I am pleased to report that former State Representative and current candidate for United States Representative, Jim Trakas, will make an appearance in Hamilton County for an important fundraising event on Monday, June 30th, 2008 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Queen City Club.
Jim Trakas is running to unseat Dennis Kucinich in the Ohio 10th District. Dennis Kucinich is nationally known as the left-wing loon that has run for President a couple of times. His sighting of a UFO is the most recent story that has brought his mental health into question. (click here to read the story). Dennis Kucinich does not serve the citizens of the 10th District and his radical voting record puts him outside the mainstream of American politics. His antics have hurt his District, Ohio, and the nation.
More importantly, Jim Trakas is a fine candidate and a great Republican. Jim has served as a State Representative and as Chairman of the Cuyahoga County Republican Party. He brings a record of achievement that is unmatched in his race. To learn more about Jim and his vision, visit his website at http://www.jimtrakas.org/.
Finally, Jim Trakas is "a good Greek boy." I couldn't blog without mentioning that Jim and I share a common heritage and religion and I'm very pleased that he is coming to our region. Like the character in the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" said, "there are two kinds of people: those that are Greek and those that want to be Greek."
If you want to help us on this important event and help Jim beat Dennis Kucinich, call Republican Headquarters at 513-381-5454.
