Time to swap places on Election Board

The Hamilton County Board of Elections has a new director.

Pam Swafford, the former deputy director of the board, has swapped places with former director John Williams. The board’s leadership swaps roles every two years.

Swafford is now director and Williams is deputy director.

Also, George Vincent swapped places with Tim Burke. Vincent, who also runs the county’s Republican Party, is now chairman of the elections board and Burke, who heads the county’s Democratic Party, is vice chairman of the elections board.

Actually, this process is done every two years by March 1st. The party that receives the most votes in the last governor's race becomes the Director of the board. The Chairman is always the opposite party of the Director.
Thanks to Bob Taft, the GOP did not get the majority vote in Hamilton County in 2006. Thus the switch.

Maybe the new director can look into all of the wrongdoing and incompetence of the Repug staffers and do something about it, maybe hire an independnet prosecutor since Deters would never prosecute anyone with an R by their name.

I first read this that George Vincent became the head of the Democratic Party and Tim Burke became the head of the Democratic Party!
