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.

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.

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