2009 Tax Hiking award winner to be named

Dear fellow tax hikers, the exhaustive process of naming our Tax Hiker of the Year has finally drawn to a conclusion. This Friday morning at 7:00 AM we will be naming our 2009 Tax Hiker of the Year in an exclusive, web-only release at this site. We promise you that we have found a winner for this prestigious award who will make our entire movement proud.

Before we name our new winner, we owe a deep debt of gratitude to our 2008 Tax Hiker of the Year Virgil Lovitt that we could never repay. Virg has taken his responsibility as a tax hiking leader extremely seriously. He has been a world-class ambassador for our site and has brought us more attention than we could have have ever expected from him. Virg continues to be a great tax hiking leader. We know that he will enjoy his final day as the reigning Tax Hiker of the Year before giving way to our new winner.

Perhaps our most enjoyable part of leading this tax-hiking movement is naming our Tax Hiker of the Year winner each year. This is one way that we get to honor the best our movement has to offer. We feel tremendous pride in honoring our best, and then seeing them continue go on raising taxes higher and higher and higher. We know that all you tax hikers will agree our 2009 winner meets our expectations in every way. Please come back Friday morning to meet our new winner. Tax us more!

I hope you youngsters name a woman this year! So many of us trailblazing women have been instrumental in bringing about the tax-hiking GOP movement that you lead today. We deserve some recognition.

I think we should name the award after Virgil Lovitt. We should make it an annual occurrence. The 2010 Virgil Lovitt Taxhiker of the year award goes to:

As I spend my final day as the reigning Tax Hiker of the Year, I joyfully reflect on all the great memories this award has given me. I have been truly blessed to be supported by such a fine group of tax hikers. You guys were the key to getting me to run for State Representative last year, and with your help I almost pulled it off.

I have strived to take my responsibility as a Tax Hiker of the Year as seriously as I could. I hope I have brought attention, respect, and more traffic to your site. Your movement is too important for it to fail. We tax hikers all have to work together to give us the highest taxes and biggest spending that we can.

Thank you all again for everything you've done for me. I look forward to working with each and every one of you to keep raising taxes and raising spending throughout Southwest Ohio.

You know, Virgil is a Greek name.

Without a doubt the proudest and most enthusiastic elected official supporters of higher taxes in our party are Bill Seitz, Virgil Lovitt, and Leslie Ghiz. I mean, ever since John Dowlin died.
