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.
Cleveland.com is reporting that the State Auditor is in fact investigating city council. We have also learned the the Auditor has staff on site at city hall.
It has been confirmed that the State Auditor is investigating our City Council to determine if they violated state sunshine laws. City Council all but admitted guilt by throwing out their flawed appointment process and restarting it from scratch last Monday after being called out for potentially violating Sunshine Laws by Cleveland.com. The Strongsville GOP has called on Councilmen DeMio , Carbone and Schonhut to recuse themselves from the process by abstaining on voting for council appointments.
Government first and foremost should be transparent and follow the rules. Join us at the council meeting tomorrow night at 8pm and demand that City Council adopt a transparent process for making the appointments to fill the empty seats on Council.
We believe that City Council should adopt a public and transparent process for evaluating candidates for appointments. Similar local appointments have used a public worksheet that requires each councilman to evaluate candidates on a set of core competencies that are relevant to the position (such as knowledge and competency in economic development, city operations, budgeting, zoning and administration). This level of transparency will hold our elected officials accountable and prevent cronyism.
