A lot of Republican's are Supporting tax hikes lately. Where do the Candidates for Commissioner Stand?

Ray Sines is helping Dan Troy and Bob Awful-dish raise the sales tax 0.5%.  Good job RINO Sines.  Right on!

What a disgrace.  Ray Sines. Dan Dunlap. Now, with a heavy heart we have to add Ed Zupancic.  We have always liked Ed Zupancic.  However, today's endorsement of a sales tax increase means Zupancic will lose all kind treatment on these pages.

Ray Sines' parting gift to the taxpayers in Lake County is higher taxes.  Dan Dunlap was worked hard to justify raising taxes on Lake County residents while reducing services.  That is no small feat, Mr. Dunlap!

Why could Ray Sines not just step down and allow the Republican Party in Lake County to appoint a successor, since he is not running for reelection?

The scary part is the number of Republican Office holder's and candidates that either support this tax increase or have supported tax increases (maybe some said they were against an income tax increase, but really were not).

There is a lot of Republicans supporting tax increases lately.

Where do Dave Fiebig, Dick Shreve and Linda Burhenne stand?  Do they support tax increases in this economy?  Do they understand the ramifications of Issue 2 failing?

Democrats Spending a Lot of Time on Primaries and Tax Levies

Lake and Geauga Candidate and Issue Filings for the March 6 Primary

Commissioners Move to Raise your Taxes (w/your consent)

Only you, well a majority of you, can help the Lake County Commissioners raise property taxes on all of us.  According to the News-less-Herald, avoider of all news the establishment around here doesn't like, "Lake County Commissioners voted Tuesday ...." to give you the chance to raise taxes.

Bob Awful-dish and Dan Troy  should be reminded during their campaigns of the numerous times they have helped raise taxes.  They won't care though.

Dan Troy Friend of Frank Russo and Jimmy Dimora is Running for the Ohio House

Lorraine Fende is useless and thankfully leaving the State Legislature.  Side note: After divorcing Daniel Serge years ago, the Mayfield Heights Fire Captain that went to jail for secretly taping children, is marrying the Judge she has been shacking up with for years--Larry Allen.

Now, we have the possibility of having Dan Troy replace her.  It can't get much worse.
Dan, Dan, Dan.  It makes sense now; all those articles with you talking about the size of government and spending.  Those articles didn't seem like you.  It is clear now.


More Choices

That magical time is approaching: the deadline to file petitions to appear on the March Primary Ballot.

Leroy Township Trustee Linda Buhrenne is going to compete for the Republican nomination.

At least we are getting rid of RINO Sines.  At least the entry of another republican candidate will force Dave Fiebig act more conservative.

Primaries are good and bad.  On one hand there is competition in the market place of ideas.  On ther other hand it is possible that candidates are bruised from a political beating.

Taxn' Ted and Judy Moran...nothing good can come from that either.

Do we have another choice?

Welp, the filing deadline is around the corner--and, we have some candidates declaring by pulling and filing petitions.

Never-seen-a-tax-he-didn't-like---TED Andrzejewski has filed petitions to run for County Commissioner.

Tax-Hike-Ted is currently trying to raise taxes on Eastlake so that he can continue to lavish generous pay and benefits on "the workers."  Eastlake residents must be ecstatic that may be able to get rid of Tax-Hike-Ted.  Ted's levy failed last November and now he is going for three more in March!

An old favorite is back again.

Councilman Dave Fiebig fresh off a loss against Lorraine Fende last year and an income tax hike in Willoughby Hills has also pulled petitions to run for County Commissioner.

If you think about it Fiebig would be a good replacement for Sines.  Think back to the almost primary challenge of Eastlake resident Mike Zuren that threatened Councilman Fiebig.  Fiebg was known on these pages as the self described moderate.

As you al know Willoughby Hills is filthy with people who want to raise taxes and reward the workers.  Weger, Somich, Reichelt, Chris Collins, ....Unfortunately, the stench of the recent income tax increase in Willoughby Hills will follow Fiebig.  It may not be fair, but neither is life.

