Leslie Heath's Court Date with the Tax Man

BuckeyeState blog recently posted an entry regarding Leslie Heath's run in the UA City Council race. The Ohio Dept of Taxation seems to think that Leslie Heath and her husband owe over $11,000 in Ohio taxes. To see the court record, search on the Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas web site for the name 'Leslie Heath' or look at this screen shot.

Based on the feedback from our membership survey, nearly all of our 118 survey respondents indicated that unpaid personal income taxes or business bankruptcy would effect their vote.

Update: AsOhioGoes has also picked up the story and added to it.
