2009 Election Recap

The Good:

  • Republican governors in Virginia and New Jersey

  • Republican mayor in Dayton. Congrats Mr. Mayor-Elect Gary Leitzell

  • David Esrati loses again...this time for Dayton City Commission.

  • Mayor D'Epifanio re-elected here in Fairfield

  • The good people of Allen County repealed a tax increase put in place by Republicans in that county. Congrats to SOB Alliance member Mark Vernik for his victory on this one!

  • The Bad:

  • Mayor Mallory re-elected in the city of Cincinnati. Brad Wenstrup was a surprisingly good candidate, but Cincinnati is a lost cause.

  • It doesn't look like the face of Cincinnati City Council changed...

  • Hoffman's loss in NY-23. That seat will be in play again and the NRCC will STILL find a way to screw it up.

  • Friend of the Show Scott Spradlin lost his race to be Union Township Trustee...better luck next time Scott!

  • The Mixed Bag:

  • Issue 1 passed. Our veterans deserve every benefit we can give them, but we really can't afford this one at this time.

  • Issue 2 passed. It is an expansion of government. And it won't hold off HSUS and PETA from trying to make it worse. But our farmers got what they wanted.

  • Issue 3 passed. It wasn't perfect, but it was better than previous attempt at bringing gambling to Ohio. The best part is seeing that LiarPAC loses.
