As one of the leaders of the campaign for Issue 6, which voters passed overwhelmingly in hopes of ending county government as they know it, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason ought to understand better than most how sick the electorate is of cronyism, patronage and pay-to-play politics.
He has to know that his decision to award a no-bid contract to a former employee is exactly the kind of suspicious deal that drove the Issue 6 reform.
There’ll be a lot more on the relationship between the PD and Mason, soon. ?And I’ve been real hard on the PD. ?But I must say, it looks like there are good people within the PD ed board finally deciding that Bill Mason and taking credit for passing Mason’s Issue 6 isn’t worth their own soul.
