Buckwalter wins Endorsement!

Editorial: Buckwalter right for Greene County court

By the Dayton Daily News | Thursday, September 23, 2010, 04:40 PM
2010 Election

Click here to read a letter of support for each of the candidates.

Greene County is getting a new common pleas judge because Judge Timothy Campbell is retiring.

The fall contest isn’t as lively as the primary, when three lawyers sought the Republican nomination. Mike Buckwalter prevailed in that contest, and now he faces Democrat Joe Graf.

Greene County is overwhelmingly Republican, but, in judgeship races, the candidates’ political party doesn’t appear next to their name on the ballot.

Both candidates have good reputations; either would do well, but a slight nod goes to Mr. Buckwalter.

He’s an experienced lawyer who has handled a variety of cases, civil and criminal. He has been a magistrate, acting judge, arbitrator and law clerk. He clearly has been thinking about things he would like to do as a judge, things that would save time and money.

Mr. Buckwalter, 53, was in line to be a common pleas judge some years ago through appointment by the governor. But a political tussle at the time got in the way.

Now he’s going for the job the hard way: running in what is a low-profile, though still expensive, contest. He loaned his campaign $60,000 in the primary and says he may put still more into his race.

In the past, Mr. Buckwalter has been active in Republican Party politics. If he’s elected, he needs to stay out of the party’s work. As a judge in a small, tight-knit, Republican stronghold, he needs to be sensitive to being impartial and apolitical.

Mr. Graf, 63, was the Greene County public defender until he retired. He has his own law practice and has been an acting judge in Fairborn. He has been involved in a plethora of community activities. Some years ago he ran for juvenile court judge and lost in a primary by fewer than 100 votes, a hard way to lose.

Mr. Graf supports merit selection of judges. (Mr. Buckwalter does not.) He also would like the Greene County prosecutor to start a diversion program, which would divert some non-violent offenders from being charged (and getting a criminal record), provided they did certain things that showed remorse and a willingness to stay out of future trouble.

Both candidates are concerned about jail capacity in Greene County, what with one of the adult detention center’s four pods being mothballed and another being used for a drug and alcohol treatment program.

Mr. Buckwalter and Mr. Graf both could do a good job. This is no-lose election at least for voters. Mr. Buckwalter’s energy and passion give him the edge.

Anderson wins Endorsement!

Editorial: Anderson is better for Greene County

By the Dayton Daily News | Saturday, October 2, 2010, 12:00 AM
2010 Election

Click here to read letters of endorsement for the candidates.

Greene County voters can either re-elect Republican Alan Anderson as one of their three county commissioners. Or they can take a chance on Democrat Steve Key.

They should re-elect Mr. Anderson.

An attorney who has represented local governments — including Beavercreek Twp., Jamestown, Yellow Springs, Clifton and Spring Valley — he was elected four years ago. Judging from his literature, he wants voters to know that he’s not raised taxes and that he opposes “Obamacare and Obama socialism or any form of socialism.”

Pressed about what he’s trying to reassure voters about, he concedes that concerns about socialism don’t often come up in his role as county commissioner.

Mr. Anderson says his interests as a commissioner have been bringing high-speed Internet service to rural areas of the county; improving the capacity of the county’s water department and getting Clark State University to have a physical presence in the county, which it does now have just off I-675.

Mr. Anderson can be overly parochial, witness his reluctance to vote to put up much money for the Dayton Development Coalition. Given just how hard that group advocates for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, that’s hardly an expenditure to be stingy about.

And there’s something unfair about Greene County kicking in a lot of money when the Base Realignment and Closure Commissions are in full swing, but then pulling back after any threats have been repelled.

Protecting Wright-Patterson, after all, lasts beyond the BRAC rounds.

Mr. Anderson has experience that’s relevant to the job, and he can dig into issues that he cares about.

Mr. Key says his employment is a contract to gather local statistical data for the U.S. Department of Commerce. He’s also worked as an organizer for the Kerry and Obama campaigns in rural counties in Ohio and formerly he was a bank trust officer.

His campaign literature quotes Gary Haines, the former Montgomery County sheriff who died in 2000 and has since been succeeded by two different sheriffs. Mr. Haines, Mr. Key says, called him “Mr. Fix It” with regard to a gun buy-back program.

Mr. Key believes county commission meetings should be televised, and he’s critical that the commission has all Republicans on it. Asked what he takes issue with that the county is doing, he had no major criticisms.

Mr. Anderson’s local government experience goes beyond the four years he’s been on the commission. That background counts for something. To move out an incumbent, Mr. Key has to make a stronger case than just that Greene County is too cozy.

