CUYAHOGA COUNTY, Ohio: Sen. Dale Miller proposed a recall statute that, if approved, would give residents the right to recall county officials for misconduct in office. According to reports, Miller sponsored the law after additional federal charges were filed in a corruption investigation involving Cuyahoga County Auditor Frank Russo's office. Miller noted that although the proposal is complicated it's "worth doing." "We will have to take into account both charter and non-charter counties," said Miller. Although the proposed statute currently only addresses county officials, Miller said that he is contemplating adding language that would allow voters to recall school board members.[1]
