Ohio's new secretary of state hires ousted elections chief
(2007-01-10)
(WOUB) - A former county elections chief in western Ohio who was removed from office by former Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell has been hired by his replacement.

Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner has brought on former Auglaize County elections director Jean Burklo as a field representative.

She'll assist election boards in nine western Ohio counties.

Burklo lost her job last April following a state report cited her for improper conduct.

A special prosecutor, though, found she didn't break the law or attempt to defraud voters.
