Commissioner candidates clash on complaint

Matt Westerhold • Aug 30, 2012 at 6:42 AM

Erie County commissioner candidates Dick Brady and Steve Kraus appear live at 1 p.m. today on "Between the Lines."

Also, win two free tickets in Cedar Point Trivia contest during the program.

Brady is an independent candidate in the four-man race for the seat against six-term incumbent Tom Ferrell Jr.  Krause, the Republican candidate in the same race, replaced GOP primary nominee Tom Lendrum after Lendrum withdrew. Huron councilman Brad Hartung is running as an independent in the race.

Brady filed a complaint last week with the county elections board and the Ohio secretary of state's office contending Kraus is an ineligible candidate under the Ohio Revised Code. While it appears secretary of state John Husted's office already has made a ruling in favor of Kraus, the county elections board is not set to meet and review the complaint unitl Friday. 

Sandusky city commissioner Diedre Cole also is a guest on today's BTL. 


The Cedar Point Trivia free tickets contest continues this week, with clues given during today’s program. When you hear the question, post your best answer in the comments section below the BTL blog online. Guesses must be posted 2-7 p.m. Thursday.

The first person to answer correctly wins two Cedar Point tickets.

Last week's winner was Horace Mann, who correctly answered southern yellow pine. The question was: The Mean Streak is made up of 1.7 million board feet, or about one mile, of what type of wood?
