Last Sunday the Columbus Dispatch wrote a nice story about how Ohio Auditor and now Candidate for Lt. Governor Mary Taylor works most of the time out of an office in Canton near her home.
The office where Mary Taylor says she "works".
One of eight "regional auditor's offices".
Ohio auditor often working near her Canton home
State Auditor Mary Taylor is the first statewide executive officeholder in memory to work most of the week from an office outside the state capital.
The arrangement by which she often spends several days a week working from a regional auditor's office in Canton, about 20 minutes from her home, allows Taylor, mother of two teenage boys, to be with her family most nights.
Taylor, who acknowledges that she did not bring up her unconventional plan during the 2006 campaign, oversees administrative duties and communicates with her Columbus staff electronically and via conference calls. She generally is in Columbus one or two days a week.
"I'm elected state auditor, I'm not just the auditor of Columbus," said Taylor in a telephone interview last week from her Canton office, one of eight regional auditor's offices.
A ProgressOhio member stopped by Mary Taylor's Canton office this Tuesday at 4pm. and described what they found as a "Ghost Town". No one was there and there was absolutely no evidence that any work was ever done there.
They were so appalled that they took a couple of quick pictures and sent them into us.
No Computers, no phones , all the cubicles unused and unoccupied.
Remember, this is the place that Mary Taylor described as "one of eight regional auditor's offices" and supposedly the office from which she performs her duties as Auditor "most of the time".
Reminds me of Jon Husted when he said he lived in Kettering, but the facts were that if he did he never actually showered or flushed the toilet there.
