Dear Voters of the Ohio House 94th District,
The League of Women Voters of Athens County strives to provide you with nonpartisan resources and information you need to make informed decisions when you vote. This year we have an uncommon situation in which one of the candidates for the 94th Ohio House District, Tanya Conrath, served as our League Treasurer before running for office. As such, we want to share the steps we’ve taken to ensure a non-partisan and transparent process.
First, when Conrath decided to pursue the nomination, she resigned from her position as Treasurer and was removed from all board communications.
Second, our Voter Guide always provides the candidate responses without any editing by the League. Both candidates, Jay Edwards and Tanya Conrath, are invited to participate in our electronic Voter Guide, Vote411.org. The questions for the Voter Guide are written by the League of Women Voters of Ohio (a separate organization with a different Board of Directors), and the same set of questions is used for Ohio House races across the state.
Third, our candidate forum processes are designed to treat all candidates fairly. However, we realized that the current situation would require extra steps to eliminate the appearance of preferential treatment. After considering many options and consulting with the candidates, we recognize that we are not the right organization to host a forum this year. We encourage other local organizations to consider hosting a forum for the 94th District candidates.
We take our non-partisan stance seriously and work to provide voters with information you can trust. We do not support or oppose candidates or political parties. Throughout the League’s history, we have welcomed members of all political parties, as well as independents.