Austria wins Endorsement!

The following is an Endorsement by the Dayton Daily News editorial board, published at

Editorial: Austria better for Republicans in Greene, Clark
By the Dayton Daily News | Wednesday, April 21, 2010, 03:18 PM

2010 Election

It wouldn’t be an election without John Mitchel on the ballot.

The retired Air Force officer from Beavercreek has been running for something almost every two years since his first major bid for office in 1998, when he ran for governor as a Reform Party candidate.

(Remember third- party presidential candidate Ross Perot? That was his party.)

Since then, he has run, as a Republican, for the U.S. Senate, and also against former U.S. Rep. David Hobson — twice. Now this year will be his second run against Congressman Steve Austria, who represents Greene and Clark counties.

Give the guy credit for persistence.

But he’s still the neophyte that he was in 1998, when he had 20,000 copies of his school funding plan printed.

In 2004, when asked what he wanted to do in the Senate, he said:

“My first act if elected to the Senate would be to lobby the president to sign an executive order to declare the unborn innocent ‘persons,’ thus giving them the full protection of the Fifth Amendment.”

Mr. Mitchel, 62, opposes the Obama health care initiative, the Obama stimulus, the bank bailout under former President George W. Bush, and he supports the (unworkable) FairTax plan, which would eliminate the federal income tax, substituting a sales tax.

He also charges that Greene and Clark counties are steeped in cronyism that results in sweetheart deals for Republican insiders.

Congressman Austria is completing his first term in Washington. He was effectively handpicked by Rep. Hobson to replace him when he retired; Rep. Austria’s wife was on the congressman’s staff.

Previously, Rep. Austria served 10 years in the Ohio Senate.

As a freshman in the minority party, Rep. Austria could hardly be expected to make a big impact. In fact, though, he did get national attention for telling the Columbus Dispatch, in a discussion about his opposition to the Obama stimulus, that Franklin Roosevelt caused the Great Depression (which, of course, began way before the president was elected).

In talking about his job, Rep. Austria emphasizes constituent service, which, of course, does come with the position. But it is the most routine part of it.

He’s much less comfortable taking tough positions. He rarely diverges from his party, although he did vote for the administration’s Cash for Clunkers program.

He said he was persuaded by auto dealers that some of them would go out of business without this incentive.

On the other hand, Rep. Austria opposed the $787 billion stimulus program, without which unemployment would be immeasurably higher, and he is critical of the Bush bank bailout (that occurred before Mr. Austria went to Congress).

(Many economists believe that the bank and insurance failures that surely would have ensued without the Bush administration’s intervention could have pushed the country toward a Depression.)

Rep. Austria has refused to support earmarks, even though that was one way former Rep. Hobson made sure that Wright-Patterson Air Force Base got some of the improvements and commitments it needed sooner rather than later.

Rep. Austria was, for a while, reconsidering that position; then all the Republicans in the House said they wanted a moratorium.

It’ll be too bad if important advocacy for the base falls to U.S. Rep. Mike Turner and Ohio’s U.S. senators alone. That would be copping out, for political convenience.

Rep. Austria doesn’t face a serious challenge this year and is unlikely to any time soon unless he really fumbles. He’s cautious, so he’s not a disaster waiting to happen.

For the privilege of that job security, he really does need to seize the important platform he has. He has work to do to grow into an aggressive advocate for the region and for the issues he cares most about.

Alan Anderson wins endorsement!!

Below is an Endorsement of Alan Anderson by the Dayton Daily News. The article was published April 12th 2010 and can be found here,

By the Dayton Daily News | Monday, April 12, 2010, 05:48 PM

Virgil Vaduva has some ideas that are beyond the fringe. As pertinent, he’s running for the wrong office.

He’s challenging Alan Anderson in the Republican primary for Greene County commissioner.

However, his complaints, he said, are not with Mr. Anderson, but with Commissioners Marilyn Reid and Rick Perales. He suggests they have a special relationship with the Dayton Development Coalition that results in their campaigns benefitting, but he can’t explain what he means.

Mr. Vaduva’s views, which he characterizes as more Libertarian than Republican, are most intense about national and state politics. He says taxes are a “violent means” of taking people’s property.

The immigrant from Romania says he has been involved with some Tea Party activists and that he helped start the Xenia Liberty Group.

Specifically, he complains that property taxes in Greene County are too high, though the county commission gets little in the way of property tax proceeds; most of that tax money goes to schools. In an interview with the Dayton Daily News, it wasn’t clear whether Mr. Vaduva understands that.

