Critics earlier this year alleged that Bernie Fiedeldey, a Colerain Township trustee, violated state ethics laws by hiring his grandchildren as township park employees for the last few years. He tried to deflect blame by saying he wouldn't seek a third term as a trustee. Now, however, he's telling supporters he might run again after all. Say it ain't so.
Earlier this spring, former Colerain Township Clerk Kathy Mohr filed a complaint against Township Trustee Bernie Fiedeldey with the Ohio Ethics Commission, alleging he failed to disclose relationships with seasonal park employees and violated conflict-of-interest rules when the township awarded contracts for two construction projects.
