The Clerk of Courts position is a full-time job that pays $117,000 per year. Amber Zibritosky makes her own schedule. When we say that Ms. Zibritosky takes about 10 weeks of paid time off per year, we mean it. And we are willing to back it up.

Open these files to see the original data, produced via public records requests. The data is derived from Ms. Zibritosky’s swipe card usage.
And now, to dispense with some excuses that Ms. Zibritosky’s campaign is likely to use:
- “Covid kept me at home” – There is no discernable connection between the pandemic and Ms. Zibritosky showing up at the office. Her attendance record is consistent for the past 2.5 years.
- “Some of this data isn’t even from my swipe card” – The City of Stow law department informed us that Ms. Zibritosky used the swipe card of her predecessor (Diana Colavecchio) from March 6, 2019 to June 7, 2019, so we included those months within this data.
- “I was working from home” – We asked for evidence of working from home. The City of Stow law department had said there is “no available record of [remote] login/access.” (Regardless, when you’re directly managing employees, you need to be present.)
- “The security guard let me in, without me using a swipe card.” – You’ll note, on days where Ms. Zibritosky is at work, there are numerous swipes in, out and around the courthouse. On the days we claim she was absent, there are none. It’s possible she entered via security on occasion, but those dates would show other swipes around the building. If there was even one swipe on a given day, we gave her credit for showing up.
By contrast, Mike Rasor will show up and work hard.
