Dan Troy Running Again…Power is very intoxicating

From Dan Troy’s Facebook page:

Daniel P. Troy today announced his candidacy for the office of State Representative for the 60th District in western Lake County.

The former Lake County Commissioner, State Representative, and Willowick City Council President will be running for the open seat currently held by John Rogers (who is term limited) in 2020.

(LFC Comments: We should have guessed that Troy was going to run for Rogers’ Rep. position when we saw them at this year’s Mentor Headland’s parade.  That seems to be a “coming out party” for local politicians – they get to mingle with the little people. (Commissioner Jerry Cirino and Jason Wuliger (Commisioner in training) have also used this parade to get some face time in front of the voters.)

(LFC Comments:  We could not help smiling when we read the platform that Mr. Troy will use to win in 2020.  We have been speaking about this problem for over two years.  Troy will use this to get elected in 2020.  It is really unfortunate that the Republicans have NOT seen fit to fight for seniors.  We predict that they will pay the price at the ballot box in 2020.  However, please remember both parties have been trading the political positions for years, and keep trotting out the same old horses out of their barn. Name recognition is key in politics.)

Troy’s Platform:
“The former Ohio House Ways and Means Chairman believes it is time to promote significant changes in Ohio’s property tax system to not only make it more understandable, but also fairer to those living on fixed incomes.

He also wants to reverse the disintegration of the state’s fiscal partnership with local government entities – schools, cities, counties, libraries, etc. – that has resulted in local taxpayers facing a plethora of increased or new property tax levies to offset these state cuts.

As our senior citizen population in Lake County and Ohio rapidly increases, Troy believes that we must not only reduce their property tax burden, but also protect them from the explosion of telephone scams and sordid practices that attempt to separate them from their money.”

(LFC Comments:  All we can say to Mr. Troy is “WELCOME TO THE PARTY, PAL – BETTER LATE THAN NEVER”…it is truly unfortunate that we cannot get Jamie Callender (State Rep. District 61) to get on the bandwagon to help seniors.

Hey, Dan….can we send you an invoice for creating that platform for you?  Wonder what platform good ole Jerry will be using for his State Senate seat?)

  1. The people are waking up to the way the cabal operates at all levels of government…it’s been ONE party for a very long time…right wing/left wing…same dirty bird! Everything has been done to ensure that the establishment types stay in office…and the politicians who have sold their soul in some way or another are only too happy to continue to be the whores they are…because they are aging and they ALL want those great bennies…those Cadillac health plans funded by the taxpayer. PERS includes health care…so when they and their complicit staff “retire” they not only get their pension but also medical is pretty much taken care of too…all at our expense.

    What did Troy do for the taxpayer or senior when he was sitting pretty for all those years as a Lake County Commissioner? Did he fix the illegal payment of Port Authority operating expenses (coastal manager’s salary)? Where in the hell is that missing $42K that your group uncovered? And what about Troy threatening to withhold funds from the Port Authority if they didn’t move their meeting from Rider’s Inn over a POLITICAL SIGN, which as you pointed out with the U.S. Supreme Court case, is ILLEGAL?

    So Mr. Troy will threatening funding of the port authority over a political sign but continue to allow the illegal use of lodging tax funds to pay port authority operating expenses? Swell.

    All of these things, and more, have been brought to the attention of the current commissioners. They were elected to drain the swamp in Lake County and THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING. Are they not bound by law to begin investigations into illegal matters? Do they not have a duty to investigate the fiduciary nonfeasance of the Port Authority Board for not preparing a budget for the Better Flip which was clearly proven by your group? They continue to give our tax dollars to at least 2 lawless entities, the port authority and the visitors bureau. Rogers voted NO on a bill that would have made property tax levy ballot language more understandable to the voter.

    The entire bunch running our local and state government on both sides of the aisle for the past couple of decades is no better than the lawless traitors at the federal level. It’s time for ALL of these parasites to go and never come back! They must be exiled from public service permanently. These jerks are NOT public servants. They never were.
