Give me your tired your poor? Give me a break...
Commissioner Mary Samide, our resident Statue of Liberty… has been inviting low income, government dependent residents to our county. Mary is saying…, to the “poor and huddled masses, yearning to breathe free”, come to Geauga County..., we will take care of you!
Mary Samide and her band of merry men, Tracy Jemison and Bill Young supported the Casa Lucia, government subsidized “public housing” project in Middlefield.
Casa Lucia is being built by the Catholic Charities Housing Corporation that develops “affordable housing.”
Proudly, Catholic Charities stated, “Until recently we had not yet stretched to rural Geauga County.”
Thanks to Samide, Jemison and Young,we have opened yet another door for individuals who cannot afford to live here, but expect it is their right, at our expense, of course.
Mary Samide, Tracy Jemison and Bill Young were among the first visitors of a recent Habitat for Humanity home dedication. Our Geauga County Commissioners gave $20,000 of our tax monies to build a brand new home in the Chagrin Falls Park Community for a “low-income” family.
And last but not worst, Mary Samide, Traci Jemison and Bill Young spent more than $108, 915.00 improving the property of private homeowners, until residents demanded the practice be discontinued.
The damage that Mary Samide and co-horts, Traci Jemison and Bill Young have done during their tenure may at this point be irreparable, but certainly, the time has come to put out Mary’s torch…

Thanks Judy.... excellent article.... and true also!
As many of you know, Commissioner Mary Samide has been on our most unwanted list for at least a couple of years now and for very good reason.
Mary claims to be a conservative Republican but her record over the years does NOT show that.
I and many others consider Mary to be a R.I.N.O. (republican in name only) and more of a tax and spend liberal.
The unconstitutional way she handles Geauga tax money is more socialist. She took an oath to uphold the Constitution but does not do that.
Subsidising people who cannot aford to live in rural areas like Geauga, with other peoples hard earned tax money, is part of the United Nations Agenda 21 plan to urbanize these rural areas.... it is also unconstitutional and Mary is more than willing to go along with this.
Mary will whine and try to weasle her way out of responsibility for her actions by saying hers is only one vote of three.... but we all know Mary is the leader of the pack.
It is my opinion that Mary Samide's liberal, socialistic policies have done alot of damage to rural Geauga County.... SHE MUST GO!
