… Our Quality of Life Issues do Matter [#my hometown]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 2nd,2015

.. I know from my hometown of Lakewood , Ohio ..

.. Lakewood is a city of 54,00 , nestled right next to Cleveland along the shores of lake Erie . It is only 4.8 square miles in size , so it is densly populated . Also , there is little to no industry . But it is a very prime place for people that want to live there ..

.. there is little to no tolerance for the quality of life crimes that NYC is now tolerating . If somebody even thought of trying to pull such a stunt , they would either get a stiff ticket , or , more likely , they would be thrown in jail ..

.. the city services are fantastic , especially the schools . However , those services come at a price . The property taxes are extremely high , higher than anywhere else in the county [Cuyahoga Cty , to wit] other than a very chi – chi suburb on the east side of town ..

.. but the people of my hometown expect a lot . They desire a high quality of life , and do pay for it through the nose . Thankfully , throughout much change in the city in the last 50 years , the quality of life has generally remained high …

.. this has not been a fun week for Cuyahoga County executive Ed Fitzgerald …

.. Who ? …

.. [link] to the news blog / cartoon ..

.. I am originally from Lakewood , Ohio . I am also a proud graduate of Lakewood High School , Class of 1983 . Fitz was once the mayor of my hometown of Lakewood . He cut that time short when he ran for and won election as Cuyahoga County ‘ s first Executive …

.. apparently , during that time , or much of it , dumb – dumb Fitz did not have a permanent driver license . He was on Lakewood ‘ s City Council when he let his license lapse in 2002 . Stoopid ! …

.. worse , the news came out that two years ago , dumb – dumb was caught in an indiscretion . There was a trade mission that came to Greater Cleveland . One of the delegates was a woman [a legally licensed driver in her home country of Ireland]. Mr. Stupid was caught in a manufacturer ‘ s parking lot , at 4:30am in the morning , of all things , with this lady , when a nearby worker called the police . No , he was not arrested . But , he took her home , and then drove home .. Without a regular driver license . Big Whoops …

.. One of the agencies that the Governor of Ohio is responsible for is the Department of Public Safety . One of those departments that it runs is the Bureau of Motor Vehicles . This agency deals with the issuing of , among other things , driver licenses . Stoopid …

.. now , this …. Fitz writes a publically issued letter about his son ‘ s cancer is still in remission . All in the same week . Why ? …

.. Well , whatever chance this idiot had of winning the Ohio Governor ‘ s race is now G – O – N – E !!!! …

.. — note — the cartoonist [for the Cleveland Plain Dealer] , Jeff Darcy , is a well – known leftie … you can tell how far Fitz has sank when Darcy is picking on him …
