A transparency committee sent to Lucas County by Ohio Secretary of State John Husted has recommended three members of the board, along with its director and deputy director resign.
The committee says Director Gina Kaczala, Deputy Director Daniel DeAngelis, Board Chairman Ron Rothenbuhler and board members Jon Stainbrook and Anthony DeGidio should resign. That would leave only John Irish on the board.
The recommendations will be sent to the Secretary of State for review. It is unclear if any of the board members or directors will take the committee's advice and resign.
The committee has been meeting with the board on a weekly basis over the past month after Secretary of State Husted said the board is "seemingly incapable of overcoming petty differences and personal issues in order to solve problems."
"The fact is this one's not working, and it hasn't been working, and so we just didn't know how to go forward, and quite frankly, at some point it was really going to affect an outcome of an election, and I think that was something we were going to be afraid of," said Transparency Committee Chairman Scott Borgemenke.
Members of the committee cited "dysfunction" within the board, saying board members are frequently fighting and arguing with one another. Specifically, the committee says a lost memory card on election night sparked a fight between board members.
"It's a step in the right direction; that you basically have to start from scratch. I'm completely perplexed why they kept Mr. Irish on the board," said Stainbrook.
The committee said Irish is the newest board member, and in their opinion he is trying to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
