Lorraine Fende is useless. Everyone knows she is the accidental candidate forced into politics by her father many years ago.
Moving along...Fende has been useless for two years: she has nothing substantiative to the legislation coming from Columbus. Fende's only accomplishment: tax hikes.
Fende has stayed in office by intimidating elected officials into endorsing her--how? Lorraine Fende's relationship with Judge Larry Allen is powerful--just ask Willoughby Mayor Dave Anderson.
Fende's only use of her influence on legislation has been promised appropriations--just ask Mayor Bob Weger about the money he was promised for Willoughby Hills. This promised appropriation helped Fende get Weger's endorsement.
This brings up the last point: Dave Fiebig.
Dave Fiebig had almost everything going his way: an at-large elected official in a modestly affluent community, the right party designation this year--yet he lost by a slim margin.
Fende beat Fiebig by 491 votes. 491 votes! That is a 1.76% margin! What? Fende has beat almost everyone 60-40 during the past few elections.
Perhaps if Weger, Reichelt, and company did something to help Dave Fiebig he could have sent Fende back to Larry Allen's couch full time.
SHAME ON YOU BOB WEGER! SHAME ON MOST OF THE MEMBERS OF WILLOUGHBY HILLS CITY COUNCIL! WE ARE NOW STUCK WITH FENDE FOR TWO MORE YEARS JUST SO YOU COULD GET $100, 000 APPROPRIATION AND INCREASE INCOME TAXES.
Now that Fende is in the minority for her last term she will be even more useless for the next two years.
