A State Representative from Westerville Ohio with no ties to Pickaway County has endorsed William J Lawless For Pickaway County Sheriff. Nothing is said in her glowing endorsement about Lawless being a client of her lawyer husband and that her family has profited by their relationship with Lawless.
Tainted her endorsement to say the least and in fact wiped it out as having any value at all. Claims Lawless to be a "friend" but when MONEY is paid that negates that too.

What does Ann Gonzales have to do with Jason Lawless ? NOTHING he was a paying client of her rich lawyer husband.
That endorsement is a fraud.
Ohio House should investigate this and sanction her.

I can't believe people would rather leave a Radcliff in charge! You people have no idea how many deaths, murders he has covered up so he can protect his image!! If it were your family member swept under the rug you would look at things a lot different! Wake up pickaway county!! We need a change!!

Only MURDERS you think may have been swept under any rug were of dopers and thieves that their family didn't accept the manner of death.
Every MURDER or Suspicious Death from Pickaway County has been handled by Coroner in Franklin or Montgomery County under order of Pickaway County's
Sheriff or Police Chief NEVER has final say in cause of death and can't rule it a homicide.
Try understanding ORC before inserting foot in mouth.
PLUS ORC mandates Sheriff staff jail and courts says he MAY provide patrol etc. County is not obligated to provide police services to any town or village once they incorporate. They must pay their own police or contract with a law enforcment agency.
To load up dark county roads late at night with lots of deputies is wasteful spending.
Many a night in most Ohio counties there are only 2 to 3 deputies on patrol. IT COSTS TOO MUCH.
At times even Franklin County used to have only 10 deputies out and that included those contracted to villages & townships. 70% of Sheriff's budget goes to jail and courts.

I said nothing of how many deputies are out and my foot is not in my mouth. I know for a fact of a death that was never investigated and that person most certainly had family members that cared for her. And what about the father that was arrested for trying to get to his son who had been in a car accident? These families were treated terribly by the sheriff and investigators. All we ever wanted was some compassion as a human being or a phone call back w some kind of answer. All we received were rude actions on there part. Swept under the rug w out even so much as a returned phone call!

I am a supporter of Lawless, but in defense on your car accident as working in the EMS business there are reasons we keep family members back as hard as it may be. We have a job to do and often is complicated by family members who I understand wants to see their child or wife etc. We once had a mother who wanted to see her daughter her was complaining of neck pain and the mother grabs her daughter and raises her off the backboard for a hug. We couldn't get the mother away until the officer got pulled her away.

But Vote Lawless for real change.

That father was out of control. He was upset yes but was making the situation very difficult and could have caused his son a worse fate. There was absolutly no excuse for how that man acted. I was in a very serious car accident. I had to be life flighted. And I remember looking over at my mother. I know she wanted to come over and grab me. But she handled it very well and let the ems do their job. Trust me it feels like an eternity when you are stuck in a car and your legs are crushed by metal. I was glad my mom stayed out of the way.

If you create a issue at the scene of an emergency and slow down EMS from helping an injured person you will be restrained by any agency.
That father could have caused even more delays in getting mediacl help during the olden hour needed to save a life on the line.
Deputy was correct in his actions and it is Misconduct At An Emergency because you could cost someone their life.
Hospitals have people thrown out of ER's in Columbus everyday.
I am feeling supporters of Lawless are misinformed and have little clue about what a Sheriff can and cannot do. Where is he going to get $$$$ money for more patrols ? The County does not have it and Kasich won't help and Federal Grants are dried up

All this proves is candidates and those that endorse them are corrupt to the core.
Who needs another politician's endoresment anyway.
They would sell their soul.
Gonzales admitted to a finanacial connection to Lawless so her word is worthless On all issues after that was done

So Lawless PAYS a lawyer
So The Lawyer's wife is a State Representative
So That wife ENDOSRES Lawless
So That wife does NOT represent Pickaway County.

I understand
It's Corrupt and WRONG no matter how you look at it

Also noticed Lawless and his Wife are very quiet about this topic sounds like THEY KNOW the TRUTH is coming out.

IT GETS WORSE
Now Anne Gonzales hubby John Gonzales is representing Lawless in his Westfall Aggregates case.
More money for the Gonzales family so maybe she'll sell her political soul to do something else besides just endorse this turd.

Ann Gonzales was NOT endorsed by Fraternal Order of Police due to her undying support of Governor Kasich and his efforts to destroy unions that deputies and police and fire belong to.
She supports Lawless and both are regsitered Republicans so you can bet Lawless does not have best interest of deputies at heart.
He won't win ... Loses by 93% at least.
