E-mail to Commissioner Dennis Miller Jr.

Dear Commissioner Dennis Miller:

I am sorry that we have never had the opportunity to meet, but I wanted to take a moment to urge you to very carefully read the above captioned report. I hope you take the time to do that and question if this was indeed a fair and impartial investigation of the facts, or whether it followed the dictates of an agenda.

I also wanted to mention to you that I met a man at the city commission meeting on Thursday who shared with me his thoughts about this issue and others. He also mentioned he's lived in his home in the 1500 block of Shelby Street for 67 years and said there are eight vacant houses surrounding his home. I drove to his neighborhood earlier today, and sadly, it appears the information he gave me is exactly correct.

I wonder if the more than $40,000 spent so far on the Murman investigation and related expenses would have been better spent to protect our neighborhoods and secure our city's future.

Please feel free to call me anytime. There are a great many other concerns I have regarding this issue, and it would be nice to meet and talk with you about them. Thank you for taking the time to consider my request.

Sincerely,

Matt Westhover

Considering how often Baxter and his gob network have used the same unlawful strategy of FIXING CASES---the retired judge bit, the Cuyahoga County judge bit, the Cuyahoga County attorneys bit---one would think they would have at least changed the strategy by now. They either keep it cause it WORKS so good or else they think that people are so stupid they can't see right thru it!

Thank you so much for that information. My Mother won't attend another meeting with this lawyer un-attended, as I will see to that personally, as well, I will let him know that we're now aware of the illegalities of such actions, and yes, that is right here in good ole Sandusky-Erie County.

To paraphrase Biden, if elected, O's hubris, sophistry and inexperience will eventually result in plummeting poll numbers and the potential for disaster for our nation’s survival.

Election Day is fast approaching, with our country facing real catastrophe. If we don't wake up to the fact that at least 7 people are running for president and we don't have to waste our votes on McCain or Obama, our country may never recover.

The facts are undeniable: the Democrats and Republicans are working together to enrich billionaire owners of corporations as if they were bandits, while blaming their destructive activity on alleged "failures" of free enterprise when it is their anti-market behavior at fault. It's a gigantic scam.

A vote for Obama or McCain means aiding and abetting our slide into the New World Order's global corporatism. Left unchecked, the Republicans and Democrats will crush the economy and the spirit of working Americans. But even more troubling is the fact that all the other people running for president are being shut out by a corporatized media beholden to five billionaire power brokers.

We saw what the media did to Congressman Ron Paul in his campaign againt McCain for the Republican nomination. We saw how a true conservative who fearlessly spoke the truth about President Bush's wars and our economy was ridiculed, ignored and censored. But now everything Ron Paul warned about is happening.

Ron Paul is no longer a candidate after he and his supporters were shut out of the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. So Ron Paul has endorsed Chuck Baldwin for President.

Chuck Baldwin is the only person among the 7 candidates who understands and will speak the truth. www.Baldwin08.com

What a joke. They won't allow a town hall meeting. I'm going down to Baxter's myself and I hope he doesn't hide.

Although Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin, he did invite Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader to the historic September 10 conference and has made favorable commments about the Libertarian candidate for president. Barr had a 74% rating on what is now the John Birch Society's Freedom Index. He has admitted his mistakes and I believe that he has repented. Besides, if he gets five percent of the vote in Ohio, we don't have to petition for ballot access in 2010.
If you don't want to support him, that is your right but be objective and at least consider the possibility that he has changed.

Why would Barb agree to do this blog column, then not turn in a response to the weekly question?

This is exactly how she runs her office! She says that she will get records on line, then doesn't follow through it.

She says she will collect on the outstanding fines and court costs, then doesn't follow through it.

She says that she will get the old cases closed and microfilmed, then doesn't follow through with it.

She says that she will do a lot of things as Clerk, but she never follows through with anything.

This is why the citizens of Erie County need to vote Barb Johnson out of office and vote Steve Schaeffer into that office. He will follow through with things and get the job done! ! !

what is Nuesse's case actually about? Are the city officials trying to get her on criminal charges for the voided out $15.00 parking ticket or what? If so, wasn't the $15.00 parking ticket from years ago? What about the guy that voided out the ticket? Is he going to have a trial, too? Geez, this case will be up in the millions before it's done.

David Macko, who commented below, is, according to his website, a member of the Libertarian Party and candidate for Congress. Apparently he is no longer endorsed by the Libertarian Party who had initially endorsed him.

The Libertarian Party should do the same with Bob Barr, and why they haven't is not only curious but should be of major concern for liberty-loving Americans.

Nobody should vote for Bob Barr for one very important reason - if the Libertarians get 5% of the vote as they are hoping to do with Barr's help, then a dangerous precedent will be established and they will go after more CIA-trained pied pipers in the future to lull people into a stupor.

ANYbody sounds good preaching libertarianism, even H.Ross Perot did when he pinched Andre Marrou's speeches in 1992! But watch what they do, not what they say. Perot became the 9th wealthiest man in America by rubbing shoulders with Daddy Bush for 30 years and milking government contracts. Barr worked for Daddy Bush when Bush was Director of the CIA. High-level statists and their friends do not make for libertarians or libertarian candidates.

The Libertarian Party should be punished for not unendorsing Barr. They do not follow their own advice. That is why Ron Paul is endorsing Chuck Baldwin and not former CIA official Bob Barr. Chuck Baldwin was never a spy and speaks the truth. www.Baldwin08.com

I have read both of Obamas books and do not feel they exploit or promote racism. Why is it you want to criticize Obama but yet make excuses for McCain & Palin. A great man like Powell steps up (and that took a lot to do on his part) and right away you want to claim racism? He is so not like that. Palin still doesn't know what a VP does.. She Thinks she can do anything and is above the law. Her husband is a security threat(he wanted to not even be a part of the United States. She encites hate and wants to make laws to tell us all how we can live? McCain wants to ruin our social security and health insurance. How are retirees supposed to live? Do you honestly think McCain has good health? SOUND MIND? He is so erratic & loses his temper in a split second. He was a POW I respect that immensely but how does that give him presidential credentials? I truly feel our great country is in for rough times ahead NO matter who gets into office. We have a lot of countries who hate us already NOW, Hate Bush,& dont like McCain and who knows what will set them off. I would rather have a cool level headed man in charge surrounded by an experienced team of advisors. I don't see THE HOT HEAD McCain being able to be rational in a crisis or work well with others...

