Cannot say it enough - so proud of Pres. DeGioia - my former RD & from my high school too. His approach absolutely reflects what I learned in action as a student at GU - and as a Jew there, I had more than a few occasions to have substantive differences requiring civil discourse.

When a six month wait was ordered regarding gas well drilling late last year in Ohio and senior US Senator from Ohio, Sherrod Brown, supported that, Ohio Treasurer and GOP candidate set to challenge Brown, Josh Mandel, wrote and spoke publicly against the halt, saying Brown supports Washington bureaucrats and was a fringe extremist.

A lesson in why you get it right the first time →
Kids, if you want a lesson in why you take the time to get buy-in and get it right the first time around and avoid other costs you cannot and should not and do not need to risk, look no further than the fiascos resulting from Ohio’s redistricting process.
Mandel noted as addition to Tribe in Congress... →
Actually, Josh has flip flopped on whether identity politics matter. Early on, he said it didn’t but within the last two years, he has been quoted as indicating that he thinks the religion of a candidate can make a difference for voters. I’ve always said that of course it might - just like gender - but it is FAR from conclusive except for the most rigid one issue voters - which btw can...

First Words from Pepper Pike Mayor-elect Rick Bain... →
Making sure residents continue to follow our city government work as closely as the newly elected council members and mayor did before being elected remains a major goal of mine. When the watchdogs get elected, vigilance continues to be necessary, less complacency or ego take over again.

Topeka, Kansas City Council Considers... →
If this story about electeds who tool an oath to take care of their city and are now decriminalizing domestic violence in the name of saving money is true, they should be immediately removed from office for failing to uphold their oath. They can’t think of a single other way to save money than to let people who beat up spouses or partners be allowed to beat up spouses and partners?...
Sarah Palin-affiliated law firm made early-state... →
When I planned to run for City Council, I printed out the Election calendar in March - even though my filing deadline was August 20. That a person who might run for President of the USA wouldn’t even be gathering the relevant election calendars until less than four weeks before the first drop dead deadline is pretty arrogant - and reckless.
