Greene Co. elections board fires employee

A Greene County Board of Elections clerk was terminated following a unanimous vote by members during an emergency meeting Monday afternoon.

The four-member board fired Hayley Lewis following a 25-minute executive session.

After the closed session ended, the public meeting resumed and Doris Adams, a county elections board member, made a motion to terminate Lewis. Adams cited “behavior or conduct deemed offensive or undesirable or which is contrary to the county’s best interest.”

The board did not elaborate on the reason or events that led up to Lewis’ termination.

The board of elections deputy director, Llyn McCoy, declined to give details on the employee firing stating she was following the instructions of the board.

Lewis has been an elections board employee since September 2008 when she started working part time for the agency. She has been a full-time employee since 2011.

She was one of six full-time employees working at the agency responsible for overseeing the county election process and for providing services such as election ballot preparation, electronic booth testing and voter registration.

Lewis’ most recent position was an entry-level clerk that processed voter registration cards, answered phone calls and other miscellaneous duties. She was paid $10.92 per hour, according to data obtained from the county auditor’s office.

The county election board administered the May 7 special election where a Beavercreek City municipal income tax and a Fairborn City School District levy were on the ballot.
