Paul Ryan to conduct town hall at YSU

By Ashley Luthern



U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, Republican vice-presidential candidate, will visit the Mahoning Valley for a town hall less than 48 hours after debating Vice President Joe Biden.

Ryan will lead the town hall Saturday at Kilcawley Center at Youngstown State University, said Mark Munroe, Mahoning County Republican Party chairman.

Doors open at 7:45 a.m., and the event is expected to start about 9:45. Tickets are required and available beginning at 9 a.m. today, Munroe said.

Tickets can be picked up in person at the Mahoning County Republican Party headquarters, 621 Boardman-Canfield Road, Boardman, and the GOP Victory Center in the Eastwood Mall, Niles, or reserved online at http://RyanTownHall.eventbrite.com.

Munroe said he did not know exactly how many tickets are available and urged those interested to reserve tickets early.

“It’s pretty remarkable that he’ll be arriving here just after the debate,” Munroe said.

Ryan and Biden will face off at 9 tonight during a debate at Centre College in Danville, Ky.

Ryan’s visit also comes in the same week that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Mitt Romney presidential surrogate, campaigned for the GOP ticket at Lordstown Village Park.

“We know it’s all about Ohio. Certainly what happens in the Mahoning Valley can affect what happens in Ohio and what happens in Ohio can affect what happens in the nation,” Munroe said.

Ryan visited the Valley in August when he campaigned at the Hot Dog Shoppe in Warren. Last month during an exclusive Vindicator interview, Ryan criticized President Barack Obama on the federal bailout of the American auto industry and the president’s energy policy, which Ryan claimed “is hostile to coal, to natural gas, to oil, to the Keystone Pipeline.”

Also in the interview, Ryan said he accepted the Republican vice presidential nomination because of “the lack of leadership. We had to turn this country around and get jobs created.”

Once again you can see the mind set of this valley, everyone believes what BO says and they call everyone else a liar. Well take a ride around this valley someday and see what the D party rule has done to it. RUINED IT! People ae afraid to leave their homes . But the narrowed minded people will keep voting them back in because they like living off the Gov't money that they receive and oh yeah their FREE cell phones that the working populace pays for.

He's not a graduate of Columbia University. He's not a graduate of Harvard. He wasn't selected as the President of the Harvard Law Review. He didn't get a special free quota scholarship ride to any prestigious university and, instead, had to work his way through Miami University of Ohio... the man drove the Oscar Mayer Wiener Truck one summer and waited tables another!

One morning when Paul Ryan was sixteen years old he went in to wake his father and found him dead of a heart attack. He didn't write two books about that experience. Instead, he assumed the role of adult at an early age, never having the luxury to pursue youthful drug use and the art of socialist revolution.

Instead, Paul Ryan and his mother took his grandmother, suffering from Alzheimer's, into the household and served as the primary care provider for his grandma. His grandma wasn't the Vice President of the Bank of Hawaii so she could offer nothing in return, except the element of "need".

Once Paul Ryan got his BA in Economics from Miami University of Ohio he was hired as a staff economist in Wisconsin Senator Kastin's office. The job must have not paid well because young Ryan moonlighted as a waiter and fitness trainer. No one offered him a "token honor" position at the University of Chicago and a $200,000 dollar a year salary.

When a still young Paul Ryan returned to Wisconsin to run for Congress, he didn't demonize his opponent and dig up dirt to shovel against him. He waited until the standing Congressman vacated the office before seeking the office. In Janesville, Wisconsin they don't have a big political machine to promote you, to criminalize your opponent; instead Paul Ryan had to go door to door and sit at kitchen tables and listen to his future constituents.

After getting elected to Congress, Paul Ryan didn't triumphantly march into Washington, buy himself a Georgetown townhouse and proceed over to K Street to rub elbows with lobbyists. He bunked in his Congressional office and used the house gym for showers and a fresh change of clothes.

Paul Ryan then married and took his bride back to Janesville. He lives on the same street he lived on as a kid and shares the neighborhood with eight other members of the Ryan clan. He hunts with the local Janesville hunt club and attends PTA meetings and other civic functions.

For those who can't make those public functions, Paul Ryan bought an old bread truck, converted it into a "mobile constituent office" and drives around to meet with those who need his help and attention.

No, I don't know if we can vote for a guy like this. He doesn't have a regal pedigree; he's Irish! No one awarded him a Nobel Peace Prize two months after getting elected. No one threw flowers or got "chills down their leg" as he took his seat in Congress.
