Edna L. Davis for Middlefield Village Council
Davis has been on the Middlefield Village Board of Zoning Appeals for the past two years. Prior to that, she spent 14 years as a village council member and 12 years as a Geauga County Commissioner.
“I have extensive experience in government and its operation,” she said. “I have been an advocate for those who may have unresolved problems with governmental actions and attitudes.”
Davis is concerned with council’s recent discussions on possibly eliminating the Board of Zoning Appeals and incorporating it into the Planning and Zoning Commission, which would make it more difficult for people to appeal decisions.
She would also like to stop plans for a more strict residential inspection regulation by the zoning inspector.
“Most of these severe complaints come because of the poor economic conditions and the number of bankruptcies of residential properties,” Davis said.
