Troy Balderson is fastidiously avoiding the media and interaction with voters in the lead-up to the August 7th Special Election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District. In that sense, it’s starting to look like a repeat of the Pennsylvania election of Democrat Conor Lamb.Full Story... →
Nelsonville City Councilman and 94th District State Representative Candidate Taylor Sappington announced on social media that he will not accept money from corporations or billionaires.
“I refuse to accept any corporate money into my campaign,” says Sappington. “…it is unethical and is corrosive to our democracy to take corporate money and then turn around and tell the people that you actually stand for them. Folks down here can and should see right through that type of dishonesty.”
The 94th House District is comprised of Meigs County, and parts of Athens, Washington and Vinton Counties. And fitting for […]Full Story... →
The fight for the special election in House District 12 to replace Rep. Pat Tiberi has seen its fair share of attack ads. This is especially true from Republican candidate Troy Balderson. Attack ads seem to be all the craze these days, so I think I can speak for all of us when I say that ads highlighting a candidate’s leadership abilities are refreshing.

State Rep Andy Brenner is so desperate not to have to give back his contributions from the scandal-plagued founder of ECOT, he’s claiming he didn’t take them. (He did).Full Story... →
As the ECOT debacle plays out, it becomes evident that politics gave it life, but now politics is exposing its corruption and thus its shame and destruction.
While the ECOT Man was on the rags-to-riches trajectory, certain state officials, who were immersed in ECOT campaign funds, protected the ECOT business enterprise. ECOT has never been focused on education. Profit has been the objective and when ECOT was caught cheating taxpayers, it went out-of-business not because it was among the worst performing “schools” in the history of the United States, but because it was no longer a profitable business.
