Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Last week the News-less-Herald chronicled the thirteen people (most of whom have no hope) that would like to replace Judge Tim Grendell.
Here is the list they posted:
* Jamie Callender, Concord Township
* John Eklund, Chardon
* Christopher Galloway, Concord Township
* 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.
