We will definitely be voting for DOUG RITZ, DISTRICT ONE COMMISSIONER come primary day, August 5th. He's a good man trying his best to help straighten out the mess that Elk County was in with the previous board of commissioners!

VOTE FOR RITZ !!                                                   VOTE FOR RITZ !!                                              VOTE FOR RITZ !!

VOTE FOR RITZ !!                                                   VOTE FOR RITZ !!                                              VOTE FOR RITZ !!

Yea for you guys!

Sure Mr. Ritz gets a bit boisterous occasionally, but I prefer to call it being passionate about Elk County and Elk County Government. Along with that passion comes honesty, which I find very valuable.

What I fear, is if he loses we end up with another Elk Konnected Kounty Kommissioners Kontroled Board and  money flying out of the County Coffers for special interests benefit. And the very likely loss of our property tax relief. 

So, Yea  for you guys, caring about Elk County.

I agree with your post I just copied and pasted here:
VOTE FOR RITZ !!                                                   VOTE FOR RITZ !!                                              VOTE FOR RITZ !!
I'd like to add, Let's keep things in
Elk County on it's positive track!
Obama has proven that change
is not necessarily a good thing!
And in this case, I believe change
could be
very bad for Elk County.
Just go back and re-read this thread
about that changey stuff
that was attempted and
failed
to accomplish anything and
perhaps was detrimental to Elk County.

I went to Longton this morning for the Longton Free Fair Parade , which was fun.

I hug around for the Elk County Farm Bureau sponsored Political Forum.
I listened to the opening 2 minute speeches from the candidates.

Mr. Ritz stated he made some notes to read from because he was nervous in front of a crowd. He stated because, he is not a politician. I agree with him, he was as nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof. I can relate to that.

Mr. Ritz has been very good for Elk County, both he and Mr. Hebb. By the way neither one is Elk Konnected.

With the two of them working together county property taxes have been lowered,  employee relations with-in the county have improved. Yes, I have spoke with several of the employees.

Neither one of these Commissioners promise anything except to try to make improvements as time goes by. Neither Commissioner has ties to any special interest groups, this is a big plus for Elk County.

They are working on getting several hundred thousand dollars from FEMA for road repairs.

The other candidate Ms. Kaminska came out sounding just like Elk Konnected. She want to use the Wind Farm money for other things, like Economic Development for the store owers ---- and who know for what else. As if the store owners don’t already make a profit off of us! If Kaminska wins you might as well kiss your property tax break, provided by the Wind Farm money good-by. We have had a paid Economic Development Employee, a very expensive position and it accomplished nothing for all the money thrown at the position. They didn’t even suggest starting an industrial park in Elk County. Do we want to pay someone, once again to do nothing or to perhaps act as a spy for lord who know who? And do we want to pay higher property taxes for such a person?

If Kaminska wins property taxes will most likely go up and not just the ten percent savings from the wind farm money!

Why?

I believe we will have two liberal Konnected Kounty Kommissioners once again. Remember how they voted to give recreation money to Elk Konnected, while the communities did without? If you get two Konnected Kounty Kommissioners again they will most likely remove the recreation funds from the communities and keep it in the county coffers, so they can operate as before.

Kaminska said she graduate high school here and left like so many others, she was gone for 25 years, 25 years gone! So she didn’t care for 25 years, that the population was declining did she? But now, all of a sudden she cares and she can fix it. ROFLMAO.
 
I like these people that say I was born and raised here , I graduated high school here, as if it means something and then they abandon the area for twenty five years and suddenly have all the answers for fixing things, don’t you like it?

She spoke of the declining population  ---  nothing new there.
But she spoke of getting industry to come to Elk County to provide jobs for people!
What people, we have a declining population. Where is any kind of substantial industry gonna find employees?

She didn’t say where this industry is going to come from, or how she would get them to come here. By the way do we have an industrial park for industry to move to?

She spoke of these things as if she could get it done, but like a good politician, failed to explain how any of it could be done.

When they got to the question of how to continue funding education! She spoke of new and better buildings and gymnasiums. Huh! She spoke of the recent ballot concerning construction at West Elk and how it failed as if it was a bad attitude of the taxpayers.
That is the impression I received. But folks, West Elk is not even in Elk County District One, is she confused about which district is which? Oh no, she isn’t! West Elk has several Elk Konnected School Board Members ---- can you see the KONNECTION ?

Before you vote for someone else over the honest Mr. Ritz who has no affiliation to Elk Konnected please go back and read the hair brained ideas on page one of this thread and remember the attempts to have control over th wind farm moneys, please.

Sure, I live in district 3, however a wrong vote in district 1 will have equally adverse effects in my district and in district 2 as well.


Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please
 

Don’t make Elk County a loser!

For the sake of everyone in Elk County

VOTE FOR
Mr. RITZ

Keep an honest man on the County Board.

There is not a single person out there that will challenge what I am posting, because it is the truth.

