Filed for personal bankruptcy. Wired almost half a million dollars of library money to a Texas boot company that then filed bankruptcy. Mailed out tax bills late TWICE this year, costing school districts tens of thousands of dollars. Is running TV ads using OUR tax money to promote his name during the campaign season. SPENT OVER $50,000 OF OUR TAX DOLLARS to fly to HAWAII, NEW ORLEANS, MONTANA, NEW MEXICO AND MORE. You've got to be kidding me. Say bye-bye Burke.

So the commissioners caught Medina County Treasurer John Burke using a county vehicle 12 times for personal use and.......they did nothing?!!!! Who sees something wrong with this?! That's what happens when you get one party with complete power. Throw Burke and Geissman out!

How could anyone vote for Medina County Treasurer John Burke?!!! Is Medina County insane? Does the scandal in Cuyahoga County not mean anything to anyone?

Has anyone done the calculations on treasurer Burke's numbers in his literature? It appears he's bragging about getting a return on our county's money of about 2.5% over the past 10 years. That is amazing! That's like investing $100 for a year and getting $2.50 back. He should not only not be re-elected - he should be impeached!

This is the one republican on the ballot I won't vote for. He gives all our candidates a bad name.

Be very careful of Medina County Treasurer John Burke. Those who are aware of his past would certainly avoid dealing with him on financial issues.

Mike Todd has really done a wonderful job for the township during his time there - and he took over a difficult situation. I don't know much about Burke, although a lot more after reading this! But Mike Todd would make an excellent Medina County Treasurer!

Not surprisingly, Burke's staff has been illegally electioneering at the Fairgrounds. They've put their signs up in the parking lot area, and when their seen by the staff, they drive away, only to come back later. Typical lawbreaking from the Treasurer's Office.

You obviously don't know John and believe all the crap you see in the Gazette. I'll bet you are an Obama voter. Open your mouth and take the pablum. You would have been a Jim Jones follower that drank the kool-aid also!
Think for yourself. You might find it enlightening.

Throw Hambley and Ray out!!!! They screw us everytime with their analysis and the people they hire.
How about our Auditor and his nice increase in property taxes and the excuse that the economy was so great. HAHAHAHAHAHA
Lets pay more for the schools, they already started two in Medina City with no funds.
Lets build that courthouse, hire out of state workers and create NO JOBS at least that aren't family.
Medina County needs rehabed!

Burke could always take FULL RESPONSIBLITY and say he's sorry like Obamas picks who didn't pay their taxes. Then it would be okay.

No, I don't think John even apologized when he was convicted for cheating on his taxes...

Should we not have seen this in the paper or something. I did not know about it and now regret I ever voted for him. I did notice he is one of these people who wants to use his military service as an advertisement.

This auditor always seems to scold people on their opinions in the Gazette or the Post if they have points other than his.
