BUSINESS DIGEST || Elections complaint
The Warren Area Board of Realtors announced Thursday it and the village of Lordstown are the subject of an elections complaint related to signs it posted in support of a project to build a TJX HomeGoods warehouse in Lordstown.
The Realtors board said the complaint was filed by Brett Dickson, a Lordstown resident who led a successful effort to get a referendum on zone changes for the project on the ballot.
The board said it "will address [the complaint] in a timely manner with the Ohio Elections Commission," and noted its support for the TJX project and zone changes.
