Council to weigh mayor's removal

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        DAYTON, Ky. — Dayton City Council members will hold a special hearing at 7 p.m. Nov. 14 to consider whether to remove Mayor Bobby Crittendon from office for alleged nepotism involving his son-in-law.

        Dayton City Attorney Jack Fischer said Wednesdaythat council voted Tuesdaynight to conduct the hearing and determine whether the mayor is in violation of an ordinance that bans nepotism — favoritism to relatives — in city government.

        “There have been some questions about promotions in the police department, and it involves the mayor's son-in-law, (Officer) David Halfhill,” Mr. Fischer said.

        “The mayor could be removed by a unanimous vote of council.”

        Attempts to reach Mr. Crittendon for comment Wednesday for unsuccessful.

        Mr. Fischer said the Nov. 14 meeting will be open to the public only if the mayor requests it, because it is legally classified as a personnel issue.
