State Rep. Chris Redfern plans a trip to Put-in-Bay on Saturday for a town hall-style meeting with residents and elected representatives on the island.
"This will be our 79th town hall meeting," Redfern told the Register this morning. "Every elected official has been invited."
Redfern represents the 89th House district, which includes Put-in-Bay and Ottawa and Erie counties.
He also serves as the Ohio Democratic Party chairman.
The Put-in-Bay town hall comes as Village Counsel struggles with allegations the police department is harassing some local businesses, has made false arrests and isn't investigating complaints from 15 visitors to the island who suspect they were drugged unconscious after drugs were slipped into their drinks.
A psychoactive drug was found in one victim's system after she became unconscious and got violently ill.
