For the Tenth District of the Ohio Senate, the candidates are Chris Widener, Reed Madden and James Howard. The editors of "Weapons of Mass Discussion" are proud to announce our endorsement of Chris Widener to this seat.
Mr. Widener has broad support across Republican constituencies and has appropriate experience for the job. In a bio piece on the candidates, Chris Widener stated, correctly in our opinion, that the greatest problem facing the 10th District (and the state as a whole) is our economy and business climate. Widener understands that a multi-pronged approach of lowerering the tax burden and improving our educational institutions are key components of bringing about the sort of change needed in this state.
One of the things we like about Widener is that he's conservative and young enough to be a vital part of the Ohio Republican revolution. While we can appreciate the dedicated service of Reed Madden to Greene county, we don't believe that promoting Madden is the appropriate strategy at this time. And we'd like to encourage young, Mr. Howard to remain engaged in the political arena and who knows what may happen down the road.
"Weapons of Mass Discussion" is proud to endorse Chris Widener for the Tenth District seat of the Ohio Senate and encourage readers to vote for him on March 4th.
