The hearing to remove Cuyahoga County elections board Chairman Bob Bennett has been postponed until April 16. This is the second postponement of the hearing, which was first scheduled for April 2.
Bennett’s lawyer requested the delay because of scheduling conflicts. Bennett, the head of the state GOP, is the only board member remaining. The other three resigned under pressure from Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.
The April 16 hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Euclid City Hall, 585 E. 222nd St., in the city council chambers.
No indication as to the precise conflict, but you can read here about the ongoing legal troubles for Mr. Chesley. If Mr. Bennett cared about the voters of this county, I’d think that he’d try to figure out a way to expedite this thing, one way or the other, and might not have chosen an attorney so far away and busy. You know, service above self? But what do I know.
