Atty Gen: Dann (D) Proposes Stronger Public Records Law
UPDATE: After posting the following, I was notifed that the press conference in Toledo today was cancelled due to a scheduling conflict. There will be a press conference in Columbus tomorrow, August 23, at 9:00 am in the Ohio Senate Minority Conference Room, on the 2nd Floor of the Ohio Statehouse.
In the wake of recent revelations that former Bureau of Workers Compensation head James Conrad engineered a cover-up of millions of dollars in investment losses at the Bureau just days before the 2004 General Election, attorney general candidate State Sen. Marc Dann (D-Liberty Township) will hold a press conference today at 11:00 a.m. at Vintage Coins & Collectibles, 3509 Briarfield Blvd, Maumee, Ohio to unveil proposed legislation to substantially strengthen Ohio's public records law, and to discuss a new public records request he is making of the governor, the auditor, the attorney general, and the BWC to find out what they knew about the cover-up.
Dann is a better attorney general right now, just using methods available to him as a legislator and citizen, than Betty Montgomery (R) was when she sat idly by while this whole mess was developing.