Ross, I'm not going to challenge you on what you have posted, because I was there too and if i'm not mistaken, you might've left a little bit too early.  You did fail to mention that Ms. Kaminska and her boyfriend seemed to have gotten a little bent out of shape when it was the public's turn to ask questions. Elk Konnected seemed to pour out of the sweat ducts when questions were actually asked of her. And I don't believe anybody there wanted to take their questions one on one in private with her. Kinda sounds like an old Elk Konnected strategy or a Charlie Rich song: "no one knows what goes on behind closed doors." Anyway, it seems to me that Mr. Cannon was upset enough, looked like he wanted to start a fight in the parking lot, not a rumor, several people witnessed it. If you can't handle questions put towards you now, before you're a county commissioner, how the hell are you gonna be able to handle it if you were to ever win? My vote still goes for Mr. Ritz. I know how screwed up things were before he got in there; I know he has turned this county around and got it headed back in the right direction. I am sure as hell not ready to turn back around and go back to the old ways and same old broken socialistic policies with Elk Konnected running the show from behind the scenes. Can anyone say RINO??---- Mr. Robert Walker

VOTE FOR DOUG RITZ, COUNTY COMMISSIONER, DISTRICT 1
ROBERT AND JENNIFER WALKER

YOU CALL US HILLBILLYS LIKE THAT'S A BAD THING! WE ARE SO FLATTERED!

THAT'S MS. HILLBILLY TO YOU!

You are right I did leave a little early so did other people. I understood we were not going to be allowed to ask questions. So when I heard enough, which was at the very beginning, when Kamiska spewed Elk Konnected rhetoric I still hung around a little bit.

I wish i could have seen the rest, but I had out of town guest coming and had to leave.

Kshillbillys, I was trying to be as polite as I could in my previous post and it trust me it wasn't easy.

I believe we have a very honest and caring incumbent and we would simply be foolish to vote him out of office. That's not to say I agree with everything that big galoot does or says, I'm just saying I trust him to do the right thing and also I trust he will not be involved with any NGO's that are seeking power.

I am usually very skeptical of politicians, but as Mr. Ritz said he is not a politician.

You know how to tell when a politician is lying? Their lips are moving.

Mr. Ritz was limited in what he said and was on point. Unlike long winded politicians.

A Vote for Mr. Ritz is a vote for Elk County!
Don't settle for B. S. with no explantion on how it is going to work.

You did fail to mention that Ms. Kaminska and her boyfriend seemed to have gotten a little bent out of shape when it was the public's turn to ask questions. Elk Konnected seemed to pour out of the sweat ducts when questions were actually asked of her.

Dog gone it, I missed the good stuff. The honesty came out loud and clear. Her opening 2 minute speech just reeked of Elk Konnected, She wants to work miracles with the wind farm monies for the merchants. She wants to bring industry to Elk County with that money. My question is, where would industry find employees? Elk Konnected people that confronted me on this thread, were refering to me as an outsider, like they don’t ike outsiders. So where would industry find enough empoyees? Where would industry set up in Elk County? We don’t have an industrial park, do we? Industry would be better served in Independence or Winfileds Industrial park wouldn’t they? Pipe dreams with no substance are not an election option in my opinion.

She wants to bring jobs for the people. My questionis what people? We have a declining population don’t we? I suppose she could split the waters with her staff, right? Mre pipe dreams and no substance. Wil the Dstrict One voters buy it?

And I heard she wants another Economic Development and Youth Development Employee for $40,000 a year plus benefits! It didn’t work before, it won’t work now. And I guess with an Elk Konnected Kounty Kommissioners panel they would change the rule book that does not allow previous employees to be rehired to read just the opposite and re-hire the previous spying employee? Don’t you see that happening? Pipe Dreams!

And I don't believe anybody there wanted to take their questions one on one in private with her.

People asked me here on this forum,why I didn’t have a one on one in private with the Konnected Kounty Kommissioner Hendricks and I replied,that I did not trust being alone with her. Boy talk about the trouble that could have came out of that one,for me! No thank you ! If you can not trust some one a private one on one could be very dangerous for you. So, don’t go there. Don't be stupid.

Even Kommunity Konversations were not Commuity Conversations but were very carefully controlled three ring circuses.  Those foldk did not like being in full control of every step of the circus.

Kinda sounds like an old Elk Konnected strategy or a Charlie Rich song: "no one knows what goes on behind closed doors."

We have heard that tune plenty of times on this thread haven’t we.

Anyway, it seems to me that Mr. Cannon was upset enough, looked like he wanted to start a fight in the parking lot, not a rumor, several people witnessed it.

What? Is this Chicago now?
Are we going to have Chicago style politics in Elk County?
Just consider what County Commissioner Meetings might be like with a constant threat in the back ground! Is that what we want in our local government.

I’d prefer an honest person like Mr. Ritz. But, alas I can’t vote for him!
I am not in his district, but who ever wins will affect all three districts.

 
If you can't handle questions put towards you now, before you're a county commissioner, how the hell are you gonna be able to handle it if you were to ever win?

You can’t!


My vote still goes for Mr. Ritz. I know how screwed up things were before he got in there; I know he has turned this county around and got it headed back in the right direction. I am sure as hell not ready to turn back around and go back to the old ways and same old broken socialistic policies with Elk Konnected running the show from behind the scenes. Can anyone say RINO??---- Mr. Robert Walker

I have spoke with county employees that have told me that all the departments are working together these days. Now, that’s a formidable accomplishment and speaks highly of both Commissioners Hebb and Ritz.

VOTE FOR DOUG RITZ, COUNTY COMMISSIONER, DISTRICT 1

I am waiting anxiously for the voting results
to see if District ONE voters
vote SMART!

What?

Don't any of you Elk Konnected People have the slightest good thing to say about Ms. Kaminska ?

I guess that says it all, doesn't it folks?

Mr. Ritz should win hands down, any way I hope so for the sake of Elk County.

I hope every one can make it to the pole to vote for Mr. Ritz.
 
If you need a ride PM me and I will gladly pick you up and take you back home.

I don't care who you vote for (well I do) but that's your buisness. Don't tell me, the ride is still free.
