Ghiz's support for Democrats
Dear fellow tax hikers, one of our favorite things about Leslie Ghiz is her support for Democratic candidates who share her belief in raising taxes. When Ghiz endorsed Democrat David Pepper for County Commissioner in 2006, she didn't just help Pepper, she helped give control of our county to 2 tax-hiking Democrats. That is exactly what we expect from a good Republican.
Ghiz's support for Democrats didn't end with Pepper. In the most recent City Council election, Ghiz proudly endorsed Democrat Jeff Berding and another Pepper-supporter Chris Bortz, while refusing to endorse an anti-tax Republican Charlie Winburn. Read what Ghiz wrote in her October 29th newsletter:
Chris Bortz joined with Ghiz to endorse David Pepper, support a massive $800 million Sales Tax increase, vote to subsidize $800,000 to the Freedom Center, and push hard for a $200 million streetcar through Over The Rhine. Jeff Berding was the leader of the effort to impose the Stadium Sales Tax hike that saved our county. In addition he has also endorsed the streetcar, Barack Obama, subsidies to the Freedom Center, the $800 million Sales Tax hike, and he joined Ghiz in supporting David Pepper.
To further support his Democratic credentials, Jeff Berding made the following statement, "I take a backseat to no one in my commitment to Democratic values." Neither does Leslie Ghiz.
Remember, Leslie Ghiz supports tax-hiking Democrats. Chris Monzel supports Republicans. Leslie Ghiz for County Commissioner!
