Vacancies Abound on Panels Statewide

Written by 

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's inspector general has received a complaint that the state's Unemployment Compensation Advisory Council hasn't met in at least four years because members weren't appointed.
 
   The Columbus Dispatch reports other state boards and commissions also are missing members or not meeting as outlined by law.
 
   Information provided to lawmakers indicated 327 appointed positions open on more than 130 state panels last month. At least three other panels have no members.
 
   The complaint about the unemployment compensation panel was filed by a former lawyer with the Bureau of Workers' Compensation.
 
   A spokesman for the inspector general told the newspaper he couldn't talk about a complaint's status.
 
   Gov. John Kasich's (KAY'-siks) spokesman, Rob Nichols, says it's sometimes hard to find qualified appointees, and occasionally a panel is intentionally left vacant.
