Anthony Fossaceca for Ohio House District 17

Nov. 6 is a very important election for many reasons, however I would like to take this opportunity to explain one of the most important votes we cast is the one for our State of Ohio Representative.

Before you vote, please take into consideration that the incumbent voted on bills that effectively increased our local taxes. For example her “yes” vote to reduce school funding 20 percent across the board stuck local taxpayers with the bill when in the March 2012 election we had to vote an increase in our school taxes.

Another example is her “yes” vote on the budget bill that reduced the Local Government Fund for every community in Ohio. The direct result of that vote in Chagrin Falls is that Village Council is asking voters for more taxes on Nov. 6 so among other things they can fill potholes in the roads.

So you see, it very much matters who our representative is in the Statehouse, and it is a clear example of why all politics are local. The votes of the incumbent have directly affected all taxpayer’s in the district, and not for the better. It is very disheartening to have a state representative vote against the best interests of the people she directly represents.

Her voting record along party lines indicates that she is a mostly a cookie-cutter representative who seems more comfortable shaking hands and handing out award certificates than she is in fighting for her district. I believe that these issues make a strong case for her to not be re-elected.

Early by-mail voting is underway and begins in earnest Oct. 1. Whether you vote by mail or at the polls, please look down the ballot and watch for the name Anthony Fossaceca.

Foss will bring a fresh, thoughtful and informed voice to the Statehouse. As a small business owner and dad, Foss is highly focused on small business and education. He offers an in-depth storehouse of creative and common sense approaches to many issues. His handshake is firm and with a strong work ethic in place is well prepared to be an outstanding state representative for our district.

Our district deserves better and deserves to have Anthony Fossaceca represent us in Columbus. Please vote for Foss Nov. 6!