I would like to tell you about a problem I had but I'm really not sure if it was the Clerk of Court's fault or the Common Pleas Court.
At a hearing (that I was never notified of) property that I inherited was ordered to be sold at a Sheriff's Sale. (but not because of bank foreclosure) The Clerk of Court's, who I KNOW FOR A FACT had my correct address on file, sent the Judgment Entry to Sandusky, Ohio instead of my correct address. (this was per the instruction of the Common Pleas Court) I was later told that the Sandusky Post Office returned it the VERY NEXT DAY yet I did not receive it until 28 DAYS LATER! I then filed an Appeal over the Judgment Entry ( explaining the reason it was filed late) yet the Appeal was denied because it was past the 30 day time limit.
I then went to the Clerk of Court's office to get a copy of the envelope to PROVE it was sent to the wrong address but it was listed as "MISSING" in the files. I was told by an employee that the envelope was either (1) put into another file by mistake and would show up sooner or later or (2) somebody off the street might have come in and taken it out of the file. (??)
Could you offer your input on this?

Not the first time I've been called strange, won't be the last I'm sure! Just what is it you consider strange about me, that I'm willing to state my personal opinions here, or the fact that they evidently don't jive w/yours? Difference between you and I is that I figure when a blogger comes back calling names, verbally insulting, you know, "the pot calling the kettle black" thing, I don't consider it an attack. I figure it's a DEFENSE MECHANISM they're using, and it's there for a reason! Let's agree on one thing here, we just DISAGREE. I can do that with civility, can you? However, I would have to wonder why the necessity for you to play the "victim" roll here, always being attacked? If it bothers you so much, STAY AWAY!

Remember Judge Maschari? She was the judge that was hundreds and hundreds of cases behind in having hearings or writing final judgments. The voters had enough of her laziness and voted in Judge Tone. Judge Tone has been diligently cleaning up this backlog -thank God and Hallelujah. Guess who the Clerk of Courts was during Maschari’s terms in office? Yep, you guessed it, Barb Johnson. Hmmmmmmmmm.

Now I hear that Johnson, who has a total of 37 years experience as the Clerk of Courts and as a Deputy Clerk, is way, way behind in her duties in getting thousands of cases and documents coasted out, or scanned and closed so they can be sent to microfilming. Visitors researching records to do the business of their clients or themselves are having a devil of a time getting access to inactive case files. Hard copy records are all over the office, loose and boxed up. Many are in another storage building away from the Courthouse. What’s going on? They should have been microfilmed by now for easy access for the researchers.
One would think, with 37 years experience in the Clerk’s office that Johnson would have THE BEST operation of ALL the counties of Ohio-----NOT! She might be the current Clerk of Courts, pulling down good bucks but she really is retired or at least on extended vacation--has been for the last two terms—or so it seems, because record keeping is out of control and management and supervision are sadly inadequate. She’s a skater, padding her retirement and milking the system for all its’ worth.

You know, STEVE SCHAEFFER is a fool for running against her. He must be that or a glutton for punishment because if elected, he has BIG ,BIG problems in getting caught up. On top of that he is a fool because the County Commissioners have frozen all new hiring and because additional funding probably will not be available to help that office out of the hole. But you know, he has an optimistic view, loves challenges and has the necessary leadership and management skills to do a bang up job. He’ll bring it around.

Voters! Do your job like you did back in 2005 when Maschari was thrown out of office. Finish the job and vote out Johnson and place her in legal retirement-----vote for the fool SCHAEFFER who probably will turn it around and do a hell of a job as your next County Clerk of Courts in spite of all the roadblocks he faces. If he does not pan out, vote the fool out of office during the next General Election that’s the American way!

This entire issue is as a result of the current City Manager terminating Ms. Nuesse from her position as Chief. He based this action on complaints from her command staff, other city departments, members of other governmental agencies, as well as personel interaction in the workplace with Nuesse.
The complaints basically boiled down to an issue of honesty in what she said and did with her employees, budgets, department regulations, and with people in the city as well as in the community. To put it bluntly, the contention is she would say one thing and do another. As such, the City Manager felt he was unable to trust her or her judgment, and due to this, he terminated her. The issues discussed during the present Civial Service hearing (parking ticket, web page, agreements with Perkins Twp., the need for a new radio 'system...) are merely the city's examples of waht they fell showed her 'dishonesty', and why the termination was carried out. But the firing was not based on any one issue alone.
Nuesse's contention is that she was unjustly terminated (Good Old Boy syndrome, sexual bias, command staff out to get her,...) and due to this, she is appealing the termination through the local paper, organizations (ministerial), Civil Service, and eventually, the courts. And that, as we say, is the 'REST OF THE STORY'.

why is it that our goverment and our people continually feed into the notion that it is allright for there to be a two party race election after election. Its time to get real people and admit... THERE IS NO WINNING CANDIDATE this election. I hope that I am wrong , I am not a pessimistic person by nature, I always try and find good out of all situations but I have very bad feelings about this election and issues facing our country. I am not so young that I dont know that there are moments in elections when the truths are stretched, but all the out and out lying ( and I mean from both sides) just amazes me to the point where I did something that I never did before. I just quit watching. I know that a statement like that will be followed up by someone saying "Then you have no right to complain " which is somewhat true. So I have decided that I will concentrate on local issues. Please people .... Dont fall for all the hype that you hear about issue 6. Vote YES !!!! bottom line is 5000 jobs. They will lie about things such as millions will be taken from Ohio. WHO CARES ???? Millons are taken now to other states. There are loopholes !!!! Yeah right .... Do you think for one minute that the state wont get their tax money ???? They chase joe taxpayer across the great divide to get 50 bucks, so dont believe that. And lets not forget its a monopoly... The fact is if they nwant to have a casino say up in northern Ohio all they will have to do is the same thing the promoters of this issue did .... they will have to go out and collect their own signatures to have it put on the ballot. THINK PEOPLE!!!!!! 5000 jobs....Good paying jobs. Its a start of a good thing ... dont let them sway you with lies, you want lies keep watching the election. Thank you

You can forget about Mrs. Johnson answering your question or helping you. She doesn't care about your problem. She hasn't answered any of the other previous bloggers questions. Hell, she hasn't even answered the Register's weekly question. She just doesn't care.

So why is she even bothering to run again?

The answer to that question is that IF she wins, she gets $220,000 over the next 4 years(that's $55,000 a year) for doing NOTHING. Just like what she has done for the past 19 years....NOTHING! !

