COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The head of the board overseeing Ohio's beauty salons has resigned after a state watchdog determined he improperly intervened in a salon's attempt to discipline a contractor renting a booth from the business.
The Plain Dealer in Cleveland (http://bit.ly/1d64DPC ) reports Board of Cosmetology Executive Director Jim Trakas submitted his resignation Tuesday. In a letter to the board, the former Republican lawmaker apologized for bringing "bad publicity" and said he's stepping down so the board can move forward.
The Office of the Inspector General said Trakas shouldn't have required the Aqua Hair Salon in suburban Columbus to retain a contractor for two or three months in exchange for eliminating a $500 fine against the salon. The report says the salon had problems with the contractor's work station cleanliness, language and behavior.
