HUSTED REMOVES 2 PUTNAM BOARD OF ELECTIONS MEMBERS

Sec­re­tary of State Jon Husted, fol­low­ing a hear­ing a cou­ple of weeks ago in Colum­bus, removed two mem­bers of the Put­nam County Board of Elec­tions Tues­day for vio­la­tions of the state’s open meet­ings laws.

Husted and a hear­ing offi­cer lis­tened to argu­ments from Ann Dillinger and Mar­tin Kuhlman that they did not receive proper train­ing, their infrac­tions were tech­ni­cal in nature and not intended to deceive the pub­lic and that the elec­tions board had since cleaned up its act. It didn’t mat­ter in the end. Both were let go

Ear­lier this year, a county judge found the Put­nam County panel broke Sun­shine Laws on sev­eral occa­sions from 2008-10 and ordered more than $40,000 in dam­ages and attor­ney fees.
