An opinion piece by Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes, published Aug. 2, critiqued a 2021 report authored by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity that was prepared on behalf of the Franklin County Auditor. We welcome substantive critique to help clarify findings and resolve errors. However, we do need to respond to the factual inaccuracies and misinterpretations raised in Rhodes’ piece on the report, "Franklin County Auditor Report: Investigating the Appraisal Process.”

"We are in a time of collective turmoil. The COVID-19 pandemic, nationwide protests against police violence and sustained attacks on our democracy have shaken our country to its core. But it is no accident that these crises weigh most heavily on Black and brown communities."  Read Kyle's full OpEd in The Columbus Dispatch.
