The “Agenda” that the Montgomery County Board of Elections sends out is a joke. But, good luck asking for details. David Esrati, citizen journalist and potential Dayton City Commission Candidate was told he couldn’t make an in-person request for the “Conflict of Interest Policy for the May 2, 2023 Primary Special Election” that is on the agenda for a vote tomorrow.
This policy is probably in response to Dayton City Commissioner Matt Joseph being on the ballot- and his brother, twice un-elected/rejected appointed official, being appointed to be the deputy director.
Esrati asked the Director, Republican Jeff Rezabek for a copy. Rezabek responded send me a PRR- via email, and refused to produce the document.
He also claimed there is no legal requirement to respond within 24 hours (or the next business day) with an acknowledgement of a PRR. I’m still researching that, because every other organization does it as a matter of respect for the public.
This is a developing story.
