Writer asks for vote for State Central Committee

Matt Borges, chairman of the Ohio Republican Party told a local newspaper reporter that they “will see that Mr. Jones and Mrs. Jones will not win.”

Chairman Borges should check with the Secretary of State and the county Board of Elections. He appears to be under the impression that State Central Committee is a reward to those who are good boys and girls and bow to their whims.

The last we checked, it was an elected position where the person whom wins the election represents the citizens that voted them into office.

When we are elected to this position, we will serve the people who elected us. We will tell the truth, and we will do what we say we will do. We will follow the Constitution and will work to return the values and principles of our Great Constitution to the Republican Party.

A simple look at the presidential races will show that the majority of the Republican voting base is fed up with the Party Establishment that is self serving rather than serving their constituents. There is no platform, standards, goals, or accountability within the State Republican Party. The incumbent members recently voted to endorse themselves and then voted to endorse Gov. Kasich in the Primary even though his approval rating in Ohio is 12 to 14 per cent. They then voted to suspend the rules and voted to tell the public that the SCC was unanimous in the vote.

Bottom line is that the SCC has become an elitist club for the lobbyists, the donors, the special interests, the politicians and the self-endorsed members. Guess what folks? You are no longer in the club. Send us to Columbus and we promise to listen to ALL republicans of the 6th district and make your voices heard.

This is an unpaid position. There’s nothing in it for us. We are both retired. We are fed up with the corruption, deceit, lying, using citizen contribution to fund their campaigns and refusal to listen to the people they are supposed to represent.

We ask for you to spread the word to your family and friends to vote for us. A substantial amount of money will be spent to keep us from taking away their power over local republican politics. We can not win without your help in spreading the word and as you can see, this is a fight we must win above all else.

We sincerely hope that we can count on your vote. Thank you.
