CORRECTION:  In the post update of 07/14/2010, yours truly inadvertently attributed Stark County Auditor Kim Perez's expected appearance before the Stark County commissioners yesterday as having been reported by Kelli Young of The Repository.

In fact, this information was conveyed to the SCPR by Commissioner Todd Bosley in a conversation with The Report post-07/07/2010.  

UPDATE:  07/14/2010 AT 5:00 PM

Despite reports in The Repository that Stark County Auditor Kim Perez was to appear before county commissioners to take questions on his report, he did not appear.

Instead, in walker Stark County Treasurer Gary D. Zeigler with his lawyer, friends and family.  After doing a little county business normally conducted by commissioners interrupted the entrance of the Zeigler and his entourage, the commissioners immediately went into executive session to discuss "imminent or pending litigation" with Zeigler, his attorney and the county's attorney Deborah A. Dawson.

After the meeting was adjourned (post-executive session), Commissioner Bosley refused to say whether the executive session was about the county suing or being sued.  Chief Administrator Hanke deferred questions on the topic to Dawson.

Bosley did say that Perez would appear at a later weekly meeting, but would not specify how soon.

When asked before the meeting whether or not he would be asking Perez Conley's questions, he said "it depends."

Depends on what?



Today the Stark County commissioners are supposedly going to ask questions of Stark County Auditor Kim Perez and (hopefully) Stark County Treasurer Gary Zeigler regarding what local attorney Craig T. Conley has labeled "Zeiglergate" (the Frustaci matter).

But what kind of questions are they going to ask?

 Are they going to be of the powder puff variety?

That what the SCPR thinks what will happen.

The Report has received a fax from Attorney Conley outlining some research material he has dug out and then ends with a series of questions that he wants the commissioners to ask.

But will they?

Here is the Conley generated material:
