Dear fellow tax hikers, we congratulate Rocky Boiman for being named the newest Green Township Trustee. Boiman was selected to replace our Tracy Winkler, who had to resign the seat to become Hamilton County Clerk of Courts. Those are some mighty big shoes that Rocky will be asked to fill.
We believe Rocky is firmly qualified for this position. He played football at St. X. He played football at Notre Dame. He played football in the NFL. His Political Action Committee, LEAD PAC, endorsed and donated to Democratic City Council candidate P.G. Sittenfeld as well as the liberal, pro-streetcar Deadbeat Democrat Jason Riveiro. We expect Rocky to get right to work keeping things as they are and protecting the patronage jobs of select Green Township families.
We applaud Green Township Trustees Tony Upton and David Linnenberg for moving expeditiously to select a qualified candidate for this opening. It only took them 5 days to accept Winkler's resignation, announce the opening, allow time for applications to come in, schedule the interviews, conduct the interviews, and make a final decision. That is the sign of a fair, open, and honest selection process that everyone can be proud of. Please join us in giving Rocky Boiman a warm welcome to our tax-hiking team.
