For those of you who believed, thank you.
For those of you who encountered me with an open mind for the first time, thank you.
For those who visited this site to learn about the candidates- you’re welcome.
To the Montgomery County Democratic Party, the State Democratic Party, the AFL-CIO and to Sherrod Brown- stay out of primaries, let the people decide. Maybe if you worked harder at building up your party, and holding fair and honest primaries, you’d have more people running. Every unopposed candidate is a FAIL- and I saw way too many of those today.
To the Fayette County Dems and the Greene County Dems- thank you for your open arms and minds. If I were you, I’d be seceding from OH-10 and the Montgomery Dems as fast as possible. For as long as this district puts you in holy matrimony, your voices will mean little.
- To Sharen Neuhardt, you better do better than any of the last 5 softies the party has sent to battle with Turner. You didn’t impress me one iota with your life story.
- To Olivia, I want to know your secrets.
- To Tom McMasters, please go back to being a Republican, you didn’t fool anyone.
- To Ryan Steele- congrats on coming in 2nd in Fayette County, and keep your chin up.
- To Mack Van Allen, it’s been a pleasure meeting you, I look forward to working together to change things for the better.
To my readers- I need to take a break for a bit. Let me know if I missed a sign somewhere- or grab it and bring it to the office if you can. I’ll have some commemorative ringer t-shirts for sale soon.
What’s next? I hope to find a race or two in town where I can get all the candidates to work together to hold a well programed, fair and clean election, to prove it can be done. See my post about “The Dayton Process”

Turner got almost 3x the votes in the primary than all Dems together. The Montgomery County Democratic Party “Leadership” should be recalled.
