Election Board does not certify 1-Cent Sales Tax vote

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

“I am not telling you that I consider it anything. I am suggesting that you consider it a valid complaint until the court determines otherwise,” Iski said. “It is the best and safest practice.”

“I have not treated it as a contest, it has been treated a complaint,” Dermody said.

“If it is a contested election we should collect a fee of $250,” Blouch said.

“I don’t know of any statutory authority for the secretary or this board to make a decision on this complaint,” Iski said.

“There are steps according to the digest that I need to make,” Dermody said. “I am trying to make sure if I am doing everything that is right and proper.”

“My advice to you…” Iski said. “ I am going to say this to you again.”

Iski proceeded to advise the board again to wait until after the hearing to certify the election.

“You would be acting outside the law to do otherwise,” Iski said.

“If the court decides this is not a valid election then we have to rehold an election,” Blouch said.
