Mentor Mayor Ray Kirchner recently attacked council candidate Ronald Micchia in the October Mentor Monitor. His remarks were totally unprofessional and uncalled for. He is trying to sway the outcome of the election by using dirty politics. Shame on Kirchner.

I was very disappointed by those comments as well. It just goes to show, if someone doesn't have any assets to present, they will try to make their opponent look bad in an attempt to distract the voters to get what they want. While I know Kirchner is not up for re-election at this time, I think changing his co-council can make a positive difference in the way the residents of Mentor are supported. I hope Micchia wins. We need some new people, with integrity, willing to do what is best for the citizens of Mentor, even if that means stepping out of the box a little. Kirchner has shown his true colors. For someone who is supposed to be a leader in our community he has proven he is not worthy. When the time comes, let's get rid of him. For the time being, let's get rid of the people who have the same mindset that he has!

News Herald article today, page 4, states that the Ohio Election Commission agreed with Kirchner. His complaints are valid. More to come.

Kirchner could have endorsed Dowling without slinging mud at Micchia. Mentors mayor used bad judgement. He is not up for election yet he attempted to sway voters. Voters should be questioning why.

It is a real shame Kirchner is playing dirty. This shows the voters his agenda about changing our city's form of government. I actually saw him standing at the polls this morning with a Dowling sign. He should be ashamed of himself

Now maybe we will have a council that might actually debate issues instead of being a rubber stamp for developers and sychophants for Osborne.

If only those two toadies Marn and Kirchner were up for election...

How soon do you think we will get FREE recycling? If they get it passed at the first meeting where they all are, do you think we could have it by January 15?

Couldn't have said it any better Michael!

I heard Marn has filed to run for Lake County Commissioner.

It is too bad Kirchner's pick Janet Dowling did not win.We could have been on a roll. Carolyn Bussey lost too. She was an against our Newell Creek project. Building with Petros Homes seems like a good value. The builder threw in a ton of extras. I think we are going to like it here.Micchia and Walsh need to see things from the developers point of view. I mean how much green space does Mentor really need? I will have to Las Vegas again to do more in depth research on community planning.

With the face of the new city council in Mentor we should be able to keep the airport from expanding. Does anyone know the county's time frame? As long as the city can keep anything from happening in the next 2 months, when the new council gets in they can do their thing and stop it once and for all! No airport in Mentor!

Hey Scott...Bucey won by a landslide. 65% of the vote.

Linda....The airport deal is dependent on the FAA reauthorization. It passed the house and is now in the Senate. I too hope nothing happens until the new council is sworn in. Keep in mind there will be public hearings before it becomes a done deal. If you would like to sign a petition opposing a county airport go to:

www.lostnationairport.net

Direct neighbors, friends and family to sign also. We can stop the purchase if we pull together!!!

Well it looks like maybe the tide is turning against his ilk. We'll see how well his pedantic arrogance plays with bigger boys.

The Busey crew had the right approach - when Snow tried his last minute dirty trick (really I should say his handlers - I can't see the guy having the gray matter to pull this stunt off on his own) they hit back quick.

We can't give them an inch. If we're not diligent they'll turn this town into half vacant strip malls, gas well fields and salt box condos -(except the gated corner where they'll be holed up.)

he sent out a last minute first class mailing making out of context and unfounded acusations re: Busey and a court settlement sorounding the Newell Creek court case.

funny thing is - that settlement was supposed to be sealed - so where did he get the info that he skewed? when this got out - I think it pretty much sunk him

People are tired of that kind of garbage. Snow deserved to loose.

Why was it supposed to be sealed? If there was nothing to hide and she was just recovering some of their losses, why seal it?

That seems kind of silly to seal something that really wasn't anything big.

If I am not mistaken Micchia put out campaign literature that was misleading because he used the term "re-elect" as if he was a current member of council.
