RNLC Newsletter: Issue 3

Republicans for a New Lucas County Newsletter: Issue 3

Fellow Republicans,
After the municipal elections last week, the Republicans for a New Lucas County PAC would like to extend a warm congratulations to all of the victorious Republicans around Lucas County. The RNLC looks forward to working with, assisting, and fighting for Republicans in the near future. With some key victories, Republicans are seeing the potential for future success at the polls.
With Election Day behind us, the RNLC is now shifting all gears towards the future. Together, there is no limit on the elections that Republicans in this county can win, and on the good that can be brought from it.
While we had some Republicans success this past Tuesday, we can do even better. I will continue to share my vision to help bring change to the way the county party operates. Some of my ideas are included in the previous RNLC newsletter. To read it, click here.
Republicans across this county can build on the successes that we saw Tuesday, to bring even more conservatives into local government. This, however, takes a group effort. If you are interested in helping the RNLC change Lucas County for the better, please consider joining the campaign or making a donation.
Finally, this past week Republicans across Lucas County and Ohio lost a great friend in Daniel Eisinger. Dan, 41, was a campaign aid for over twenty Republican races, most recently as a top aid on both Tom Waniewski’s mayoral run and Mark Wagoner’s current race for County Party Chairman. Dan loved politics and was a well versed campaign aid, but most importantly, was a great friend to all and mentor to young people trying to get involved in their community. The RNLC is deeply saddened by this loss, and extends its most heartfelt condolences to Dan’s friends and family. A memorial will be held for Dan at the Maumee Senior Center Thursday, November 16th at 6:30 PM.
Yours in future Republican success,
Mark Wagoner

Dan Hazard Wins in Hotly Contested Maumee Race

Maumee City Councilman Daniel Hazard pulled off a major feat on Election Day, defeating Maumee Municipal Judge Gary Byers. Judge Byers served for more than 20 years, and Hazard looks to bring a fresh thought process to the municipal courts. According to Hazard, this will include a performance audit and automation to certain procedures. The race was highlighted by a growing deficit in Maumee’s court system, more than $800,000, a deficit Hazard hopes to bring down. Regarding the race, he told the Toledo Blade “I went back and looked at my calendar and how many days I walked. I figured that I knocked on close to 2,500 doors. In addition to that, my family knocked on about 10,000 doors. We went right to the people with our message.”

Ms. Khoury belives that she can bring a different perspective to Toledo’s municipal courts, telling the Toledo Blade “I am going to bring a different perspective that municipal court hasn’t had in a long time. There has not been a public defender and criminal defense lawyer to take the bench in many years.”
