Cleveland.com is reporting a second time today on the alleged illegal actions taken by Councilmen DeMio, Carbone and Schonhut: "two of the five remaining council members - Michael Daymut and Gordon Short - had been left out of the selection process. She said Councilmen Jim Carbone, Joe DeMio and Matt Schonhut chose the winning Ward 2 and Ward 3 applicants, who reportedly were Annmarie Roff and Kelly Kosek, respectively."
In light of these allegations and the impending investigation by the State Auditor, the Strongsville GOP has called on Council President DeMio, Councilman Carbone and Councilman Schonhut to recuse themselves from the process of appointing the vacancies in Ward 2 and Ward 3. We further call on the remaining members of council to adopt a transparent process that includes a public worksheet for evaluating the candidates for council appointments. Simply repeating the same tainted process will do nothing to repair the trust of the voters.