Considering the issues he’s hottest about, you’d think a legislative office or even a school board seat would fit the Cedarville resident who works in information technology better.

He also criticizes the Greene County Children’s Services Board as an example of a government agency that spends too much employing people as opposed to providing direct services. That characterization is bewildering because, of course, the bulk of that agency’s budget is going to go toward people — those who investigate abuse complaints, those who monitor children in foster care, those who screen and recruit foster parents.

Though he’s pleasant, Mr. Vaduva is the wrong person for this important job.

Mr. Anderson is completing his first four-year term. He is earnest, but unlikely to ever grow into the most knowledgeable commissioner. Nonetheless, he has carved out some interests.

For instance, he’s especially focused on the fact that much of Greene County — he says half of the county’s land mass — doesn’t have fast, reliable Internet service and is instead dependent on dial-up.

That’s horribly frustrating for those trying to work at home, for children trying to do school work and for anyone who wants to be part of the 21st century.

Whether Mr. Anderson is bringing together the right people or has found the solution isn’t clear. But he is paying attention to a vexing problem.

Mr. Anderson came into office after he knocked off Marilyn Reid in the primary four years ago. Ms. Reid had long been involved in the Greene County Republican Party and also represented the area in the legislature, though not without controversy. She has a long line of critics for her style and on substance; Mr. Anderson was seen as a more go-along-get-along kind of person.

With a term under his belt, no one would suggest he is going to be the person who leads any bold transformation of Greene County’s ways of doing business, and he isn’t politically courageous.

(Though he should have been defending the Dayton Development Coalition and what it does for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and especially for Greene County, Mr. Anderson was on the side of whacking the money the coalition gets to advocate for the region.)

Mr. Vaduva, who has never attended a county commission meeting, isn’t interested in the work of county government. Sticking with Mr. Anderson is the better choice.

Jarrod Martin wins Endorsement!

The following is an article from the Dayton Daily News that appeared on the website on April 5th 2010.

Editorial: Freshman Martin best for 70th Ohio district
By the Dayton Daily News
| Monday, April 5, 2010, 03:55 AM

There are some unusual doings this year in the contest to represent voters in Beavercreek, Fairborn and Xenia in the Ohio House of Representatives in Columbus. Freshman Rep. Jarrod Martin, of the 70th District, is being challenged in the Republican primary by a candidate who shouldn’t be written off.

Xenia City Council member Bill Miller is not drawing any particular philosophical distinction between himself and the incumbent. He grants that they are the same kind of conservative.

He does complain that his opponent has not initiated legislation on the major problems of the day: jobs and the economy. But freshman members of the minority party in the House are not typically the ones who drive major legislation.

Basically what we have here is a challenger who has long wanted to be in the legislature and was disappointed to lose in a crowded primary in 2008. Mr. Miller also didn’t come in second.

Now he hopes that public anger at incumbents — plus a one-on-one contest — might be enough to pull him in, against a first-term representative who, like most first-termers, is not exactly a household name.

All that is fair enough. But voters lack any compelling reason to change horses, to put a new freshman in and start over on the learning curve that all freshmen face.

The two candidates appear to be of roughly equal ability. They had similar political backgrounds before the 2008 primary. Mr. Martin was a member of the Beavercreek City Council.

Rep. Martin wants to allow local school districts to opt out of the requirement for all-day kindergarten, though he was, in an interview with the Dayton Daily News editorial board, fuzzy about how that would work, as on the details of other subjects.

Neither candidate is brimming over with ideas for dealing with the state’s looming budget crisis, though Rep. Martin suggests looking at sentencing rules, a proposal made by other Republicans last year.

Mr. Miller insists that spending is “out of control,” but offers little to support that, in the face of repeated and steep budget cuts. He does say that $1 million in federal stimulus money is slated for signs labeling various projects as stimulus projects, which he opposes.

Mr. Miller has the support of some local elected officials. He specifically touts the support of the mayors of Beavercreek, Fairborn and Xenia.

Rep. Martin cites a good many more endorsements, which is to be expected.

That there is some support for each reflects a certain tribalism in Greene County Republican politics, a matter of little relevance to voters.

The incumbent hasn’t shown signs of playing a major role in Columbus, that he will stand out as a party leader, or as a facilitator of inventive bipartisan solutions, or as a policy expert in some area. But he is only 30 and has time to develop. He has been a diligent and earnest lawmaker.

The challenger also has not demonstrated that he would be an exceptional choice, though, he, too, would presumably be responsible about the work.

The 70th District has legitimate reason for wondering if it is represented as well as it might be. But, in the choice it faces, it would do best to stick with the young incumbent.

