Democratic Inquiry – Debate & More

Join the Debate Watch Party tonight at JAFB on the corner of Beall and Liberty in Wooster, as the Democrats take over the place. Bring your own munchies. Bloomberg is doing live fact checking. Along with every Democrat watching. (There was an email incorrectly stating it was at HQ)

Found: one pair of sunglasses, found on the driveway the day we met to confirm David as a candidate for Commissioner.

Rumor (not many sources are higher than this) has it the cast of Orange Is The New …

Joining Hillary were former Ohio governor and current U.S. Senate candidate Ted …

With Jean Mohr, the BOE Chair and other Democratic member, I voted to certify Mr. Spoonamore’s Independent candidacy.

Both Republican members voted against, so the Secretary of State broke the tie, choosing not to certify Mr. Spoonamore’s candidacy.

Judge Wiest agreed with …

And after more than four decades, Cook is still at it, brainstorming with tablemates at Friday’s 161st consecutive annual Jackson Day Dinner over possible recruits for local races coming up in the not too distant future even as her good friend Linda Houston introduced Cook as the party’s recipient of the 2016 Old Hickory Award.

A long-time correspondent for The (Akron) Beacon Journal and a member of …
