Anybody Remember Dan Congrove?

He’s the Summit County Councilman most noted for… landing his unqualified daughter Christine Congrove a $60,000 a year gig as Animal Control Director. Not bad for a 23 year old with no college degree.

But now, in a sweet turn of incompetence, I mean on the Three Stooges scale, he’s off the ballot because he couldn’t gin up enough signatures on his petitions. He only needed 50, but only had 42. I’m sure he’s dialing up lawyers even as you read this.

If some other councilman wants the job for an unqualified relative, Christine’s in trouble. I hope that she’s been saving her money.

As I’ve mentioned before, I have 4 kids griping about my inability to get them patronage jobs.

More on the Congrove and Summit County Nepotism here.
