Dear fellow tax hikers, it is a matter of extreme importance that we stop citizen activist Jeffry Smith from getting elected Green Township Trustee. Mr. Smith's advocacy for good government and against nepotism is unacceptable and has caused much discomfort for the elite ruling class of this fine township. Mr. Smith's crimes against our allies in the tax-and-spend movement are severe and disqualify him from serving the public.
1) Jeffry Smith is the peasant who uncovered the truth behind the hiring of Jennifer Triantafilou for a job she's completely unqualified to hold, and in fact did not apply for until nearly 2 weeks after the application deadline. Mr. Smith compiled the public documents and posted them on his site to show her lack of qualifications and the political reasons behind the hire. The Green Township Trustees bypassed many qualified candidates to hire the wife of Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman Alex Triantafilou in order to gain political favor down the road. We at Republicans for Higher Taxes think there is nothing wrong with hiring well-connected political wives for jobs they aren't capable of performing.
2) Smith discovered that the Nathanael Greene Lodge has been losing an average of $200,000 per year. This lodge is co-run by Allison Detzel, who happens to be the daughter of Trustee Tracy Winkler. Smith thinks something is wrong with this. We don't have any problem with hiring an elected official's daughter to lose a ton of money for the Township.
3) We are especially disappointed that Smith has criticized the Trustees for shutting down public comments at their Township meetings. Why would any elected official care what regular citizens have to say about their government? The Green Township Trustees sure don't care. Smith should apologize for insisting that he and his fellow citizens have a right to be heard at their local government meetings.
Do you want a representative who lets you speak at government meetings? Then don't vote for Smith. Do you have a problem with Trustees hiring their children to lose taxpayer money? Then don't vote for Smith, he'll hire someone who can do the job. Do you support hiring the Party Chairman's wife for a job she's incapable of performing? Then don't vote for Smith, he'll hire qualified personnel instead.
Whatever you do, don't vote for Jeffry Smith. There are too many relatives of political officials whose patronage jobs depend on it.
