Columbiana GOP chairman sees ‘first’

SUMMITVILLE

David Johnson, chairman of the Columbiana County Republican Party, said he has a first.

“I’m very pleased that for the first time in my life, I could vote for a Republican congressman that won,” he said Thursday.

He was referring to the win by Bill Johnson, who now represents the 6th Ohio Congressional District, which includes Columbiana County. The two are not related.

The last time a Republican congressman candidate won in this area of Ohio, “was way back in the 1920s,” David Johnson said.

David Johnson said he was even more pleased to see the congressman plans to open an office in Salem, possibly as early as next month.

The office will be in a building at the northeast corner of East State Street and North Ellsworth Avenue.

David Johnson said no one could recall any major federal officials’ having an office in the district.

Democrat Charlie Wilson, Ohio’s former 6th District’s Representative, had an office in Boardman, but David Johnson said the new congressman wanted the office in Salem.

David Johnson said, “I expect I will be an adviser in his kitchen cabinet.”

He also said that when it comes to helping the district locally, party affiliation doesn’t matter.

“It’s a case of ‘check your politics at the door,’” the GOP chairman said.

Dennis Johnson, the Democrat Party chairman, agreed. David Johnson said it’s common knowledge the two chairmen help each other to help the county. The two are not related.

The new congressman is expected to be one of the speakers in Salem in early May during a program by the Salem Area Industrial Development Corp. The Republican chairman is the chief executive officer of Summitville Tile.

Suck up Dave Johnson since that's what your good at ! Maybe he help you get those kills removed from your Summitville, Ohio plant ! I know your sucking up to Tracy Drake of Columbiana County. Port Authority for the money to remove those asbestos kills after making a profit on them for years. I guess your profit is for you and you only ! While you ask the Tax payer for money for removal of said kills. Socialism Johnson !!! As for the other Johnson named Bill the reason why he is putting a office in Salem,Ohio is because of Republicans are closer to him. He no different than Wilson. I called his office to repeal The Prescription Drug plan that was forced on us by Bush or be penalized by the Government . Another Socialism / Communist way. And who's doing it ? Right you are the REPUBLICANS !

timOthy, you want the Bush drug program repealed because it was forced on us. I'm guessing you are not against the Obama health care plan which is being forced on us. There is no penalty for not using the prescription plan of Bush while there are stiff penalties for not abiding with the Obama bin laden health care bill.