By the way, if you multiply $45,000 a year (that is the rough average over the past 19 years) by 19 years, you get $855,000 (that's close to 1 million dollars) that we the citizens of Erie County have been paying Barb over the past 19 years for doing.....NOTHING! ! !

Think about that. Do you want that practice to continue? That should make you mad as hell. If that does pi$$ you off, then do NOT vote for Johnson on November 4! Vote for Steve Schaeffer who will bring about MUCH and way-overdo change to the Clerk's Office! !

Dear all,

I would like to inform, that I have taken the liberty today to reach out to CNN News and other news media agencies sending all of your comments and concerns regarding the corruption we are faced with in Erie County.

I've also expressed from your view points and of course mine, the continued abuse of power involving the prosecutorial misconduct of Kevin Baxter.

You see, I don't find this blog, to be entertaining, I find this blog too be heart wrenching and a City that's in despair. It reminds me of what we are presently faced with on Wall-Street, losing, losing , losing.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of losing. I feel as tax payers we owe it to ourselves to know that we matter. As we are faced with overwhelming challenges of the struggle's of this disastrous economy I feel none of us should be entrenched in a system of corruption that imprisons innocent people as we battle in political war.

I dont know about you but I want Kevin Baxter to feel our wrath and understand that we divide to conquer. We can not continue to sit back and spend our time fighting each other, and stopping at this point- THE SANDUSKY REGISTER. It's obvious we share the same common interest and thats seeking justice against a man who has destroyed famlies & hurt children . This is a man who isn't fit to practice law,let alone have people's lives in his hands. I say enough is enough.

I openly pour out my heart to you and challenge you to get on board and send your complaints behind mine and express the truth of what we seek, the removal of Kevin Baxter and much deserving investigation in Sandusky, Ohio.

We all have a story , please let it be known. My prayers, go out to all of Kevin's victims and I pray that he will face each and everyone of his adversaries.

Please send your comments to this link
http://www.cnn.com/feedback/form...

There are a total of 638 comments regarding the corruption in Erie County and Kevin Baxter named as the culprit please trust that this warrants attention.

I've also sent newspaper articles and various cases naming each of his victims who have suffered under his abuse. I believe that if we continue to nationally expose Sandusky, Ohio and put the pressure on the Ohio Supreme Court at a National Level they will have no other choice but to hand him over.

It's unfortunate that each year we continue to get rejected with our pleas of wanting him removed from our State officials, and to receive that famous letter stamped -Kevin has done nothing wrong - go away. This makes you fight more and more each and everyday.

It's amazing to know that there are so many of us waiting in line to bring forth justice against Kevin Baxter.

I've posted my name because I'm not afraid and Kevin knows what he's done to my children and I want him to be brought to justice.

If you like for me to attend your town hall meeting please let know when and where I'll be happy to make an appearnce. I'm sure Kevin is waiting too meet me anyway, right Kevin ?

Best of Luck !

Good observation.

During the 1932 election, the Socialist Labor Party candidate, Norman Thomas garnered almost one million votes.

Soon after, FDR highjacked the Socialist Party agenda for the Democrats and the Socialist Party was never again a serious contender.

Read their party platform:

The libs don't like being called socialists. I agree. It's demeaning to socialists.

Extremist liberal Democrats like Obama should be referred to as collectivists or more accurately Marxists.

It must be a campaign tactic on the part of Barb Johnson not to respond to this Register question. The less people know, the more likely she will get reelected.

It's nice to be an incumbent, especially a Democrat incumbent who is trying to run for a 6th term---that's 24 years folks! Also helps to have that name recognition after all these years.

Most people don't even know what a Clerk of Courts does and probably don't really care. I read Steve Schaeffer's web site and he has a section that describes the duties and responsibilities of the Clerk of Courts. If you are in to learning about county government you ought to read it. The biggest thing I got out of it is that the Clerk does not work FOR the Judges but WITH Judges. The Clerk only answers to the voters--the BOSS.

were very vocal in earlier Register articles in saying that Steve does not have the "Knowledge or Experience" to run the Clerk of Courts Office. Since these blogs started on October 13 they have been non-existent. Why?

Well for Steve not having the "Knowledge and Experience" needed to run the Clerks Office, he sure has hit 2 GRAND-SLAM homeruns on his Oct. 13 & 20 blogs. Both of his responses to the SR questions were very detailed and concise. He does have the "Knowledge and Experience" to do the job, and to do it well. PLUS, he has been answering other blogger's questions.

Now Barb, on the other hand, struck out with her answer to the Oct. 13 blog response, and didn't even bother to show up for the Oct. 20 blog; nor does she answer any of the blogger's questions.

That right there goes to show who really has the "Knowledge and Experience" to run the COC office and it isn't Barb. We've had the wrong person in that position for the past 19 years. It is time for Barb to move on and it is time for tremendous change in the COC that only Steve Schaeffer seems to be able to provide.

Yep, Barb and her supporters have been dead silent for almost 2 weeks now. They can't even defend her on her blog site. Perhaps they see the writing on the wall.

Born and raised in this town, love it just as much as the next person! The difference, I'm not willing to settle for being put into the category of being a "peon". You see, when you allow that, you allow yourself to be someone elses' doormat! My purpose isn't to argue with anyone, as much as it is to point out that as a tax-paying member of this community, we really must pay attention to what's going on, especially when done behind closed doors, in shady manners! Don't know about you, but I work to freakin hard to have my tax dollars MISUSED AND ABUSED! Don't appreciate it, let alone the fact that they feel they have the green light to continue doing so! I guess we'll all just have to wait and see, won't we? The way I see it, if this City has to fork over one penny for a firing they said was justified, whether thru an out-of-court settlement, or court ordered, will only prove there error! Who pays for it? The TAXPAYERS! p.s. If your purpose is to "change anyones' mind" well, I learned a long time ago to have an open mind, to think for myself. I live in Sandusky, not Stepford! Peace!

Just because you LOVE the town you were born and raised in doesn't mean you have to continuously stick up for the corruption that's going on in this County.

I've yet to insult you but as vicious as you are it's been hard not to......

Take this for what it’s worth. I am in the COC usually once, sometimes twice a day. When I was in the COC office recently doing research, I overheard a conversation with Barb (one of the very, very few times I have ever seen her in the office) and one of her employees. Apparently the employee was voicing a concern to Barb about not having the proper equipment they need to do their job, and Barb said, "Oh, don't worry, God will provide." Barb must not know the entire quote which goes something like this, "God will help those who help themselves."

