Ousted parole board members got good reviews
Personnel files obtained by The Associated Press show two Ohio Parole Board members removed by the state prisons director without warning earlier this year both had good reviews. Board member and former Columbus police officer Cathy Collins-Taylor was praised for her hard work, responsiveness and reliability two months before she was removed. Board member Jose Torres was deemed enthusiastic and respectful and was thanked for his dedication to the prisons department. Director Gary Mohr says he made the changes to improve the system and find the right people for the right positions.
