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.


  1. thanks, but formatting seems to be off. The right hand portion of the page is cut off- appears to be missing about 1/3 of the text. As long as that third is Galloway you can keep it cut out (LOL)

  2. Sorry about the formatting problems. Laziness (cutting and pasting) throws off the formatting.

    You people deserve better.
