2017 Meet the Candidates Night

Kuhn & Weisgerber Legal Cases

PAC members and supporters are complaining because I vetted Barry Kuhn and Rob Weisgerber, who both have legal items on the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts websites. Please go to the following website: https://neighborsforloveland.org/articles-%26-editorials  to see the editorial by a PAC supporter.

 

Halie,

You are correct. 

Due to a divorce, and a job loss, I have also had financial difficulties. I was a single parent without outside financial support in raising my two daughters. It is important to note that 99% of those cases were dismissed, and I paid all of my debts in full.  I had also elected to take the high road, and maintain my focus on the issues and not the individuals. I'll continue down that path, and it is unfortunate  that the LCHPAC has decided to change their stance, and now go after individuals. I know a great many of individuals that have contributed to the PAC, and count them as my friends. I think that they would be disappointed in the change in the LCHPAC's approach. I would also hope that the candidates that the LCHPAC supports would also not endorse this approach.


Tim,

Feel free to cite court cases on your website. I have stated previously that my life is an open book. I have nothing to hide, and proud of myself for fighting the challenges that I faced during that time period. I have been encouraging residents to research each candidate on their own merits, and this public information has been available to them already.

Thanks.


For the record: I spoke to Barry after vetting all candidates on various different clerk of courts websites. After discussing the issues in his file, I discovered the issues were due to a divorce and the loss of a job. Similar to Rob Weisgerber's lawsuits these issues were not pertinent to the position of a council person. Neither Barry or Rob have had legal issues that have effected tax payers of Loveland. 

Neal Oury has as recent as 2013.


Does a 20+ Year Veteran Deserve Re-election?

As editor of Lovelandtruth.com I cannot answer this question. Only the voting residents of Loveland will make that decision on Tuesday.


I have provided the FACTS pertaining to events that have happened in our city over the last 10 years. I have verified all the facts on my own and at my own expense. I am not a PAC.


I took on this responsibility because I have passion for a city that has fed, clothed and provided the basis for my family's lifestyle and success since 1965.


Thank you Loveland for your support!


The TRUTH is ALWAYS most important!
