RALPH SPIDALIERI VS. MARY SAMIDE
In one of the local papers was a listing of candidates who filed for the March 6th 2012 primary.
Of particular interest was the Geauga Commissioners race. Ralph Spidalieri (R) filed against Mary Samide (R.... stands for RINO not Republican).
All three commissioners are horrible.... the other two being Tracy Jemison and Bill Young.... but Mary leads the pack. I think they have done alot of harm to Geauga County.
This has been a long time comming, but at last it is here! Someone very competent and credible is finally running against Mary Samide who is on our most unwanted list.
That someone is Ralph Spidalieri.
Alot of people know who Ralph is. He is a former Shaker Heights police officer. Ralph recently resigned as a part time Geauga Deputy Sheriff, feeling this would be a conflict of interest. This was an emotional decision for him, being a dedicated police officer for 22 years, but he felt strongly that the commissioners office needed some serious housecleaning. Ralph was a good officer.... not the kind with the militant attitude that wanted to ticket you or beat on your head. Ralph is not the kind of person who abuses his authority and is as honest as the day is long.... he is not a liar.... something I can't say about most of our elected officials.
As far as handling finances and having good business sense.... you tell ME! He has built several successfull businesses in Geauga County and Lake County, creating jobs, in the worst economic times we have seen since the depression of the 30's. I am referring to Great Lakes Outdoor Supply in Chesterland, Middlefield and Madison.... also Top Gun shooting range in Middlefield. He has also aquired a little strip mall in Middlefield that will also generate more jobs and income for the township.
You have probably already guessed this but Ralph is a strong defender of the Second Amendment and also the rest of the Constitution. He is concerned about the erosion of our rights.
Ralph Spidalieri is one of us!!
Do you think I sound over excited about Ralph running? Well.... I am! Many of you don't realize how important this race is.
Do you think I am over doing it with all the accolades for him? Well.... I'm not. I know Ralph, and I know all these things to be true about him.
It's about time we have someone running against Mary Samide who is the complete opposite of her.... who will put a stop to unconstitutional spending of county money.... who won't lie to us.... who cares about our Constitution and will demonstrate it.... who has a history of good fiscal and business sense and will apply that to running our county.
If these are the qualities you want in someone who controls Geauga County finances and spending (your money), then Ralph Spidalieri is your man.
