The city of Plymouth, Ohio, started 2020 with a new Mayor. Madam Mayor Cassaundra Fryman has started her first term off by moving her city towards policies that advocate individual liberties and rights.
Just last week, Mayor Fryman dismissed all traffic tickets in the performance of her duties in the city mayor court.
We reached out to Mayor Fryman; I initially assumed the city council was involved in deciding it turns out I was wrong.
LC: "I saw that you and the council just threw out city traffic tickets?"
Mayor Fryman: "Just me, lol. I dismissed all speeding tickets last week."
LC: How does that work?
Mayor Fryman: "It's a standard mayors court as laid out by the Ohio Dept of Justice. It's a wild concept."
LC: Since your election and beginning office, how has the learning curve been of your city's elected executive?
Mayor Fryman: "It's a lot since my initial goal was to get rid of the mayors' court entirely. My police chief persuaded me to keep it. It is a process, and there has been a lot of learning how to apply libertarian governance to a small municipality and work within the existing system."
