Does the Willoughby-Eastlake School Board Vice President Brian Jones live outside of the district? Jones claims to live in his parents’ home in Willoughby Hills, but got married and bought a home with his wife in Kirtland. Jones’ wife is registered to vote in Kirtland, listing the homes address as her official address. Jones claims they live with his parents and rent out the Kirtland home, but if his wife does not live there why is she registered to vote there?
Previously, Jones attempted to illegally serve on both the Willoughby Hills Planning Commission and Architectural Board of Review while also serving on the Board of Education and unsuccessfully tried to get appointed to Willoughby Hills City Council in 2017.
At the May 10 board meeting, the board indicated that its attorney reviewed a utility bill provided by Jones and concluded it was sufficient to show he lived with his parents in Willoughby Hills despite his wife registering to vote at the Kirtland address.
Jones’ term is up at the end of 2021 and the board has two school levies on the ballot for the November 2021 election.
