Support conservative candidates,
Jack & April Sabo
for state Republican central committee
32nd district Ashtabula / Trumbull.
Jack and April Sabo were staunch supports of mine in Ashtabula county when I was still in the race.They were originally recomended to me by Charlie Frye, who
will shortly be the GOP chairman there. Charlie engineered in his county the
type of reformation that we are trying on the state level.
Jack and April, as well as Charlie, are Sandra O'Brien supporters. They share with Sandy and I , among other things, the core values of limited government, fiscal responsibilty, free market economics and individual freedom.
They have been working very hard over the past several months and are a part of
a larger group statewide that we have running to try to achieve a majority on
the statewide central committee. This goal became my number one priority after
Brunner lost (ha ha) my petitions. It became very evident to me during the race
that the Ohio Republican Party leadership was either totally out of touch with the grassroots of the party or worse, didn't give a damn about the little people that pull the lever in the votiong booth. Unfortunatley, as time went on, I realized that it
was the latter.
Jack and April are two of the few (about 10 of 55 total) that I have personally,
in writing endorsed. I did so with them because they have shown the personal
initiative and committment to not only have a solid shot at winning, but to
stick to their conservative values if elected and not roll over for Kevin
Dewine. I also know that they are close to Charlie Frye, who will serve as support
As you probably know by now, the ORP leadership has now spent hundreds of
thousands of $ to fight this conservative effort to put grassroot conservatives
on the State Central Committee. Think how Portman or Kasich must feel. This past week there were 2 serarate items in the papers as follows:
1. Portman and Kasich both trail their Dem opponents by small but significant
margins (4-6 pts);
2. The Dem statewide ticket candidates are all (except for Husted) out
fundraising the Republican counterparts.
And Kevin Dewine is depleting the party coffers at their expense to keep his
If that weren't bad enough, Dewine has openly picked a fight with the Tea
party/912/Patriot groups and therfore is alienating the party base in an
election year, again at Kasich and Portman's expense.
This is insanity. The only way we can get common sense to prevail is to force
the issue by getting a majority on the SCC. Unfortunatly, Dewine may have
already screwed our major candidates as set forth above.I know this is a
longwinded answer, but hopefully this expains both why it is necessary to push
so hard and why Jack and April Sabo are the candidates of choice in your area,
The current SCC people in your area are lapdogs for Dewine and have been
complicit in creating this mess.
Thanks for the letter Steve.
We need to put back conservatives, like Jack and April Sabo in the state and county Republican central committees in order to stop the madness in government.
It is so out of control now, that to a rational person it cannot make sense.
