Change for Ohio

This image was taken at a rally in Toledo on May 20. My brother Matt is next to me. He's campaigning this year for the 49th District State House seat. His website offers some great streaming video.

We're getting things rolling for him in Toledo, as he's in his seventh year serving as a City Councilman in Oregon, where he's done a hell of a good job.

We're proud to be working together, and working hard to change Ohio for the better. Here is an inspiring vision statement from Ohio's next Governor, Ted Strickland, who lit up the crowd at the Martin Luther King, Jr. terminal in Downtown Toledo Saturday.

These elections, like most, will be decided by those who work hard, smart, and genuinely offer people hope and vision for our future. I'm very optimistic.

No matter who wins the Governor's race, I'll be cheering that Taft is gone. Good riddance to that P.O.S!

Frank- you demonstrated your passion for honesty in politics at yesterday's Council meeting, a value that it hard to see in the political arena these days.

Frank,

What is it, specifically, that brother Matt has done such a "hell of a good job of" out in Oregon? As a resident of Oregon, I am not sure that I have seen anything substantive that he has delivered. He did start a "committee" to do the "new master plan" but that kind of got muddled up with all the different people who joined the "committee and expressed an opinion! Oh well, good luck to brother Matt in his endeavor as a candidate for a house seat.

I'm glad to see Matt has a web presence, his site is very well done.

I don't know as much about him as I do you Frank, but from what I have seen, I agree he would be an excellent representative for our area.

Frank,

I was never one that was part of the A team or the B team in the Democratic Party. I just wanted democrats to win. But after watching how the B team has handled the elections in 2005 (blowing three judicial races, blowing district 6, and if you, Vasquez, Shanahan, and Copeland would have been endorsed by the party, I honestly belielve both Sarantau and Betty would have lost); making back room deals to get a republican elected president of council; failing to unify the party on the district 3 appointment; failing to unify the party with this most recent appointment; and having a three way primary that wasted resources and left hard feelings in the commissioner's race (not to mention that resulted in an inexperienced carpet bagger who tried to bully two long-time democrats out of the race), you need to get to work and begin organizing and plotting strategy to get a majority of the central committee.

You blew a chance in 06. We can't afford to blow another chance in 08. Start today recruiting people to run for the slots. I am counting on you to make it happen.

That's always been my m.o. as well. Presently my energies are directed to my family, electing Democrats to state offices, and trying to be the best councilmember I can be.

When I think 2008 I think presidential election, and restoring integrity, intelligence, and progressive policy to our federal government.
