The quality of police training academies in Ohio and the need for stronger statewide training standards are among the issues an attorney general’s committee is considering as it explores possible changes to the way Ohio trains police officers.
Report: Borges Owes $500K In Back Taxes
A report says the candidate backed by elected officials to be the Ohio Republican Party’s next chairman owes more than $500,000 in state and federal taxes.
The Dayton Daily News reports Friday that Matthew Borges says he’s on a payment plan for some of the taxes but disputes most of them.
The report says that according to Franklin County court records Borges owes $493,624 in federal taxes and $98,397 in state taxes.
Borges tells the paper that a 2007 federal tax lien for $354,262 and the $98,397 in state tax liens stem from the sale of his $575,000 home being improperly reported as income.
Elected officials backing Borges for GOP chairman include Gov. John Kasich, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (BAY’-nur) and U.S. Sen. Rob Portman.
