Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) Report
What Happened Last Year
I have submitted the following document to the Village Mayor who I believe has the authority to remove commission members. If he cannot I am sure that he can request Council take action.
Concerning Mr. John Wainscott :
He has given false information to the Amelia Business Association.
He has created an atmosphere of the fear of guns being pointed at people within the village.
He has used violent expressions in newspaper articles, emails and public records requests,
His continuous use of scandalous name calling has brought threats of a possible law suit against the Village.
He has given false and inflammatory information to the newspapers.
Mr. Wainscott should:
1 - Be immediately removed from his position on the Park Commission.
2 - The Village should make a public announcement withdrawing any Village support of him and his organization.
3 - The Village should apologize to all residents for allowing these activities to go without remedy for such a long time.

Amelia Village Solicitor
I first print two copies of the document. One for the recipient, in this case Mayor Ellington and I usually provide a copy to the Village Solicitor. I then sign the documents and put them in separate envelopes and seal them,
If I am going to take them over to 44 W Main I just write the name of the recipient and "from John Toren" on the front of the envelope. I then go over to the Administration building, give them to Juli Wartman, and ask her to see that the recipients get them.
If I am going to send them regular mail then I address the envelopes, put a stamp on them and drop them off at the Amelia Post Office.
The Administration Building is at 44 W. Main Street, Amelia Ohio, 45102
The proper address for the Village Solicitor is:
Laura A. Abrams, Esq.
Sirkin, Pinales & Schwartz LLP
105 West Fourth Street
Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