Apparently she never did get the equipment that the office needed - I've never seen it in the office.

I think that is what Barb believes about the election. She won’t have to work real hard to campaign. All she seems to think she has to do is just sit back and pray real hard and God will provide her with a win. She seems to run her office on God providing everything for her and her staff. But if she doesn’t help herself by helping her staff, God won’t provide.

I like Steve’s tactic of being aggressive and willing to get the job done. By doing that, THEN and only then God will help to provide as a result of one’s labors.

hahaha

I wish I had a job where I only had to write an article once every two weeks. A job where I could write anything about anyone, then hide behind my office door and let people rip each other on these blogs because of the ridiculous things I write. I would have the backing of a newspaper that obviously can not afford to hire a decent editor. I could get out written by a high school girl who is not even getting paid. Then I could spend the rest of my day chasing the skirt of a woman who probably forgets my name half the time. I could write articles bashing the men and women who actually contribute something to society and be loved by criminals who also hate them. Matt Westerhold....just living the American Dream!!!

OK GUYS- My last comment was ERASED under shawn caston. Listen, I submitted explicit details of the night of events regarding the shooting that accused McDonald and Turner of Murder- these guys have been in prison for almost 15 years......

So hear it comes again, JUST WATCH HOW QUICKLY THIS WILL BE ERASED, right before your eyes.... I think this is a great holloween story ! boo-booooooo

- The night of the shooting Baxter accused three guys because they were all seen at the club together. While at the club caston is involved in an argument with jerome caffey over who can bench press the most weights.

- That very night, mcdonald drove both turner and caston to the club picking them up in his white car. Please note that caston and turner both were picked up at turner's home and mcdonald was driving his own vehicle, not riding with caston as Baxter has indicated. .

- After the club closes, caston was still very angry and intoxicated as he was ranting and raving about seeking revenge against caffey. You should all know that this was an argument with Caston and Caffey only. McDonald, once again, gave turner and caston a ride home from the club and before they reached their final destinations they stopped at the shell gas station, it was there that McDonald purchased party mixers and condoms for his evening with Ms. Harris. Ms. Harris had purchased a hotel in her name at the motel on Cleveland avenue and it was a mutual agreement that they would meet immediately after mcdonalds night at the club.

- It has been noted that while at the gas station, caston was observed by several people as to have been extremely intoxicated and angry, he was so out of control that he asked terry mcdonald if he had a gun to go kill caffey. Mcdonald had planned an intimate evening with ms harris and he was not entertaining caston with his ill thoughts. Besides, caston never hung out with mcdonald this was turner's friend. Turner stated that know one paid caston any attention because he always behaved in that fashion especially when he was drunk. Turner also admitted that caston would always want his gun and he would often give it to him as caston was only talking when he was drunk.

- As they left the shell gas station it was then that mcdonald dropped caston and turner off at turners and mcdonald proceeded to move on with his night meeting ms harris at the motel on Cleveland Aven._THIS WAS WHERE MCDONALD WAS AND IS INNOCENT FOLKS…… Meanwhile, turner at his home with caston, turned over a gun to caston and caston left the home of turner and walked home which was right down the street from his home with the gun, retrieving the keys from his girlfriends driving her red caviler.

- Caston's destination alone and mission to seek revenge was to the home of caffey. It was then during a stop-by that he turned out his head lights and opened fired 32 rounds of ammunition into the home of caffey. You should also know that during this gun sfire shoot out, Mr. caffey was shooting back as officers confiscated a smoking gun in the dryer. This is critical also, emergency room dr's revealed that the bullet wound that struck ms. Johnson came from the direction of the house and not the street. Baxter has all this information but do you really think he will tell the Johnson family this information or the newspaper . HECK KNOW

- Now get this, Turner admits that he heard the shots ring out, as caffeys home was in within range that he could you can hear the gun fire. Turner immediately knew that caston followed through with what he was planning to do, so he ran down to castons home, no car, and no caston. Turner admits that he returned back to his home pacing the floor worried sick as to what caston had done. All he could think about is how stupid he was to have given him his gun.

- Turner admits that later, caston is home and turner runs over to castons, only to find caston with his brother terry it was then that caston informed he shot up the home of jerome caffey and was instructed to rinse his hands in bleach by terry and that both got rid of the murder weapon throwing it lake erie. It was also reported that caston stated the police would never recover the gun because they threw the gun in lake erie. We all know that Lake Erie has no bottom.

_ So folks perfect plan for Baxter to set mcdonald up. Boy was he on to something; he wanted him for drugs that never happened, by gosh was he going to pin this murder on him. He's a mess that Baxter. SO READ BETWEEN THE LINES- mcdonald was framed he was no where near crime he was simply in a motel with ms harris having himself one heck of a good time. I know he wishes he would have been home with his wife and kids you think?

YOU FIGURE THE REST,,,,, please tell me if i should provide more information.

- that fact that the police did not know what kind of car was used in the shooting until baxter interviewed caston and caston said that there were 3000 cavilers , baxter stated himself caston was a dummy because it was caston who gave up the goods about the car that was used. Baxter never asked what car was used, caston did great work to help the investigation. Oh I forget caston was simply too drunk and couldn’t remember yeah right ! Baxter then order's the police to search the red caviler and guess what people they found three shell casings, but didn't bother to dust for finger prints placing, mcdonald and turner in the car. Caston also mentioned that he was so drunk he couldn't remember until baxter got in his ear about mcdonald and how badly he wanted him. So every time you erase my post look for me to keep telling this story.

I'm hear to haunt you - happy Halloween.

The answer is simple. Her clerks are so good with all the guidance, training and wisdom that she has provided that there are no inefficiencies in record-keeping. And so the public, the litigants, the attorneys,the title searchers and the judges will continue to receive the same quality work and service for the next four years as they have received for the past 20 years. One has no choice but to re-elect Barb Johnson for her 6th term.

I know a lot of out of town attorneys that LOVE the sloppy, negligent way the Erie County Clerk of Courts is run and the fact that the records are not ONLINE. I know some Erie County Judges that LOVE it too. And let's not forget Baxter.....

