LUCAS COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Michael Miller, Toledo Free Press Editor in Chief
months ago, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted placed the Lucas County Board of
Elections under SOS administrative oversight and assistance. That long-overdue
move helped protect the integrity of the elections process from the BOE's
a report issued last week, SOS-hired consultants who evaluated the Lucas County
BOE recommended that Director Meghan Gallagher and Deputy Director Dan
DeAngelis be removed from office.
Predictably, at a Feb. 26 board meeting, no movement was made toward following
the SOS recommendation. There is no indication that any of the SOS's efforts
will effect change, or that any confidence has been restored.
This era of BOE operation will be remembered as an utter failure, a humiliation
on a statewide level, and an example of managerial incompetence that lowered an
already pitiful standard in Lucas County.
Husted has provided a solution. The BOE is ignoring it. Gallagher may think she
has outlasted the SOS intervention and "won," but Lucas County continues to be
the loser as long as she has a presence at the BOE.