Issue 2 Failure Symptoms Surfacing in Lake County--proposed cuts (threats) and more levies to follow!

Turkey day is over.  Now it is time to face some hard realities.

Let's take the Crown Jewel of Lake County, Eastlake Ohio.

Eastlake is facing around a $2 million in shortfall in its 2012 budget.

The voters in Eastlake had the sense (not in every area on election day) to defeat the 4 mill levy/5 year levy that the elected officials and bargaining units wanted.

Now that SB 5 is dead the City has its usual tools to deal with its expenses: proposed layoffs and levies.

Imagine a world in which SB5 passed.  The City of Eastlake and its elected officials could have told the bargaining units something along the lines of: "hey--our levy didn't pass.  YOU WILL take $2 million in concessions, but everyone keeps their jobs."

No chance of that now.  Just more levies and threats.

Yep.  More threats (the City asking department heads to make lists of proposed cuts to threaten the residents with) and more levies (three proposed for March).

Mourning Over, Game On

OK.  Our mourning period for Issue 2 is done.  It is game on.

SB5 has been killed by a swarm capital sucking parasites.  These pests feed on the fruits (capital--money) of our society by gorging themselves with banked sick days, retirement in the 50's, gold plated benefits packages and leave the rest of us with a bill.

They killed any and all reform of the problems they have caused using and incestuous relationship with elected officials.  In general, most elected officials are deathly afraid of the bargaining units working in their jurisdiction.   These elected officials usually work in concert with the cops, firemen, and other workers to raise our taxes.  The methods are always the same: bully, intimidate, scare, and lie to the public.

More later....

Harry Field's October Surprise: D.U.I. Arrest a couple of years ago

Interesting.  The News-less-Herald has been aware of this for awhile.

So wait a minute.  The acting judge that is working hard to be the next judge was popped for a DUIy?

That's what it looks like.

The News-less-Herald hates the news--it is part of the Local Media/Goverment Complex.

Mentor Municipal Court TRC 0302413B

Well that was fast!

A few days ago we learned that John Eklund will follow Judge Grendell-2, former State Senator Tim Grendell, to fill the OH-18 seat.

For months Taxn' Trustee Galloway has been slithering about the State of Ohio with State Senator Tom Patton trying to grease his way through the narrow pass guarded by the State Senate Republican Caucus.  Too many people despite Taxn' Trustee Galloway.

Here's the inside baseball:  Tom Patton (former democrat) met Taxn' Trustee Galloway at Blue Technologies...worked some of his...and was flipped from D to RINO in the process.  Along the way Taxn' Trustee ticked off a lot of people.  At the same time State Representative Ron Young was honing his conservative acumen and ticking off a lot of people too.  Let's not forget former State Representative Callender; he voted for Taft budget--'nuff said (not really, this is just taking too much space).  Last year Judge Grendell-2 ran for a few too many seats, but decided to abandon them both for an easy job on the bench.  The long and the short is that Taxn' Trustee and Ron Young accumulated too many enemies.  This left only John Eklund and Colleen O'toole as the compromise choices for OH-18.  O'toole is nice enough--but, just wasn't going to cut it.  The only one left standing was John Eklund.

Taxn' Trustee and his sycophants raged!  Nasty facebook posts ensued.  Sources tell us Taxn' Trustee was to rededicate himself to his constituents (read raising their taxes), his business (read working for both sides and threatening potential clients with primaries), ..., and family.  Boo hoo.  He wasn't going to run for office again.  Boo hoo.

Guess was.  Taxn' Trustee and Scott Marn want to be your next County Commissioners.   How can that be?  Taxn' Trustee just said he wasn't running for anything else; he was going to build this business (read recruiting dupe clients to threaten legitimate clients with primaries--that pretty Kyle-Sisk-esque).

Will this be another scenario where Taxn' Trustee pulls petitions for County Commissioner in a bid to scare someone into a deal?  How will Taxn' Trustee's clients benefit from a threatened Commissioner's run?

Hey wait!  Taxn' Trustee wasn't running for anything else!

Well that was fast!

Tune here for a lot more blow-by-blow coverage and analysis.