To: And the answer is wrote on Oct 24, 2008 3:25 PM:

Nice try. I have my own Title Company and I am in the COC daily (sometimes twice a day) to do research. I know FIRST HAND how inefficent the record-keeping is in that office. It is without a doubt THE WORST CLERK OF COURTS IN NORTHERN OHIO! ! I would guess that it is probably the worst in the entire state of Ohio.

You would think with all the "Experience and Knowledge" that she and her supporters say that she (with the 19 years experience) has that Erie County Clerk of Courts would be the best in Ohio and set an example for the state. However, it ranks 88th out of 88 Counties. I have never seen a "business" run that poorly. If I ran my business like that, I wouldn't have a business to run!

There are MANY, MANY, MANY times where her clerks can not find a file that I need. Her clerks have told me that they do not get any guidance or training from Barb. If this is the best "quality work and service" that you can come up with....well then that shows me how low the "bar" is set for you.

I'm voting for Schaeffer because:

Erie County deserves a COC office that is organized and run well.

Erie County deserves COC that is in the office EVERYDAY (Did I mention in the past 19 years, I have seen Barb maybe 8 times at the most?)

Erie County deserves a COC that will bring that office into the 21st century (she has had 8 years - that's 2 whole terms - to get the records on line).

Erie County deserves a COC that will DO THEIR JOB AND EARN THEIR $55,000 A YEAR SALARY!

A previous poster (Think of the money wasted wrote on Oct 23, 2008 7:15 AM:)stated it well when they pointed it out how much money Barb has wasted in the last 19 years. Between her salary (getting paid by the tax payers for not doing her job - roughly $855,000 a year [and THAT is on the low side]) with her uncollected court costs and fines $500,000 - $700,000.......that's going on $2 MILLIONS DOLLARS! ! ! I ask again, HOW CAN ANYONE RUN A BUSINESS LIKE THAT ! ? ! ? ! ?

Mr. "And the Answer is" you call THAT widsom ! ? ! ? ! ? If you call that wisdom, then I want some of those drugs you are taking - I'd love to be in LA -LA LAND with you! ! ! ! !

You are obviously a Barb supporter, so please respond. I'd LOVE to hear how you respond to this one.

Also, for anyone out there who thinks that all the sloppy and negligent way the COC is run is to cover up things; then the corrupt attorneys, judges and Baxter LOVE Barb. That's all the more reason to vote for Schaeffer. I have talked to him personally, and he won't let ANYTHING get covered up. He has no reason to let that happen! He will run an honest and upright office!

By the way, the Barb supporters have been quite for over a week. Why all of a sudden are you trying to speak out?

I apologize for not seeing that your original comment was dripping with sarcasim. I thought you were one of Barb's supporters that decided to come out and try to stick up for her. BTW, I wonder where they have been lately.....uhm.....

However, I stand by the facts that I wrote about her and her office. I am in there at least once a day and I know first hand what a shambles it is and that she is rarely in the office.

Again, I apologize for jumping on you and not seeing the sarcasim in your post. Does this mean I can't have any of the drugs I thought you were taking? :)

Yesterday's front page edition of the SR has an article GRANDMA ALLEGEDLY ABUSED 4 YEAR OLD GIRL. It then goes on to state that this happened in the year 2000!
Kevin Baxter is quoted as saying that it is not unusual for cases of alleged sexual abuse involving children to take a long time to come to trial.
Oh, come on already, Mr. Baxter! Nine years?????? I also noticed that there is yet another infamous Erie County CONFLICT OF INTEREST in the case.....
WHAT IN THE HE** IS GOING ON IN THIS COUNTY, ANYWAY?

Anonymous

If Erie County can't arrange to have a case FIXED by a Cuyahoga County judge in the jurisdiction of Cuyahoga County then bring the Cuyahoga County attorneys and the retired Lorain County judge into Erie County to FIX it!
(still curious as to why Bailey didn't object to Cirigliano's involvement---especially since Cirigliano was involved in the Baxter Estate case....shouldn't this have been CONFLICT OF INTEREST?)

In the legal section of the SR (October 23, 2008) there are six Erie County insurance agents that failed to comply with the continuing education requirements of section 3905.481 of the Revised Code for the 2005/2006 compliance period---therefore, their insurance licenses were revoked.
It further states that each of the six individuals may file an appeal as set forth in O.R.C.119.12 in the court of the common pleas in the COUNTY in which his/her business is located OR the common pleas in the COUNTY that the agent RESIDES IN.
The above has nothing to do with my case but OHIO LAW and the jurisdiction of COUNTIES sure do.
How does a case of FRAUD in an Erie County Probate Estate against an insurance company and OTHERS get FIXED by a Cuyahoga County judge in the jurisdiction of Cuyahoga County when the deceased WAS A LIFE-LONG RESIDENT OF ERIE COUNTY and the insurance agent does BUSINESS and RESIDES in ERIE COUNTY?

Matt Westerhold, being the "person" he is.... I mean a "person" who seems to know nothing about anything, but still manages to have people who feel like his editorials actually mean anything...a man who seems to know how to do Police work more than the men and women who actually...ya know....went to school for it. I wonder why he never wants to come down and do a ride along??? I wonder why all he does is write ONE editorial every couple of weeks?? I have read blogs on here....both for and against Nuesse that make more sense than what Matt writes...so I wonder how it is that he gets paid to write VERY sub par columns? Matt.. tell me you didnt pay money to go to school for them to teach how to write....if you did you should DEMAND a refund. You are getting outdone by people who have no experience in writing. I do think I know why you dont come to SPD and ride...im sure it is because if you did all the officers on that shift would go home sick so they wouldnt have to be near you....and I just dont think your fragile ego could handle such rejection. I am sure youre still reeling from Kim turning you down....youre sad Matt

Dear Jackie,

Unlike you I am afraid. Not for myself but for the Kids I mentioned that still have a court hearing coming up.

I for one will for sure be writing a letter to the link you left for us and I sure hope that it will do some good!

I thank you very much for your help as I have been grabbing for straws and writing letters and hahah have heard nothing back thus far. We have even appealed to Matt to be in the said hearing and haven't heard anything back!

Please some one stop the madness.

Kevin Baxter isn't the only bad link here and I think They should all go down!!!!!!!!!!!! Major audits of casses and accounting need to be done for all county officials and the lawyers and their buddies that enter twine here!

Does anyone know if there is going to be a town hall meeting? I would love to attend, and show my support.

Who is organizing it?
Please provide a list of places that you are considering using for the event.

