Chardon Muny Court Primary: Candidate caught admitting he tried to deceive public

Today the News-Herald discusses how the Chardon Muny Court Primary is getting brutal.

Trustee Matt Lynch, brother of former Euclid Mayor Dave Lynch, is filed a complaint against Dennis Coyne with the Ohio Elections Commission; both are republican party primary candidates, along with Daniel Bond, to replace Judge Mark Hassert.

The interesting part about situation is that Matt Lynch's website has a recorded phone call between Dennis Coyne and the Chief of the Bainbridge Police Department. In the phone call Coyne outright admits he tried to deceive the public! Wow!

One has to wonder who is working for which candidate and who cooked up the offending campaign literature.

This is not even debatable! Coyne was recorded admitting he lied.

Click to go to the website with the audio of the phone call.

Does public-records plaintiff seek access, or cash? | Columbus Dispatch Politics

Does public-records plaintiff seek access, or cash? | Columbus Dispatch Politics

The guy in this article seems to have turned the table on John Q. Law.

In a nut shell, a guy made a public records request per Ohio Revised Code (ORC) for 20 years of 911 recordings--form 1975 - 1995--from the Ohio City of New Philadelphia. The City could not produce the records pursuant ORC. ORC provides that the party that does not produce the requested records can be fined a $1, 000 for non-compliance per request per day. So, the guy calculates that he is entitled to $4.9 mil and asks for the money.

Law suits follow.

OK. You elected officials that read these pages will howl that this is a frivolous request and a frivolous law suit.

Just because the government and its agents can't do their job does it make the request frivolous?

Perhaps some public records requests will go into some Lake County entities.

Just Who is Harry Field?

Growing tired of seeing the Harry Field signs around town?  You must be tired of "Best in the Field."

It is not just the corny slogan that is troubling--it is also that Judy Moran is campaign committee treasurer. That's right, another member of the Willowick Democrat Mafia wants to help keep a strangle hold on Lake County.  The Willowick ties run deep.

Lorraine Fende, Judge Larry Allen's girl friend, cut her political teeth on the payroll of Willowick as council member, council president, and Mayor.

Harry Field is Larry Allen's magistrate.  See the Willowick tie-in?

So Larry Allen and Lorraine Fende want to foist Harry Field on us do they?

Let's hope not.

UPDATED: Breaking: Rob Frost to Step Down Later this Year

Yeah right...and the republicans will win something in Cuyahoga County.

Candiate Watch

Willoughby Muny Court: Karen Kowal V. Harry Field

Current OH-18 Senate District: Some (D) V. Jaimie Callender (R) or Taxn' Trustee Galloway (allegedly R)

Current OH-62: Larry Allen (D) V. Some (R)

Current OH-63:  Some (D) V. Ron Young (R)

Where does Lorraine Fende fit in?  Where does Dan Troy fit in?  Politicans, due largely to their ego, don't play nice and won't do what is best for the people or the party.  The smart play for the Dems would be Dan Troy running for the State House, and Lorraine Fende running for the Senate Seat.  That won't happen though.

The current OH-62 race which Troy SHOULD run for will most likely see Larry Allen first Dave Fiebig.

The most fun part of all this will be the scorched earth primary between Jaimie Callender and Taxn' Trustee Galloway.

BREAKING: Rob Frost to Resign as Republican Party of Cuyahoga County Chairman.

Frost is delusional. Frost thinks he can win an election.

Willoughby Hills budgets with caution -

Willoughby Hills budgets with caution - We have held WH's elected officials feet to the fire, and more tranparency has resulted. LAst year when we beat their tax hike back they progressively told more of their story to the NH and public. However, no one has talked much about the lying that was done over the amount of carry-over. When Weger and the gang started the tax hike process last year he claimed that carry-over would be about $30, 000. Woops! The article above has carry-over around $430, 000! Small mistake. Weger and the gang got their tax hike anyhow.

NH Asks: Why do Businesses Fail in this Economy?

Over at the NH's website they as "Why do Businesses Fail in this Economy?"

There are many reasons.

One reason is taxes and tax increases.  Oh, another: fees.

Willoughby Hills decided to punish some people who work in its cooperation limits with a tax hike.  Eastlake decided to heap fees on internet cafes.  Townships and school boards have increased property taxes.

Don't follow the lead of the small minded leaders and raise taxes.  Please don't hurt our employers.
