appointment to City Council of Pamula Thomas, former "Ombudsman" for Cincinnati Public Schools.
In political parlance, "Ombudsman" means "political hack," "tool," "flunky," "stooge" and "functionary."
COAST found her fingerprints all over the 2010 "Votes for Ice Cream Scandal." Her job in that year, among other things, was the voter registration of parents and 18-year-old students. Instead of focusing on the education of school children, they actually paid her to do that!
What does she plan to do on Council? Whatever Tim Burke tells her to do.
