Recently Senator Jones saw her bill to reform collective bargaining pass the Ohio Senate. We strongly opposed this bill because we want the unions, not elected officials, deciding how to spend taxpayer dollars. Our Michelle Schneider never would have written this bill! She probably wouldn't have even voted for it. Michelle would be raising taxes right now, not reforming collective bargaining.
So we are very proud of our Michelle for taking the opportunity to criticize Shannon Jones in The Enquirer's first article about her since the bill's passage.
Tempted by the prospect of an open state Senate seat, Jones elbowed her way past her political mentor and Columbus roommate, former Rep. Michelle Schneider of Madeira, despite what Schneider insists were Jones' repeated assurances to "never, never run against" her.
"She stabbed me in the back," Schneider said. "Some friend."
We are proud of Michelle Schneider's bitterness. She should be bitter. We are bitter. All you tax hikers should be bitter too. You'll really be bitter when Shannon's efforts keep our taxes from being raised.
This was Michelle Schneider's seat. She was entitled to get the Senate appointment. She was entitled to run unopposed in the Republican Primary. She was entitled to run unopposed in the general election. Shannon Jones had no right to run for and win this seat. And the voters had no right to deny Michelle what was hers. Shame on a system that would allow this injustice to happen.
