Humane society members to elect new board


As part of an ongoing effort to improve the efficiency and public image of the Humane Society Serving Logan County, the existing board of directors has set an extraordinary membership meeting to elect an entirely new body of individuals to lead the organization.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. Friday, July 18, at the Hilliker YMCA.

The decision came after an investigation by Steffen Baldwin, owner of the Marysville-based Animal Cruelty Task Force of Ohio, determined that a deficiency of board members and nepotism on the board were a detriment to the organization, the primary function of which is to oversee the management of the Top of Ohio Pet Shelter.

There were only five people on the board, including two married couples, during the most recent membership meeting in April. The organization’s bylaws calls for 11 directors.

There were also concerns about how many paid and current members the organization had at that time.

The board determined at that time to reach out to past members to determine if they still had interest in being part of the organization and then setting a slate of candidates for a summer meeting to elect a new board.
