.....without Barack Obama, this levy fails. Look at the voter turnout in places like Akron's Ward 3-D........voter turnout was 198%!!!
139 registered voters, 276 ballots cast), with Obama getting 2.7 votes to every vote Hillary got.
It would appear a lot of people turned out to vote for Barack that are new voters and those same folks decided to be party to a wealth redistribution scheme while they were voting for their jug eared friend.
That's similar to what happened in the 2004 presidential election in Ohio. The issue about same sex marriage that was put on the ballot got the conservatives and religious fanatics out in large numbers which helped Bush win Ohio.

Please do not send buses to Chapil Hill. We already lost Rolling Acres because of bused in Gang Bangers.
Akron does not have the leadership to make the city safe.
Isn't that right Marco and Mayor don. How do you get a job as a leader and don't lead?
Uh...hello? Have you been to Chapel Hill lately??? I refuse to go on the weekends cuz it's wall to wall kids. It's also already one of the worst malls as far as crime is concerned in Northeastern Ohio.

Well thanks voters for approving another tax!!! Not like we do not have enough money going out. Our illustious mayor Don was spending our tax dollars getiing boozed up at Bricco last night.
You are being ridiculous. First of all, the mayor gets a paycheck just like all people who have jobs. AND like all of us, he can take his earned money and spend it anyway he sees fit. Obviously you too were at Bricco last night spending your money so don't worry about him spending his!

Lisa Bostwick does not endorse Russ Pry out of principle. She is a opportunist. Why elso would she have supported Finley for mayor and not for SCE. Pry is one of the few local politicians that she hasnt managed to alienate - yet. She is going in for the kill; interested only in what she thinks he can do for her. Pry will soon find out about her history and hypocrisy and wont have anything to do with her.
Yep, and I will bet my left nut that Big Lebowski is not Lisa Bostwick. First, I have seen him criticize her several times as being an opportunist. I think the last time I remember him tearing into her was in the METRO thread. Second, there is no way that Bostwick is for concealed carry. She is way too liberal for that.

The Akron Police then will tell thier familys to go somewhere else to shop just like they did when Rolling Acres was bad. Then Akron loses the only mull it has left. Because the word gets around

<quoted text>We have section 8 on Thomas Road and Tallmadge police spend 50% of their time on Thomas road. It's also 85% black there. Does that tell you something?
You people are in denial. He is not racist he is real. What we need are strong black leaders willing to take time with the black youth to encourage them that they CAN get an education and be smart,strong, moral citizens, and DONT have to be thugs. Its their worthless parents who are raising them to be thugs. Where are you, strong black leaders, tough black moms & dads who are willing to volunteer your time to be examples for these kids? Im not one to quote someone like Hillary, but sometimes it does take a village, you know.
