Hopefully union members vote the best candidate. It's sad most of them do no research and just vote they way the union tells them to.

WeThePeople1965

Exactly. It seems like people vote based on what party they think they are. It's not a football team, it's your government.

MrSandusky

I wonder if FitzGerald said anything about his campaign staff quitting on him? Kind of hard to campaign for this guy if you want to be taken seriously.

Hopefully right wingers vote for the best candidate, not just the one with a "R" next to his name.

How did he get there with no drivers license, did his mommy drive him?

YoMamma

He is a Democratic... He used public transportation!

What parking lot is reserved for 4:30AM and who has the GPS that needs his help?

Which has hurt Ohio more? Fitzgerald, by not having a driver's license? Or Kasich, who STILL is a job killer for Ohio?

In July, Ohio lost 3900 manufacturing jobs, 12,400 other Ohioans lost jobs, and 6000 other long-term unemployed Ohioans stopped looking for work. Our labor rate is now below the national average, and thanks to Kasich, Ohio continues to go in the opposite direction of the rest of the country.

It's time for a change. Governors and diapers should be changed often, and for the same reason.

I agree - What is worse? Here are a few things worse

- The loss of funding to public schools in favor of charter schools.

- The loss of funding to local governments by using local government funds to balance the State's budget.

- The attempt to limit our right to work and to bargain for a fair wage (SB5)

- The violation of our civil rights whether by limiting the access to voting, women's rights, minority rights, etc.

All things enacted or attempted to be enacted from day one by Governor Kasich.

What's worse, the largest deficient in Ohio history from one term Teddy Strickland or the surplus of today with a lower income tax rate for the workers of Ohio. Local officals want increased home rule except when it come to handouts from the state and federal goverment to allow them to overspend, where do they think that comes from, answer the hard working taxpayers. Lose of voters rights, give one example, one month prior and easy mail voting are offered, other than the democrapper motto of vote early and often give an example. Always love dems who call for "choice" for women but fight against choice for parents to pick the best schools. The lose of SB5 that allows the public employees higher wages and better benefits that the working taxpayers who fund them. a similar law is working in Wisconsin. Funny how only the public sector unions are still maintaing members.

Good lord, if Fitzgerald had the kind of showing kassick's had, the right wingnuts would be calling for his head. As long as he a "R" behind his name he can do no wrong. I could even see you right wingers voting for an Independent. johnny boy is just bad news.

The New World Czar

Uh, duh...didn't Strickland try to use stimulus money to balance the budget?

The goal of the public school system is to educate students and not finance teachers unions.

Might want to check your facts,

So now you want to talk about the labor participation rate? LMAO. OK, it is at an all time low nationally. Since it's now Kasich fault in Ohio, I guess you can now admit that it is Obama's fault nationally. Oh, and you can't blame it on Bush unless you apply the same logic to Ohio, then it would have to be Strickland's fault. Good day.

Licorice Schtick

Kasich get little or the credit or the blame. The same for Obama. But Kasich is in fact anti-union, anti-worker in belief and action.

Who drove him?

Why even waste the gas money? You spoke to a captive audience of what 30? BFD!

Would have gone if there had been some sort of notice in the Register...

I was going to after hearing about it earlier from a member, but didn't know tickets were pre-purchase only. So I'm glad I checked their website to make sure before I headed out there else I would have been turned away. I suppose there's always next time.

Diane Schaefer

The pre-sale of tickets was for the dinner only. I don't think you would have been turned away to hear FitzGerald speak.

Ah, boo. Well I missed out then. Thanks for the heads-up anyway!

Your Prius would have been towed from the parking lot anyway.

That would have been unfortunate. Why do you suspect that would happen?

Pterocarya frax...

Look at the sign at the entrance of the parking lot.

All it says is that there are KBI meetings on the 19th and there's a red Rolls in the parking lot as of this reply. What did the sign say?

just observing

State party is pulling funds from him and diverting it to other statewide candidates as the fear of him pulling the slate down with him, thanks to Chris Redfern for this candidate.

GreenEyez

There was a notice posted in the Register from the Erie County Democratic Women's Group.

knowitall

Why always speak at a union hall? Why not at a Rotary or Kiwanis meeting, at the gazebo, a local school auditorium? It doesn't matter which candidate.

Larry

Nothing but EMPTY PROMISES !

just observing

Did Murray drive his non union 1% vehicle?

knowitall

Wasn't that the other Murray?

MrSandusky

The Register should warn us before this creep comes to town again. That way we can warn all the women to stay away from the parking lots.

MrSandusky

Kind of funny how I did not see anything on the SR site about Kasich speaking to a packed KofC here last week. I was really shocked by the crowd he drew, especially in this area.

knowitall

Kentucky Fried Chicken? KfC

Larry

If Fitzgerald didn't have a drivers license for ten years, should we assume that he was driving without insurance as well ?

The Big Dog's back

kassick has a commercial out that plays to women's nurturing and caring by using his parents that were killed in a car crash. Sorry johnny, but women are smarter than that by asking what have you done to improve things for their children.

wasthere

Women are smarter than that? They voted for Obama you idiot. How's that working out for them (or all of us). It takes a low life coconut head like you to mention his parents being killed. You forgot to mention they were killed by a drunk driver. Oh, that's right, according to you and your rear jam buddy coaster, it's ok to break the law. If you are a lib.

The Big Dog's back

What does his parents being killed in a car crash have to do with him being Gov?

wasthere

Your hero coasterfan brought it up fool. It has nothing to do with him running for governor, and that was my point. Do you ever read these posts or just blow the pie hole open? You prove every day what an idiot you are.

The Big Dog's back

Hate women much not there.

wasthere

The only women I hate would be your mother for honoring us with your presence.

BREAKING NEWS

Like rats jumping from a sinking ship, Ed's top two aides have just left his campaign staff!

I'm guessing there is another story ready to break, and they want no part of it.

Babo

Rumors have been flying in Cuyahoga County that Fitz gave the Clerk of Court office (appointed in Cuyahoga not elected like most counties) to another female "friend" who also happened to be the Westlake City law director at the time of his 4:30AM parking lot escapade wherein Westlake police ignored that EF had no driver's license.

DickTracey

Bingo!

The Big Dog's back

Rumors got you into trouble didn't they?

Babo

No.

Ralph J.

Big Dog supported all of the corruption in Cuyahoga County. Not a bad word at all from Big Dog née Brutus Smith when all of that crap was going on. Big Dog gives honest Democrats and liberals a bad name.

wasthere

Coasterfan didn't mention the part about Fitzgerald being with a married woman at four in the morning. Maybe Fitzgerald isn't afraid of a "Bush" like coaster. It seems he can's put together a sentence without using the word.

knowitall

Jumping to conclusions are ya? They were on government business. Government is a 24 hour job. I commend Fitz for working long hard hours. :-)

wasthere

Yeah, and hard drives disappear. Join the stupid club.

Ralph J.

Pay no attention to ultra troll Big Dog. Blah blah blah right wingnut blah blah blah. You have the far left liberals and far right conservatives. Big Dog would have to fit into the very far far left all of the way to infinity. Not only does Big Dog give honest liberals a bad name but also to dogs in general. Big Dog made many people so mad that they voted R just to get back at Big Dog and his rants.

Word now is that Ohio Dems are now "spreading their resources" in order to try and avoid another sweep this November:

GreenEyez

The reason in which he spoke at a Union Hall is due to The Erie County Democratic Women's Group renting that hall for him to come there.
