Democrats at Saturday's Holiday Party were treated to a first time visitor and speaker, Senator Joe Schiavoni, who told Democrats that we have to talk about issues that directly affect local voters and convey our message in clear and understandable terms. 

    The one and only William O'Neill, Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court, also spoke at the Holiday Party and lifted our spirits with his inspirational message of being elected to the Court after losing twice for Congress. Bill spent less than $4000 in that race against an opponent who spent 1.6 million. Very impressive.
