Wed. 11:30: Ohio Supreme Court sides with Frenchko in election case

The Ohio Supreme Court on Wednesday granted Trumbull County Commissioner Niki Frenchko’s motion to dismiss a suit filed by former county Commissioner Dan Polivka seeking to remove her from office.

Polivka lost the November general election to Frenchko. But Polivka asked the court to reverse the win, claiming she isn’t a proper resident of Trumbull County because her daughter was attending school in Lake County during the election.

The court sided with Frenchko in several cases related to claims against her residency in the county.

This is a developing story, read Thursday’s Tribune Chronicle for more information.
