Political Mailer Causes A Stir In Seneca County

4/26/16 – 7:25 A.M.

A political mailer in Seneca County sent out just before the March primary still has people talking. The Review-Times reports a Political Action Committee called “Citizens for Seneca County” sent out a postcard urging voters to cast a ballot for anyone but County Commissioner Holly Stacy. The treasurer of the PAC listed on the mailing was Former Fostoria mayor and current Seneca Industrial and Economic Development Corporation director John Davoli.

Davoli spoke to the Review-Times and said he didn’t approve the flyer. He said his responsibility is for invoices. Beyond that he said he had no comment.

Stacey told the newspaper, “I have concerns about someone in that position having a part in this.” While she doesn’t believe Davoli acted alone, she isn’t speculating who else is part of the group. While no one else has come forward, two financial contributors have apologized to Stacey. County Commissioner Fred Zoeller and Andrew Kalnow, president and CEO of National Machinery in Tiffin, were listed as donors to the PAC.

Stacey adds she doesn’t believe her opponent in March, former executive director of the SIEDC Rich Focht, knew the extent of the group’s plans.

Stacey won reelection in March, taking 53 percent of the vote.
