Dear fellow tax hikers, we are sure you have heard the great news that Tracy Winkler was officially selected by the Hamilton County Republican Party's insider screening committee to be our next Clerk of Courts. This is no surprise to you loyal readers, as we announced on Tuesday night that the screening committee had already selected Winkler in advance of their Wednesday meeting.
Winkler earned this selection. Winkler hired Alex Triantafilou's wife for a township position that she was completely unqualified for to do a favor for the party boss. Now she is collecting on that favor. In addition, Tracy married into the Winkler family. That alone gives her special privileges that she is exploiting to her full advantage.
This is how politics works - you sell out your integrity for the party boss, and he will sell out his integrity for you. Things like serving the citizens, saving taxpayer money, and good government don't matter. It's about getting what yours. We applaud the Winkler and Triantafilou families for showing us what is important.