Town hall meeting for what? Why don't you just report the whole friggin bunch and your cases to the State Bar and if they won't do anything report them to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Corrupt judges and prosecutors who hold the upper hand CANNOT protect their "friends" no matter what..........if they could then there would be no point of even having a legal system.....

Elsebeth

HAS DONE JUST AS YOU'VE SUGGESTED. SHE WAS DISBARRED AND LOCKED-UP FOR CHALLENGING THIS CORRUPT SYSTEM AND EXPOSING THE PLAYERS. ANY MORE SUGGESTIONS???

LET'S HAVE IT AT HIGH NOON IN THE HALL OUTSIDE BAXTER'S OFFICE. LET'S ESTABLISH A DATE AND HAVE IT COVERED BY THE SR.

You say Elsebeth did as suggested and she was disbarred and locked up for challenging the corrupt system and exposing the players....
Are you suggesting that everyone with complaints about this corrupt system is going to be locked up? So who's going to do the LOCKING UP? The State Bar and the FBI? Give me a break.....
I'm not the least bit afraid of Baxter and this corrupt (and I do mean CORRUPT) legal system in this County and they KNOW I'm not so BRING IT ON, sweetheart.

Hi Nick! Can I call you Nick? I hope so. A small group of bloggers including myself have been looking for some news digs. Usually we work the Sue Dautry Blog but we’ve been asked to leave so I’ve been looking for a new home for the group. I would be bringing along Lance, AverageJoe, BlackJack, Art Vandalay, Nurse Kathy, Jeff the pervert, Mr. Foam (who might be jeff), Mr. Ed, Regarding Sues Blog , “The Narrator” and myself of course.

I notice you write pretty short and don’t have a lot of comments, maybe we could punch this blog up for you. I can offer you 400 to 700 words a week and I am pretty political. You can go over to “For What It’s Worth…” and check us out, unless Mick has cleaned us out with his new found knowledge that is. Let us know if you’re interested. Some of the group wanted to work “oy with the poodles” but I’m against it.

A town hall meeting would allow the citizens in the community the opportunity to voice their concerns and complaints to the public officials in a face off.

In the latter part of 2007 the citizens of cuyahoga requested a town hall meeting and it was permitted and also televised by 19 Action News.

I believe that we all have enough legitimate concerns with the corrupt judicial system in Erie County to request the issues regarding judicial fairness be addressed by our local public servants.

I believe that this event could draw a group large enough to book the Nia Convention Center at Kalahari.

However, there are several other places that could possibly accommadate a large crowd, e.i., Sandusky High School Auditorium, The Conference Room at the County Building, and the VFW club.

If anyone has any suggestions please post them so that I can receive some feedback. I am sure that the Sandusky Register would love to attend and provide full coverage of this event.

People.... get a life! If Baxter is so corrupt, why does no one ever run against him? Don't say that he and his so called 'GOB's' run this town. There are more honest people in this town than not. To many of the slander-happy bloggers, he or someone in his office probably handled a case against you and that is why you are so bitter. The others probably don't have a single thought for him/herself and allows themselves to be lead by the nose. How sad.

There an article by Mike Fitzpatrick - that states OFFBEAT: Conspiracy ? I don't think so. He's harming mcdonald, ejay baxter, krista harris, to name a few, He actually states that Kevin BAxter is a great prosecutor and justifying kevins misconduct. .... Please check this story out !

Anonymous

Mike you should know this wrote on Oct 27, 2008 8:48 AM:

" The night of the shooting Baxter accused three guys because they were all seen at the club together. While at the club caston is involved in an argument with jerome caffey over who can bench press the most weights.

- That very night, mcdonald drove both turner and caston to the club picking them up in his white car. Please note that caston and turner both were picked up at turner's home and mcdonald was driving his own vehicle, not riding with caston as Baxter has indicated. .

- After the club closes, caston was still very angry and intoxicated as he was ranting and raving about seeking revenge against caffey. You should all know that this was an argument with Caston and Caffey only. McDonald, once again, gave turner and caston a ride home from the club and before they reached their final destinations they stopped at the shell gas station, it was there that McDonald purchased party mixers and condoms for his evening with Ms. Harris. Ms. Harris had purchased a hotel in her name at the motel on Cleveland avenue and it was a mutual agreement that they would meet immediately after mcdonalds night at the club.

- It has been noted that while at the gas station, caston was observed by several people as to have been extremely intoxicated and angry, he was so out of control that he asked terry mcdonald if he had a gun to go kill caffey. Mcdonald had planned an intimate evening with ms harris and he was not entertaining caston with his ill thoughts. Besides, caston never hung out with mcdonald this was turner's friend. Turner stated that know one paid caston any attention because he always behaved in that fashion especially when he was drunk. Turner also admitted that caston would always want his gun and he would often give it to him as caston was only talking when he was drunk.

- As they left the shell gas station it was then that mcdonald dropped caston and turner off at turners and mcdonald proceeded to move on with his night meeting ms harris at the motel on Cleveland Aven._THIS WAS WHERE MCDONALD WAS AND IS INNOCENT FOLKS…… Meanwhile, turner at his home with caston, turned over a gun to caston and caston left the home of turner and walked home which was right down the street from his home with the gun, retrieving the keys from his girlfriends driving her red caviler.

- Caston's destination alone and mission to seek revenge was to the home of caffey. It was then during a stop-by that he turned out his head lights and opened fired 32 rounds of ammunition into the home of caffey. You should also know that during this gun sfire shoot out, Mr. caffey was shooting back as officers confiscated a smoking gun in the dryer. This is critical also, emergency room dr's revealed that the bullet wound that struck ms. Johnson came from the direction of the house and not the street. Baxter has all this information but do you really think he will tell the Johnson family this information or the newspaper . HECK KNOW

- Now get this, Turner admits that he heard the shots ring out, as caffeys home was in within range that he could you can hear the gun fire. Turner immediately knew that caston followed through with what he was planning to do, so he ran down to castons home, no car, and no caston. Turner admits that he returned back to his home pacing the floor worried sick as to what caston had done. All he could think about is how stupid he was to have given him his gun.

- Turner admits that later, caston is home and turner runs over to castons, only to find caston with his brother terry it was then that caston informed he shot up the home of jerome caffey and was instructed to rinse his hands in bleach by terry and that both got rid of the murder weapon throwing it lake erie. It was also reported that caston stated the police would never recover the gun because they threw the gun in lake erie. We all know that Lake Erie has no bottom.

