Mrs. Lee Czerwonka donates to David Pepper
Dear fellow tax hikers, if there is one thing we love at Republicans for Higher Taxes, it is when our fellow Republicans donate to liberal Democrat David Pepper. While reviewing campaign finance reports, we were delighted to discover that local lawyer Christine Buttress, the wife of tax-and-spend Republican Blue Ash City Councilman Lee Czerwonka, recently donated $100 to proven tax-hiker David A. Pepper.
We applaud Mrs. Butthead for recognizing the importance of donating to proven tax-and-spend Democrats. With this donation the Republican Czerwonka family has donated $100 to Democrat David Pepper and $0 to his fiscally conservative Republican opponent Dave Yost. These are the kind of Republican values that make us proud.
We also cannot understate the contributions that Lee Czerwonka has made to the GOP tax-and-spend movement. When Blue Ash residents were being undertaxed, Lee stepped up to raise the income tax by 25%. When Bob Taft, Jean Schmidt, and Virgil Lovitt worked to raise Hamilton County's hotel/motel tax by over 100%, our man Lee proudly endorsed that effort. And when liberal Democrats David Pepper and Todd Portune implemented a big Sales Tax increase, Councilman Czerwonka supported this great tax hike and used his position with the Blue Ash Republican Club to promote it.
In addition to all these wonderful tax increases, Czerwonka has generously donated money to fellow tax-and-spend Republicans. In 2008, Lee donated $350 to our 2008 Tax Hiker of the Year Virgil Lovitt in his loser campaign for State Representative. Not to be outdone, Lee surpassed his own generosity by donating $500 to 2009 Tax Hiker of the Year Michelle Schneider for her unsuccessful run for the State Senate.
We salute Beavis and Buttress for everything they've done to promote the tax-and-spend way. The citizens of Blue Ash - no, make that all of Southwest Ohio - are lucky to be served by such quality tax-hikers. Let's show our support for higher taxes by doing what we can to promote the great tax hiker himself David A. Pepper. That's what Beavis and Buttress would want.
