Gerberry to file for re-election

AUSTINTOWN — State Rep. Ronald V. Gerberry, D-59th, will file nominating petitions Friday to run for re-election for his last two-year term.

Gerberry of Austintown served in the Ohio House from 1982 to 2001 and then served as Mahoning County recorder from 2001 until he resigned in April 2007 to return to the state House to finish the unexpired term of then-state Rep. Kenneth A. Carano.

Gerberry was elected to a two-year term in 2008, and re-elected in 2010 and 2012. If re-elected this year, Gerberry couldn’t run in 2016 as the state’s term-limit law, approved in 1992, doesn’t permit him to run for a fifth consecutive two-year term.

Ron has spent 31 years in government jobs. Other than helping with the new Racino in Austintown, what else has he really accomplished? Well, he picked up a government check during that time and probably built up a hell of a pension. Please go away Ron and take your buddy Bobby Hagen with you.
I am sure some liberal lobby will put you and Bob
on a payroll. Maybe you and Bob can do some consulting work. You guys are perfect…..you know nothing and you ask a lot of questions….thats the joke in Private Industry about consultants!!!!
Of course, u 2 guys never spent a day in private industry. Sorry, Bob was a gandy dancer for the RR.
So u don't have to go to Webster's dictionary….
A gandy dancer is a person who drives spikes on the
RR. Again, please go away

Let us mourn a completely unforgettable career of Gerberry. He really hit his stride when fighting for Nitro's law. He has accomplished less in a lengthy career on the public trough than perhaps any other than Bob Hagan. But then again Hagan has his wife running for his spot so the Hagans can continue to milk the public.

Please if you are a Gerberry supporter please list a bill that he was the originator of that passed and what did that bill accomplish. For years he would gladly tell people that he could not get anything done because he was in the minority.

Now Hagan and Gerberry sign a letter thanking Betras for never helping the public out with recruiting an effective candidate.

Please Gerberry don't tell us you will have your wife run next year! Just retire and leave.

Good point MLC75. But it is not like we have had much of a choice. Maybe the job really doesn't matter and that's why we don't have qualified people running. I apologize. We should not blame Gerberry and Hagan for their irrelevance, it s actually institutional. Who really cares if we are represented in Columbus. I'm serious. View it like a social welfare program for small groups like the Hagans and Gerberries that would find it hard to get a job otherwise. With Hagan he wants his wife to run to array the socialist banner forward, I.e have other people pay to continue the family receiving a paycheck.

Someone once offered an explanation for the poor state of things in the valley:

"The voters are stuck on stupid."

They repeatedly reelect Democrats.

jrolley - sounds like you have reverse racist tone going on.
By the way, u missed Texas, Georgia, South Carolina,
Virginia, Florida, and Louisiana. I travel these states on business monthly, and they all are very prosperous states. In my business, plants that build Freight and Tank Cars have, over the last 20 years, closed facilities in the following: Pa: Butler, Berwick, Greenville and Holidaysburg. Ohio: Mt Orab and Kenton. ILL: Chicago Heights, Clinton, and East Chicago Indiana. By the way,
East Chicago was a Warren Buffett decision when he purchased Union Tank Car. Huntington W. Virginia...North of the Mason Dickson went from 80% of the business to zero% . Question: where did that business end up? I will give you a little help, Jimmy, try….Texas, Arkansas, oh yea Alabama, yes
Louisiana and that hole in the wall, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia. ur barking up the wrong tree

if you want to label the poorest states in the country as prosperous, then we're las vegas compared to them.

I wonder if his wife will run next just like his buddy Hagan. Might as well keep the feeding trough in the family Ron!