_ So folks perfect plan for Baxter to set mcdonald up. Boy was he on to something; he wanted him for drugs that never happened, by gosh was he going to pin this murder on him. He's a mess that Baxter. SO READ BETWEEN THE LINES- mcdonald was framed he was no where near crime he was simply in a motel with ms harris having himself one heck of a good time. I know he wishes he would have been home with his wife and kids you think?

YOU FIGURE THE REST,,,,, please tell me if i should provide more information.

- that fact that the police did not know what kind of car was used in the shooting until baxter interviewed caston and caston said that there were 3000 cavilers , baxter stated himself caston was a dummy because it was caston who gave up the goods about the car that was used. Baxter never asked what car was used; caston did great work to help the investigation. Oh I forget caston was simply too drunk and couldn’t remember yeah right! Baxter then order's the police to search the red caviler and guess what people they found three shell casings, but didn't bother to dust for finger prints placing, mcdonald and turner in the car. Caston also mentioned that he was so drunk he couldn't remember until baxter got in his ear about mcdonald and how badly he wanted him. So every time you erase my post look for me to keep telling this story.

I'm hear to haunt you - happy Halloween. "

In Cuyahoga County people were PAID not to run against the prosecutor. They were "paid" by giving them better jobs that they were not qualified for with the county.
As for there being more honest people in this county than not---I'm an honest person and Baxter never handled a case against ME directly---instead they indirectly pulled off SCAMS with Cuyahoga County attorneys to cover up CRIMINAL ACTS OF FRAUD pulled off by an Erie County attorney, a Lorain County attorney......and an Erie County Judge. So get your facts straight.......

Why hasn't Kevin filed a lawsuit against Krista Harris? I mean, hey, if this lady says that she was forced into a non-consensual sexual relationship well you would think that this white guy would at least sue her in court. Right.

Something isn't right with this case. I think that Baxter had some type of relationship with Harris. What do you all think?

Anonymous

I am very much interested in hearing Krista's version of events. From what I can recall she states that Kevin Baxter set her up on sham theft charges. I would like to know if that is true, and can it be proven from court documents? What is all of the talk about Double Jeopardy? How many times was she tried in a court of law? Why was she offered Diversion by the Prosecutor, then to receive a 5 year prison sentence because she took the case to trial.

Now I know that doesn't make any sense to me. Can someone explain why the state would make such a sweeeet offer to the defendant to only turn around and the state that they want her to go to prison for 10 years. Something is not right with her case. How many counts was she indicted on? How many counts was she convicted on? What type of prison sentence was imposed?

Inquiring minds would like to know

How do you know that Elsebeth Baumgartner was not telling the truth? Did anybody ever make an attempt to prove her accussations to be false? It's true she's sitting in a prison cell, put there by a Cuyahoga County Judge, but didn't a Lorain County prosecutor himself call the Judge corrupt?
How do you know that the retired Lt. Roy Prewitt is telling the truth? Are you GOD?
You say that the Erie County Prosecutor's office, in your opinion, may be a lot of things, but crooked is not one.....you claim you do not think they do anything DISHONEST to win cases...
I can give you a list of people, including Lorain County and Cuyahoga County attorneys, that must have laughed themselves to sleep tonight after reading your article.....

CSI Sandusky wrote on Oct 27, 2008 7:45 PM:

" You people are un-beleivable.

MIKE FITZPATRICK put forth a very reasonable theory as to what happened.

It is totally possible that Krista did in fact purjer herself and then recant out of fear for her safety. Blaming the prosecutor takes the heat off of her. thus removing the potential for physical retaliation on her.

As for Baxter not pressing perjury charges against her. Well, would it even be worth the cost to tax payers to persue that prosecution?

AS TO Krista HArris going to jail for theft, evendently there was enough evidencve to get an indictment from a grand jury, and enough evidence to convict her at trial. The prosecuter only presents the case. the jury decides guilt

OF course we all know that neither side wants the truth to be known.

Drug tests and lie detector tests would put an end to all of this. yes I realize that lie detector tests are inadmissible in court. "

I wanted to personally thank the Sandusky Register for streaming the John McCain speech today. While I’ll be voting for Obama it was still great fun and excitement to have a major party candidate visit our small town. People shouldn’t be disappointed with the time spent here by McCain, he’s a busy man these last few weeks before the election. Thank you Mr. McCain for the time we got.

Sandusky readers you should enjoy the moment, you’ll probably bring up the visit in some conversation years from now! This reminds me of the Sandusky football coach who wouldn’t let his players hear John Kerry speak at the Mansfield football game. I know from children in his class that he was a Bush supporter and an avid Kerry hater. To bad his personal views got in the way of what a teacher should be. That was something those kids would remember a lot longer than that game. Where is that coach anyway? At least Bush will be on the bench pretty soon!

Also of note, its always fun to see the Secret Service boys in their Ray-Bans watching the crowd, just like in a Hollywood movie.

What was local gadfly Jeff Krabill doing? He was on camera a lot but didn’t appear to be doing anything but watching the crowd. Was he a super secret Secret Service man? Or was he there to make Joe Plumber look dynamic and interesting? Just wondering…

And to the elderly lady standing by the Register camera, you said you enjoy coffee and cigarettes in the morning (for reference). Were you really that excited to see Joe the Plumber? I thought you might have been flashing back to a 1963 Beatles concert or something. Seriously, after the election I bet you could get Joe in your life, or at least in your toilet tank…

Bob Williams should be promoting Bob Barr, Libertarian for President, but he wrote an article on his website saying the Libertarian Party should be spanked for having Bob Barr as its candidate. Bob Williams is supporting the Constitution Party's Chuck Baldwin for President, and Bob Williams is the District 9 Representative of the Libertarian Party's Central Committee! Williams is doing a Colin Powell on the Libertarian Party.

So when Williams says the mass media is censoring McKinney of the Green Party, Williams no doubt means that ALL third party candidates are getting ignored. The Register did cover Bob Barr's visit to Northeast Ohio, but the Cleveland paper and the Lorain paper ignored it!

That said, Bob Barr is the best choice for president. Yes, it's true that he used to be a Republican. But he quit them and that is what any good decent Christian would do. Ron Paul should quit the GOP too, but he doesn't. Bob Barr did! And Barr says he did wrong and Republicans are wrong! This is to his credit.

