Appointee David Joyce from the 14th U.S. Congressional District, is facing his first election. He would like your vote.
What he isn't talking about is all the Geauga taxpayer money he and selected staff in the Prosecutor's Office frivolously spent to violate Ohio Revised Code to destroy the rights of local property owners.
Two of these situations involved farms in Auburn Township. Mr. Joyce, rather than advising his staff not to uphold ORC 519.21, refused to negotiate at all with the farmers to avoid expenditure of taxpayer money.
At an alleged cost of about $1 million each of taxpayer funds, these cases forced both farmers to pursue justice at the Eleventh District Court of Appeals. Eleventh District reversed the local court both times to restore the Ohio Constitution.
Both Auburn farmers, though participants in the state-administered CAUV program upheld by the Geauga
County Auditor's Office, were told by the Geauga Prosecutor Office that they were not farms. In one of these cases, county taxpayers underwrote the cost of the Prosecutor's unsuccessful appeal of the Eleventh District Cout of Appeals to the Supreme Court.
Both cases, 09M000646 and 10A001299, are well-known to the Geauga Bar Association.
Both farms are now seeking financial remuneration through for David Joyce's removal of their property rights. Geauga taxpayers are footing that cost as well.
If David Joyce could violate the property rights guaranteed by Ohio Revised Code with Geauga County taxpayer funds, is he the Congressman that should represent the 14th District?

Yes Diane, David Joyce is facing his first election. Now he has to work for it.
For years and years, election after election, Joyce has been coasting along, not worrying about getting voted out. How could this be, I wonder? Were their never any credible, worthy opponents to run against him in all the years he was Geauga County Prosecutor? I THINK NOT!
Unfortunately it is a common practice with alot of so called Republicans to make deals with the Democratic Party behind the scenes to not run anybody against them. You all know this comes with a price. Whatever deal they agree to, it amounts to partial support of the Democratic platform.
Is someone like that really a Republican, or just playing both sides?
