There is certainly a lot to LEARN about Politics in Richland County Ohio, maybe this will answer some of your questions?
Drew Tyler should love this?????
As suggested below I contacted the Secretary of State and talked to a David, here is a recording of that conversation. When I advised what I was told here by local board of elections you will hear him say their office cannot consult what to do and to seek private legal advice, ARE YOU KIDDING ME, I thought this was the Secretary of States JOB to advise?
Part 1 – Call to Secretary of State 12/10/2015
I talked to Board of Elections today and they advised in great detail everything I needed once I got someone on the phone who had the answers. The only exception I forgot to ask about the Independent deal where they are saying I can’t run for 2 years being I voted Republican in the last Major Election even though I am a Registered Independent?
Sorry for the long period of silence, who ever answered had to find an answer to my first question, took nearly 5 minutes to find the deadline to file as an Independent for Commissioner? You can skip to the 5 minute mark when I ask a follow up question I am then forwarded to someone who actually knows all the answers, Bill Freytag – here is that conversation.
Part 2 Call to Richland County Board of Elections 2/25/2016
After this conversation I did call back to ask Mr Freytag about the Independent requirements, the guy who answered said he was not available but did answer my question, kinda sorta? Appears this person like the first one I spoke with did not answer my question correctly or maybe I just asked it wrong? Being this was today 2/25/16 and the deadline has passed for the Primary I would hope one who is answering these questions as being truthful and not misleading as Ms Baumgartner advises they may be doing? Oddly enough I did not hear him say Primary until playing this back, so benefit of doubt maybe just a misunderstanding again?
Part 3 Call Back to Richland County Board of Elections 2/25/2016
Below is a CONversation the MP Group on facebook had discussing the issue of Independent candidacy for the upcoming 2016 Election Year. What do you think, should running for an office be this difficult or misleading? No wonder people believe its just one big buddy system? Top to bottom its hard to get a straight answer, then you need to CONsult legal counsel?
This is gonna be good 👍
2 in the Mike Skidmore meeting are petitioning for seats. 😄 I only need 30 more signatures to run against the other guy. Connie will get a pass in the primary 👍👍
Unfortunately Connie had signatures on her petition disallowed by the Richland County Board of Elections. CALL CONNIE ON THIS!!!
