Quotes of the Day and other tidbits

"Liberty is from God; liberties, from the devil." ~ Berthold Auerbach

"He alone deserves liberty and life who daily must win them anew." ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

** I was not surprised to see that Judge Charles Doneghy's ruling sending the issue of the chairman of the Lucas County Republican Party to the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee. The law is extremely clear that conflicts such as this are decided by the party's state central committee.

The judge ruled that the SCC must act within 30 days of his yesterday ruling to pick either Jon Stainbrook or Jeff Simpson as the chairman. From everything I'm hearing, the decision will go to Simpson.

But don't count Stainbrook out, he won't go quietly and I expect more court challenges will be filed by him or Megan Gallagher.

** Ten candidates for Lucas County Commissioner - what a great field!

In a future post, I'll be looking at each person and providing some insight on what their primary campaigns might hold. There are, of course, advantages and disadvantages for each person, but we're fortunate to have five Democrats and four Republicans vying for our votes.

** Toledo City Council didn't act on the immobilization/impoundment of vehicles with unpaid red light/speed camera violations. Instead, they want to renegotiate the contract with RedFlex, the camera provider.

And I thought this was all about safety! (sarcasm off)
