From our friend Marian McMahon, the very fine writer with the Gazette Newspapers……here is her article on the Commissioners’ resolution on accepting campaign contributions from the employees under their direction.
Since we are mentioned in the article, and we stated that we were going to give it more consideration, here is our current thinking on this subject.
We believe Mr. Dave Lima of Mentor is correct regarding the passed resolution falling short by not including board appointees and private contractors. We sent an email with the following language to the Lake County Commissioners to either create a new resolution or amend the previous resolution.
“We are in full and complete support of prohibiting the Lake County Commissioners from accepting campaign contributions from any individual or group that receives any Lake County Board appointment, or contract with any Lake County non-profit or governmental agency.”
