New Cuyahoga Now Event Monday

15 10 2009

Hey everybody…. For those of you who know me, you know I never bring stuff to you that’s b.s.  I’ve always been a straight shooter and been calling a spade a spade ’81.  So here’s an event that I’m proud to say that I’m co-hosting.  Go to the website and educate yourself about Issues 5 and 6.

To over simplify it…. Issue 5 will keep our existing 3 person commissioner system and some outside party will do a study to see how we can fix that.  But of course it’ll cost money and happen at some point down the line.  Worst case scenario nothing will change and we will have wasted that almighty dollar.

Issue 6 will scrap what we have now and institute a single executive who takes the fall when the shit hits the fan.  Advising him will be a council who represents the constituents of Cuyahoga County.  That’ll happen like yesterday (in political terms of course, lol).

Please RSVP to robyn.smyers@sbcglobal.net

So some say Issue 5 is bunk because it’s something done in the future and nothing will happen now, plus there’s the chance that nothing will get fixed and we’ll be doing this again next election.

Some say Issue 6 is bunk because it will prob not fix everything and we won’t be able to elect our own coroner for example.  It puts our fate in the hands of officials that the single executive will be appointing.

I say 6 because the blame is easier to pin.  As it stands now, Hagan and Dimora are both being accused of some serious quid pro quo and ethics charges, so the system is already flawed.  I’m not on the level that I need to pick a sheriff or a coroner or a auditor or whomever those random people on the ballot are.  I feel that the experts should stick to what they are good at.  If I elect someone to a high position, I base that off of character, time spent in office, intellectual capacity, and choice of boxers, briefs, or commando (j/k on that last part).  So if I elect them, I feel that they will take the necessary council to elect the right person for the job.  I am not capable of being that council, lol.  Plus that would be change RIGHT NOW.  It may not be the end all be all, but at least we tried, and can fix it from there.  But everyone knows it isn’t working now, so we have to try SOMETHING. 

Please RSVP to robyn.smyers@sbcglobal.net

Hence why I am- for the second time- co-chairing something political (cringe) because just like needing Josh Mandel in Columbus, Cuyahoga County needs change NOW! I hope you’ll agree with me and come out on Monday (see below). 

Please RSVP to robyn.smyers@sbcglobal.net.  Thanks!
