How many times does this jerk need to lose an election before he gets the mesage that no body want him. And this is the best competition we got against current regime? Can't even keep a simple business going

Jerk? I'm a jerk? Running for office should be a privilege and an honor. Plus it also requires a petition to be circulated and signatures garnered. I did not circulate any petitions despite individuals in the village asking me to run. You would know that if you read the paper. Guess that is asking a lot for you to be informed.
If voters elect to write me in for election then it shows the confidence they have in my ability to do the job. I guess they must feel that way because they know that I go to the meetings, understand the problems and can come up with solutions to the many problems facing us. By the way, I elected to sell or lease my business because my cancer treatments were becoming too harsh for me to dedicate the time necessary to be a success. I made money on that business from the third month of being open until the day I closed. Fortunately now my treatments are becoming old hat and I can do what I want, when I want. Guess you theory of my not being able to keep a simple business going is full of crap. And by the way, I own the building and all equipment of that operating store...and it is all paid for.
And for you Down the tubes...what have you ever accomplished in your life besides getting on your mother's computer in the basement and talk anonymous crap? Why not reveal yourself...Town of Ridgeway board meeting tomorrow night...why not come up and introduce yourself to me. Jerk.

Don't belittle me like you do everyone else. That's why you lose election after election. Where are the GOOD candidates that can kick these inviciles running the show out of office?? And actually do it legal rather than some halfassed write in. Lame. And sure, like you haven't posted anonymous on here before. You know all the screen names you have.

You are obviously clueless and a friend of Andrew's puppets. Maybe is this past board member SS? Kind of odd that the area you are writing this from isn't local to the Medina Area, or you're a smart a$$ COLLEGE student with nothing to do.

To the doubters and the Haters, Owen Toale is a good person, fine gentleman, and a guy I call friend! To insinuate anything else is a direct distortion of the truth. Owen would make a GREAT Trustee if he was elected and chooses to serve again. He makes decisions based on facts and truth, something that has been missing in this village board for a while.

Define "GOOD", and while you're at it define "inviciles". Did you mean imbeciles? Any suggestions other than insults?

It's easier to judge a voice than it is to use one.

MR. Toale, from a citizen of the Village of Medina, thank you for taking the time to ask the questions, and for having the courage to get involved. Right or wrong no one else is getting involved, no one else is asking the questions that need to be asked, our comunity our freedoms and our nation are withering away and we Americans are contemp to just let it happen. Here is a thought, once it's gone you will never be able to get back, should we allow it to get away without at least asking, is it the right thing to do.

Anyone who runs is doing more than the complainers who do nothing and lack the courage. This is why we have such bad government in this county no one steps up.

How is Owen an idiot, he got 61 votes without running. The man that should be embarassed is Andy and Mark I. They think it was a stamp of approval on an uncontested race????? Get real!!

I love Mark's quotes in the Journal. He was "humbled by the community support". Really? The voter turnout was pathetic because no one cares. People are either moving away or just couldn't care less. Glad your "humbled". Unreal

Are some of you having problems with someone running for or being written into a ballot? Seriously? Some of you do nothing but complain about the current administration but yet when anyone else either tries to run or is recommended by the people to run, you make fun of them?

The current administration is complacent and count on the fact that opposition is likely to be non-existent, unwilling, or unable to compete. That's never good.

We, The People, need to remember that if we want change, it takes work and not just posting in a forum. Elections are won and lost on the streets, door to door, one house and one business at a time. We simply haven't had any candidates hungry enough to make an effort.

When we see a candidate knocking on doors all over town, holding town-hall meetings and forums, talking policy on local newspapers, and showing some hunger, that's when we will actually have a real election in our great village/town.
