Your state representative was recently in Indianapolis for a meeting about a remotely possible political usurping of the U.S. Constitution. This isn’t what you signed him up to do at the culmination of his eight years as state representative for 106,000 Allen County residents.

You expected him to bring jobs and prosperity to Allen County, the prized 4th Representative District of Ohio.

Your state representative was in such a safe seat that he solely sponsored some State House bills that went against most of Allen Counties best interest. A Union busting bill, SB5, was defeated 67 perceent to 33 percent even in Allen County, in his feeble attempt to stop collective bargaining for state workers, including Teachers. He was also prompted to attempt another bill that would awash the State of Ohio with Vouchers for private Charter Schools. Then the Coup De Ta was the gerrymandered Ohio Congressional Districts that divided up our local 4th Congressional District into a massive expanse of desired territory that goes from St. Marys Lake to Lake Erie.

Your state representative should be more attentive to the Districts needs and not obediently sign a Grover Norquist Pledge or obediently attempted to pass any and all bills the American Legislative Exchange Council has endorsed. When we choose a new state representative this November 4th, the amount of political experience of a candidate should make you weary of their “been there, done that and got the T-shirt” mentality. Think twice about choosing another one, just like the other one, is a little preemptive advice I can give you.

When you have that five minutes in the voting booth, think of what you have told your family and friends about the ideal candidate. Bo Huenke can fit that mold and be a “Lobbyist Nightmare.” I am not swayed by the lure of status, esteem or prestige. Bo Huenke is his own man and I will navigate the halls of the State House with the help of a Caucus that can be described as heroes of the Middle Class. Pencil in a new governor and a new cabinet too. Ohio has just been fleeced by a governor who was a Wall Street banker.

Bo Huenke, Elida, candidate for state representative
