The fact that Fox
received a gift was not part of the investigation.
alleged crimes stem from later failing to report a hotel stay, according to Tierney.
The investigation began in May 2012, when a three-person majority of Huron school board members agreed to submit a formal complaint to the Ohio Ethics Commission
alleged wrongdoing, which included an improper business relationship with a district vendor, improperly seeking reimbursements for a business trip and an extramarital affair on school time.

What has Fox
been doing for a living since being fired by Huron Public Schools
Sources say, he's been a house painter.
But what about the fact that he
has also been working for Kalahari?
Kinda like a few of the guys in the last Bush administration.

I don't believe the attorney general actually investigated Fox

It didn't take 4 years to find out.
It was known at the time all this started.
It only took 4 years because no one in Erie County
wanted to proffer charges against him.
Every time they passed the buck, it took that much longer to begin reviewing evidence from the beginning, and decide to bail on the investigation because they were all drinking buddies of Fox

Huron Schools needs to return the money spent by Kalahari on the football field since the Board felt so strongly about Fox having ties to Kalahari.
Only those 2 who consistently vote in favor of Fred Fox
At the same time, the football field money should not be returned.
All through this proceeding, Fox
attempted to force the community to accept his
cries of innocence as being true, with threats of loss of community support by Kalahari
Misdirection of the issue.
Keeping the money shows that you cannot buy public opinion.
At the same time, it partially reimburses the district for what Kalahari
should have been paying in property taxes, but didn't have to, because Fox
gave them a "sweetheart" abatement.
I have to ask a question.
When was the last time you went out drinking with Fox?
Did this little binge cloud your judgement of reality?

How many people, who did nothing immoral, went to bed every night, fearing the loss of their jobs, or their standing in the community, so that Fred Fox
could fight these allegations?
Julie, you are right in that this practice was immoral, I only mention this to show that more names should have been mentioned.
And as for Saint Pete's roof crashing down.
There is no hypocrisy or crucifixion of Fred Fox

Well, Mr. Right, I do not know Fred Fox

How you justify keeping the money Kalahari gave to the school system while berating Fred Fox
for getting the stadium money is ridiculous.
If, at the time of the awarding of the first abatement, Mr. Fox
had a good relationship with the board, and the board approved his
recommendations regarding said agreement, the board then is equally responsible for any sweetheart deal.
If the board votes in good faith because they were snowjobbed by Fox