Ohio voters who believe that Obama is different from McCain have been duped the differences in their oratorial presentations. The dupes include the reporters at the Register who also assume that Obama is different from McCain. They only SOUND different when they give campaign speeches - their voting records are nearly identical. McBama both voted for Bush over 90% of their votes in Congress as Senators!

I'm worried about the future of Ohio's economy. I know that McBama will continue to promote the same failed policies that Democrats and Republicans have been jointly promoted for too long now.

The Libertarian Party is much, much more than Bob Barr. The Libertarian Party is America's third largest party since 1972. They have hundreds of Libertarians holding offices around the country. Libertarians are our best hope for the future. www.lpo.org

As Election Day 2008 rolls around this year there is almost a feeling of inevitability in the air. Barack Obama leads in just about all the polls for President, he’s contesting in several traditional red states like Indiana and Georgia and does not appear to be losing ground in any of the blue states.

The one blue state that the McCain camp points to as a target is Pennsylvania. Currently, according to realclearpolitics.com, PA sits at a +8.5 for Obama and as high as +14 in some polls. If this is McCain’s last best hope then God bless him. He appears to be a drowning man swimming for the anchor. McCain is hoping some undercurrent of western PA racism will float him to the top on November 4th in the Keystone State and save him. We’ll see…

By all media accounts if you are a Democrat, moderate or liberal, a poor man, a union man, a black man, a Muslim man, a French man or any other kind of man that Rush Limbaugh has yelled at in the last month, things are looking pretty good for you.

Buyer’s remorse? Is anyone having second thoughts about Barack Obama? With all this good news something must be wrong. Can this many people be right? Not likely…

Can Joe the Plumber be wrong? I heard him myself; he said we need to take our country back. Back from who Joe? The George Bush Republicans? Joe might be right; the McCain Republicans need to take the country back from the Bush Republicans. That way we get the country back and the Republicans still have it, win-win! Joe is straight, Joe is wise…

And what about this Obama guy? Is he even American? What about his birth certificate? The Republican governor of Hawaii has certified that it is genuine and sealed it, after letting independent fact checkers examine it, copy and photograph it. This sound like a conspiracy. What are they hiding?

How about Obama himself? At onetime he had some kind of inspiring biography. Local boy, bi-racial, fatherless, raised by mother and grandparents, forced to study long and hard to get an education. Attends the best schools culminating in a law degree from Harvard University where he became the Harvard Law Review's first black president. What’s kind of crap is this rascal trying to prove?

And now we find out he is a terrorist, or at least he pals around with terrorists. And what about that minister? Who wasn’t shocked to find out that black people still harbor some occasional resentment toward the white man? We just assumed that at the end of every service the congregation would take turns standing up and naming their favorite white guy. How sad to find different. I guess there is still some work to do…

Is that an American story? You want a real American story? Rich party boy from wealthy political family goes to Yale, with family intervention, sadly he feels the other student think they are better than him but he overcomes and graduates. He then becomes rich middle aged party boy, finds Christ, buys a Major League baseball team with no money and becomes a governor then a President. Now that is an American story you can be proud of!

Buyer’s remorse? I’m new to it, I’ve never voted for a Bush…

Nick: I tend not to believe polls that often they have been wrong way too many times before. For example, Reagan won in a landslide in 1980 when the polls were close a few days before. In 2004 exit polls showed large wins for Kerry where Bush eventually won the state. I believe this is because regular guys like me and you hate getting phone calls and will lie to the pollsters just to mess with them!

So, do you live at home with your parents?

Re BO:

Yea right. Reads like you've chosen a heart surgeon to perform your critical operation who has no ER experience but who gushingly promises you a splendid outcome.

IMO, like Clinton, the media, which has helped to create BO’s aura of personality, will work to destroy him. For the Fourth Estate it's all about ratings and eyeballs. Re-watch the movie, 'Network.' Not that long ago fiction became reality.

Gettin' back to principles of the U.S. Constitution of limited Federal govt. would be favorable to either of the Dumb and Dumber parties’ political pap.

Why is America stuck with just two parties that do not work anymore. We have two parties trading power every 8 years, and getting nothing done except lining there own pocket. CNN had a report about senator ted stevens who was just convicted on 6 felony counts of accepting gift from government contractors. I found it shocking that he will be able to keep his $122K a year pension even after the passing of the new ethics bill. Why, you ask? Because the bill only effects people who are convicted of bribery, theft, and 3 or 4 others NOT ILLEGALLY ACCEPTING GIFTS!!!

That proves to me right there, we cannot trust these people anymore. They do not have our best interest at heart anymore they only want power!!! republicans did the last 12 years, the democrats did it before them. The sad thing is we got here by just ignoring whats going on until something happens that effects our pocket books; Its only then were torked off. We still don't call our congress person or senator. We still dont make time to vote. More times than not we just throw up our hands and say I have no control! The truth ithough s we are in control, but it takes effort. It take you and me to know how our elected official vote, what bills they sponsor, how they govern, and to let them know what you approve of and dont! It takes all of us 100% of us to goto the polls and vote!

You must be cowards because you are now challenged to address this corrupt officials and all you do is stand mute.

Shame on you, stop complaining about them if you don't want to do anything about the deplorable situation this county is in.

Someone tries to assist all of you in bringing this matter to the fore-front and you guys just back off.

Well, maybe it's not as bad as you say it is. Let me know when you've had enough of the brow beatings okay.

Gee, I'm game and I don't back off from anybody but what's your point? Do you really believe these public officials would have a Town Meeting? Give me a break. That is a joke, joke, joke. So name the time and place. Where are you passing out flyers? What's the Town Meeting supposed to accomplish?
I also would like to mention that I already addressed these officials (it's a matter of public record) and THEY are the ones that are standing MUTE, not I.

Standing MUTE on their part is what they are KNOWN for...Oh by the way, what's going on with the Ejay Baxter case? Sounds like Judge Tygh Tone is STANDING MUTE!

Bishop Cox is willing to support Sandusky. He has expressed a great interest especially since he's the spokes person for the McDonald Case actively seeking the release of McDonald.

Bishop Cox has been asking all of the ministers in Sandusky to help get rid of Kevin Baxter for years. He agrees that a town hall would be a start for the ministers to express the corruption of Kevin Baxter.

Please give Bishop Cox a call at
937-648-4423, He will be happy to moderate or be apart of a much needed Town Hall and show his support !

Thanks !
