Record sealed for former Hubbard councilwoman
Pleaded guilty to making false statements on election petitions
WARREN — A Trumbull County judge sealed the criminal record of a former Hubbard councilwoman, who had been convicted in 2019 of two counts of making a false affidavit or statement concerning an election petition.
Lisha Pompili-Baumiller, 57, after pleading guilty in July 2019 to a bill of information in connection to false election petitions concerning her candidacy for Hubbard council, Pompili-Baumiller was sentenced to serve two years of probation, but was released from probation early after serving less than three months, according to newspaper archives and court records. Trumbull County Common Pleas Court Judge Andrew D. Logan on Tuesday approved expunging that record.
The Trumbull County Board of Elections in February 2019 asked the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office to investigate irregularities it uncovered with Pompili-Baumiller’s nominating petitions to run for re-election in the 3rd Ward. It appeared on two separate instances one person signed two names on her petitions, which led to the investigation that led to the charges. The signatures in each case involved a husband and wife.
In November 2019, Pompili-Baumiller lost her seat on council as a write-in candidate to Michael J. Mogg Sr.
Baumiller had run unsuccessfully as the endorsed Democrat in the 2018 primary against Trumbull County Commissioner Frank Fuda.
