MARION—The inconsistency and drama surrounding Marion City Auditor Robert Landon has now taken important time and attention away from the Marion Police Department.
While Landon was spotted at Marion City Hall on Tuesday, he has been absent from work for weeks while recovering from Covid. Marion City Councilman Josh Daniels seemed to launch Landon’s personal revenge tour when he pointed out to media that an invoice was sent from the Ohio Public Works Commission to the auditor’s office for more than $70,000, had only been partially paid.