Does Chris Redfern hate babies?

An Open Letter to Chris Redfern, ODP Chairman

February 8, 2010

Chris Redfern, Chairman
Ohio Democratic Party
340 East Fulton Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215

Dear Chairman Redfern,

As you know, ours is a non-partisan organization, and we can demonstrate strong support from both Republicans and Democrats. That is why I was optimistic that there existed a basis for communication on issues of common interest following my recent meeting with you which from my perspective went well. You correctly pointed out that Governor Strickland has been supportive of certain aspects of our agenda, and you certainly acknowledged that there are many Democrats who are sympathetic to all or part of our agenda as well.

Since then, my optimism has waned.

Your heavy hand was reported to be the major factor in forcing Jennifer Garrison, a supporter of pro-life positions, from the Democratic statewide ticket for next fall. It was hard not to interpret that action as a direct slap at the millions of Ohioans, whether Democrat, Republican or Independent who support the cause of life.

Now I am witness to one of the pettiest acts I have ever seen by a so-called political leader. Speaker Budish, as you may know, denied the request of Rep. John Adams to bring an outstanding young constituent, Elizabeth Trisler, to the House floor to receive a proclamation for her achievement in winning the National Right to Life Oratory contest. Her speech, Mr. Redfern, was a powerful and eloquent expression of her deeply held views regarding life. She is the kind of young woman we all would be intensely proud to have as a member of our family.

As you know, the recognition in the House Chamber of outstanding achievement by Ohioans has never been subjected to the kind of political litmus test applied by Speaker Budish, whose office says she was denied the recognition given thousands of other young Ohioans over the years because it was "political." I wonder if Mr. Budish would allow recognition of a champion debate team only if he agreed with the side it advocated in the championship. Shame on Speaker Budish, with whom we will communicate separately.

You can readily see, Mr. Redfern, these two actions in just a week's time appear to be a direct attack by your party on the pro-life constituency in Ohio.

My question of you, then, is whether you were sincere when we met. I reported our meeting to my Board, and now feel misled by you. Every appearance is that you and the party establishment are captive of pro-abortion ideologues, so much so that even the simple recognition of a student's achievement must be rejected for fear of alienating this constituency. What can I report to our constituents concerning the position of the Ohio Democratic Party? I will share your response to this letter with our Board and membership as well.

In the spirit of non-partisanship, I would also like to invite you and your wife to be my guests on the evening of March 5 for our event featuring Sarah Palin as speaker. I am sure you agree that her commitment to life, as evidenced by the way she and her husband welcomed a developmentally challenged son into their family, is inspiring. Please let me know if you are able to attend so that I can make arrangements.

And please know that we would be equally delighted to provide a forum for a solidly pro-life Democrat of national stature. You have only to ask and we will arrange an appropriate event.

Hopefully yours,

Karl Rove on Ohio!

Some funnies...

This is one of the most interesting perspectives on Lawyers, Law, and Politics

This is copied from an e-mail that is being passed around...

Barack Obama is a lawyer. Michelle Obama is a lawyer.

Joe Biden is a lawyer.

Hillary Clinton is a lawyer.

Bill Clinton is a lawyer.

John Edwards is a lawyer.

Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer.

Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate).Every Democratic presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school.Democrat leaders in Congress:Harry Reid is a lawyer.Nancy Palsies a lawyer.

John McCain was a naval officer and aviator.

President Bush was a businessman.

Vice President Cheney was a businessman.

The leaders of the Republican Revolution: farmers and businessmen.

Newt Gingrich was a history professor.

Tom Delay was a businessman.

Dick Armey was an economist.

House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.

The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.

The last Republican president who was a lawyer? Gerald Ford, who left office 33 years ago and who barely won the Republican nomination as a sitting president, when running against Ronald Reagan, an actor,in 1976.

Democrats often scorn or attack men who create wealth, like Bush and Cheney; or who heal the sick, like Frist; or who reflect on history and speak for conservatism, like Gingrich.They often see successful business people who provide goods and services to the American people and our trade partners as actual enemies of the less successful. Rather than raising the less-successful to success,Democrats keep them dependent while punishing the successful with higher taxes and more business regulation.

At whom does Obama and his Congressional lawyer-leadership point? Pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains, large retail businesses, investment firms and bankers, and anyone producing anything of value in our nation.

This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes of lawyers.
Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in this case their base among the American people (unions, teachers, minorities, activists,trial lawyers).
Lawyers seek to have new laws passed; they seek to win lawsuits; they press appellate courts to overturn precedent; and lawyers always parse language to favor their side. This is their objective; this is their training.Confined to the actual practice of law,fine. But it is an awful and improper way to govern a nation.

