Former Warren council president asks attorney general's office to look into possible ethics violations

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Former Warren Council President Bob Dean has requested the Ohio Attorney General's Office and the Ohio Ethics Commission investigate what he's characterizing as possible ethics violations by five current council members and one former council president.

Dean tells 21 News he received complaints from current and former elected office holders and police officers in Warren and that prompted him to turn over information to the attorney general's office.

Dean would not detail what the allegations are, but he did tell us they allegedly involve conflicts of interest on the part of some city council members and an alleged violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Law.

Dean, who lost re-election as council president in November, would not provide copies of the documents to us.

He says he wants the attorney general's office to evaluate the information.

Dean also would not do an interview with us, saying he wants the focus to remain on the issues.
