Someone should ask Gary Rider what relation Tom Striewe was to the late harrison Township Trustee Nick Peters? You know the same striewe Gary Rider gave home detention on his fourth conviction for beating Beverly Weir Striwe went to Weirs Apartment and Killed her and theyre baby with a rifle good work gary we need you for prosecutor I think Not . I wonder if he will admit that as a Judge he let politics influence Nick Peters connection!

The Bullies are back in Town....

Wow it never ceases to amaze me the extent that people go to. This just in from people I have talked to. Especially in West Terre Haute. Joe Eitling, Gary Rider's wife, and company are actually calling people that have Terry Modesitt's signs in their yard and trying to strong arm them into removing them. I have personally talked to the people that have been called and harassed. Its sad that these people try and bully folks for their votes. This is not the only occasion this has happened either. Talk to the Democrat Precinct committee people. They were threatened that they cannot support anyone but democrats or risk losing their position.

Its sad to me that people number one bully people for their votes and 2. that many people do not look at the candidate individually, but rather what the name is in front being Democrat or Republican or Independent. This Office isn't even one that makes legislative decisions, so I think it should be non-partisan, but that's another discussion.

The most important characteristic for this office must be integrity. It is to easy to fall victim to underhandedness in that office. Gary has already proven he is susceptible to political bargaining. Vote for the candidate not a party.

Additionally, I have heard that Gary Rider is offering a job for support/vote program . You support me (Gary Rider) and I will make sure you have a job in my office.

Looks like "the boys(bullies) are back in town." Underhanded play even before you take office Gary. Classy as usual. Once again people I have personally talked to have verified this.

Does it really matter? there is always going to be corruption in that office. How about all the dead beat dads that never pay? Guess it is OK if you coach there kids or referee! Someone said that Bob Wright never tried a case? How about Jay vermilion? Terry modisitt what happen to Jack Berry case?It will never change. I don't drink but it is all who you know. I can tell you 10 people under wright who had smock & etling that waited for a judge pro- tem to be on the bench so the DUI was drop to reckless driving couple of them it was there 3rd time cost them 4-5K but was drop.I know for a fact because 1 of them was my brother-in-law How about the judges son from Sullivan was arrested this year in vigo county for DUI and has never been to sentenced he was also arrested in brown county earlier this years for the same thing Why has nothing been done here about it? IT IS JUST WHO YOU KNOW.I will never vote again.IF THEY ARE NOT CROOKS WHEN THEY GO IN THEY ARE WHEN THEY COME OUT!!!

I have met Mr. Rider several times and thought that he was a good man. After hearing the campaign ad of Martin Plasick I dont believe that this is Mr. Riders personality attacking Terry Modesitt in this manor.
Sorry Mr. Rider, I will not, vote for a puppet to head the office of prosecuter.

so i have heard this guy's son was arrested years back when Rider was a judge, and he ordered the release of him from jail. he was later repremanded for his actions.
also hear that when he was a judge he released a man from jail for domestic abuse and the man went and shot and killed his girlfriend and small child shortly after his release. does anyone know if this is true? not sure if this is a man i want as our prosecutor. not to mention the fact that i am told he is in Bob Wrights pocket.
its all true and no we dont want this guy in office

Really? How is he a good person? All he has done in his entire campaign is try to belittle the current prosecutor's office and any of their supporters. I have yet to hear one radio commercial or see one ad or flier where he talked about his accomplishments, plans, or credentials. All he does is state that he will be full time. Try standing up on your own merit Gary or do you need to bring your opponent down to your level because it would be too hard for you to climb up to his.

If you vote Rider, you are voting to bring back the good ol'boy, it's not what you did, it's who you know system. I am personally proud of our prosecutor for not responding to Rider, and choosing not to drag any skeletons out of his closet. Terry has choosen to explain his own actions and his own accomplishments instead of trying to attack you.

I am voting for Terry because I am tired of the Terre Haute Democratic Way.

Terry has chosen to explain his own actions and accomplishments???? What the hell has he done besides make sure that no DUIs are bargained down to reckless driving? Oh, except for just a couple cases for people he knew. He hasn't done squat!!!

What cases are those? Lets here some specifics...
To many people just spout off at the mouth but dont have the facts to back em up. The trouble with what people are saying about Modesitt is they lack facts to back them up. Did you get that information from his son that he let outa jail?

I will be expecting the next editorial in the newspaper. Prolly from his son. Maybe it will be titled "Daddy's Got My Back"

U think Rider will do something in there? Something other than court the likes of Eitling and Wrights interests? Doubtful.

Those who know Gary know that he was going to retire to Florida until the Big Political Machine gave him a call.

Well after the voters determine they dont want this would-be addition to the Political Machine at least he will get to bath in the sun down in Florida.

So Mr. Rider I wish you safe travels. Hope your travels are better than your arrival.

Police, Fire, and even the TRIBUNE STAR endorse Modesitt. Who woulda thunk it?

politics at it's finest in Terre Haute, as rumor has it that Riders son, who delivers pizza for a local pizza resaruant, is writting on the pizza boxes "vote Rider for Prosecutor" not sure but would this be the son who Rider ordered out of jail when he was arrested for possessing drugs when Rider was a local Judge or is this another son? not sure, but i bet the pizza place would be happy to know what the boy is doing. I also hear Etling is calling people he knows who has Modesitt signs, threatening them to take the signs down. WOW, thats the kind of people we want running the prosecutors office. oh, hey Gary remember the strewie family? yeah the guy you let out of jail, then he goes and kills his wife and young child. real nice Gary. Rider for Prosecutor? lets pray that doesn't happen, or its back to the Bob Wright era.

Heard that Papa Johns HQ received several complaints and are sending someone from corporate to investigate. Wonder if Rider will be able to get his boy out of this one. Anyone else seeing a pattern here????
