I need to know, what are they doing behind closed doors?” Flannery said.

I had heard that Wade had the opportunity to eat crow and pay the 35k fine, originally. His arrogance in fighting this will possibility cost the taxpayers of Clearcreek Township over 200k in fines....way to go Wade ! Thanks for wasting more of our tax dollars ! Why is this clown still in office ?
Just One Reason WHY Ed Wade is still in office and that is Just Because only 490 Springboro Voters agreed to continue their enslavement to Ed Wade's corruption and waste of our hard earned tax dollars. Only 490 votes separated the election results between Ed Wade's corruption and Cathy Anspach's good public service to the people over these past four years.
Good old boy Bad politicians like Township Trustee Ed Wade get elected into office because only 490 plus One good people in the community did not choose to Vote him out.
Could it be that these good people cannot Read the Bad news about Ed Wade's True History?

Unnecessary Levies & Taxes

When you look at the accumulated events WADE, PICKETT, LAMB, WILHELM, and others are in, then you begin to get a clear picture on how CURRUPT the Clearcreek Township Government really is.
