An open letter to Secretary of State John Husted:
The appointment of the former Putnam County Board of Elections director, who was fired from her job, has been submitted for approval as a board member for the Republican Party in Putnam County.
I trust that you have the good judgment to appoint someone else who has not filed lawsuits against the county, caused disruption, and cost the county a significant amount of money.
The taxpayers and voters in this election year deserve much better.
This witch hunt has gone on far too long. The office is running smoothly and one of the best in the state. Let’s keep it that way.
The choice is yours.
— Ann S. Dillinger, Ottawa
