Letters were delivered to nine county prosecuting attorneys and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office demanding investigations be opened involving public safety related to water supplies.

On Friday, June 18 at 11:00 a.m, Ohio Community Rights Network (OHCRN) members delivered requests calling for a criminal investigation to be opened by the Attorney General (AG) and county prosecutors across the state. The Ohio AG is the chief law enforcement officer in the state and Ohio’s county prosecuting attorneys are “ministers of justice and the voice for victims at the county level. As ministers of justice, prosecuting attorneys play an integral role in our public safety.” 

OHCRN and residents throughout the state have evidence of the State of Ohio and businesses violating the law and endangering public safety.
