Who in the World (Lake County) Will Replace RINO Sines?

RINO Sines, Lake County Commissioner, and Red State Strategies' Client is not going to run for County Commissioner.  That's old news.

Who is going to run to replace RINO Sines?

Sines' Wikipedia needs some help by the way.  That may become a side project for us.

However, we want to open up the discussion on who will replace RINO Sines.

The filing deadline to participate in the Spring Primary is December 7th.  The party machines hate primaries.

Let's start with the D's.

Now, that old man Larry Allen is out and needs to keep providing for his soon to be bride, Lorraine Fende-Serge, we think he would be a good fit in the State House.

That leaves Lorraine Fende-Serge as a possible candidate for Lake County Commissioner.

The other obvious choice is Judy Moran, Willowick Council President.

Cat fight!

Lessons to Learn from Cuyahoga County Corruptions Woes

We will talk about this issue in more detail, especially as it relates to Lake County.

As you all know yesterday's news brought more us another reminder why the inhabitants of offices, board rooms, etc. need to be closely watched and scrutinized.

Former County Commissioner and an alleged co-conspirator have had additional charges filed on them related to extortion, racketeering, and running a criminal enterprise.

This is no surprise.  This is not the new lesson to learn either.

However, in the transcripts of wiretapped conversations we get a glimpse of people who think that they are above the law, do not respect the law, and view the public treasury as an ATM.

Only a fool would think that similar attitudes and behaviors are not had by Lake County Municipal, County, and other leaders.  Perhaps for the moment the headlines have not featured the names of a local Mayor, Councilman, or County Official.  That day may or may not be coming...soon....

What did Judge Grendel Mean? Who was he talking about?

About a year ago then State Sen. Grendel said the following when discussing who could replace him when thought about leaving taking the House Seat he won while serving as the OH-18 State Senator:
What did he mean?  Who was he talking about?

Meet Your Next Western Lake County Judge

Best in the Field.

Who else is running against Judge Field?

The Vacated OH-18 Seat

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Here is the list they posted:

* John Advey, no residency available
* Jamie Callender, Concord Township
* Walter “Skip” Claypool, Chester Township
* Wayne Clough, Madison Village
* John Eklund, Chardon
* Christopher Galloway, Concord Township
* Becky Lynch, Mentor
* Colleen O’Toole, Concord Township
* Michael Petruziello, no residency available
* Mark Saric, Chester Township
* Charles Stevens, Chester Township
* Dr. Ted Peterson, no residency available
* State Rep. Ron Young, Leroy Township

OK.  So you can see that our scanning committee has narrowed it down.
Three candidates are well know: former State Rep. Jaimie Callender, State Rep. Ron Young, and TAXN' trustee chris galloway.  John Eklund is a downtown lawyer who could be a compromise candidate.

What's the compromise?  Well, most of the political world hates Taxn' Trustee Galloway--save former Democrat-turned-Republican State Sen. Tom Patton.  Galloway, besides working to increase taxes on everyone, has run a lot of dirty campaigns.  Galloway has worked both sides at once.

Rep. Ron Young on the other hand has not exactly won a lot of friends.  Ron Young has the support and endorsement (behind the scenes) of U.S. Rep. LIEtourette.  However, LIEtourette is taking heat from the unions on Ron Young.

No Young?  No TAXN' trustee galloway?  John Eklund would be a good compromise.
Let's hope for a brutal battle in the primary.  Both Galloway and Callender are candidates for the general.

Dusting off the Keyboard

The tipping point has been reached.  We can't let the dust get any thicker on the keyboard.  Too many tax hikes and con men plying their trade.

The flim-flam man Taxn' Trustee Chris Galloway got a puff piece (w/video) in the New-Less-Herald the other day.

See the Taxn' Trustee Galloway write-up here.  Watch the video and be prepared to laugh.

How nauseating.  This guy raises taxes all over the county: Dunlap's bail out, the end-run around ORC to collect an income tax, ..., and now he is working on a sales tax increase.

Worse yet--Taxn' Trustee Galloway wants access to more people to raise taxes on.  He wants the OH-18 Senate seat appointment and to run for the new seat in the general.

Look at Galloway's lame website here.

Flim-flam.  Taxn' Trustee Galloway.