When lawyer-politicians begin to view some Americans as clients and other Americans as opposing parties, then the objective of winning becomes all-consuming.It requires that someAmericansbe seen as“adverse parties” of their own government. We are not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit, regardless of the vision of those on the Left.We are citizens of a republic that allows us liberty, opportunity, and the right to strive for success and happiness in a free market economy.

Today, we are drowning in laws; existing laws are contorted by judicial decisions; the current administration seeks an omnipresence in all parts of our once-private lives. Many Americans have the wisdom to realize that Hope does not come from expanding welfare via liberal lawyer-politicians,but from personal dreams nourished by a sound education and hard work.Perhaps by 2010 more Americans will recognize that more lawyer-politicians with more power will only make our debt larger and our problems worse.

The United States has 5% of the world?s population and 66% of the world?s lawyers! Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in frivolous lawsuits and huge medical malpractice suits. This tort reform effort has continually been blocked ~ even from being voted on ~ by the Democrat Party, and once again is excluded from any of the 2000 pages in the Democrat constructed healthcare bill. When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association goes to the Democrat Party who refuse to demand or even support tort reform, then you realize who is ultimately responsible for our medical and product costs remaining high.

Mike DeWine wins Endorsement!

Ohio Right To Life endorses!

Ohio Right to Life PAC Endorses Statewide Candidates
Powerful Slate of Pro-Life Candidates Committed to a Culture of Life

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) - The Ohio Right to Life Society PAC today announced its endorsements in five of Ohio's statewide races.

"The philosophical direction of the United States Senate hangs in the balance and we have learned the hard way that elections do have consequences. The election of Rob Portman to the United States Senate should be priority number one for the pro-life movement to ensure that abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion does not become part of any national health care plan. It is an absolute responsibility for the men and women of Ohio's Pro-Life movement to support Rob Portman, who supports, promotes and has defended a culture of life throughout his career," said Mike Gonidakis, on behalf of the Ohio Right to Life PAC.

Marshal Pitchford, Chairman of the Ohio Right to Life Society Board of Trustees stated:

"The Right to Life movement in Ohio is fortunate to have experienced and highly qualified pro-life candidates seeking the State's executive offices."

"As a former speaker of the Ohio House, Jon Husted brings a wealth of practical experience to the office of Secretary of State. As an adoptee, he also brings a first-person view of the value of life and the importance of providing women positive alternatives to abortion."

"Throughout his career, Mike DeWine has been a pro-life champion. In the U.S. Senate, he sponsored the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which reflects the fact that attacks on pregnant women can injure or end two lives. As Attorney General, he will defend the value of all human life."

"John Kasich had an outstanding pro-life voting record during his career in Congress. His running mate, Mary Taylor, is an articulate advocate of the right to life movement. As Governor and Lt. Governor, they will reflect the common sense and common decency of the people of Ohio."

"Josh Mandel has defended life and freedom as both a state representative and a marine in Iraq. He will bring the same boundless energy and "can-do" attitude to the office of Treasurer of State."

2010 Ohio Right to Life PAC Statewide Endorsements

The following outstanding candidates received the Ohio Right to Life PAC endorsement due to their commitment to Life. These candidates clearly represent the Pro-Life movement within Ohio and Ohio Right to Life is proud to offer its endorsement and support. The choices for the upcoming election are crystal clear. (Further endorsement actions may be taken at a later date in the race for Auditor of State).

Letter from Mike DeWine

Dear Friend,

Richard Cordray needs to join 13 other state attorneys general in calling for the removal of a provision in the national health care bill that exempts the state of Nebraska from having to pay for any newly eligible Medicaid recipients.

Ohio is bleeding jobs and facing a $6 billion budget deficit next year. The last thing Ohio taxpayers can afford is to foot the bill for Medicaid recipients in Nebraska!

Richard Cordray needs to stand up to fellow Democrats Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and President Obama before Ohioans are forced to pay millions in increased Medicaid spending for services we’ll never receive. I urge him to speak out and join his fellow attorneys general who have already asked Congress to remove the “Cornhusker Kickback” from the health care bill.

This provision is beyond outrageous. It amounts to a $100 million payoff to one senator for his support of the health care bill. Richard Cordray’s job is to protect Ohio. He needs to do the right thing and immediately ask for the repeal of this provision.

Very respectfully yours,

Mike DeWine

Welcome to 2010, Obama's last year.

Interesting article from I thought I'd share....
