Medina Twp. candidate back on Nov. 6 ballot

MEDINA — The Medina County Board of Elections voted Thursday to allow Medina Township trustee candidate Dinah Lambert to remain on the ballot despite putting the wrong election date on her petition.

Lambert was originally disqualified from running, but the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office said the error was not severe enough to take her off the ballot, said Medina elections director Sue Strasser.

Instead of putting Nov. 6 as the date of the election, Lambert listed Nov. 11, Strasser said.

Thursday’s meeting was also the last for Republican Ray Laribee, who is resigning from the board.

Democrat Pam Miller will also be replaced as a board member until the election is over because she is running for re-election as president of Medina City Council in November.
