ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF
Walter “Skip” Claypool is a veteran and a fierce defender of the U. S. Constitution.
The rights that many have fought so hard to earn and defend are in dire jeopardy today. The right to bear arms is under constant attack. The right to secure communication has been trashed by the NSA. The right to freedom of speech at town hall meetings has been severely abused by local public officials.
Mary Samide has spent her entire career selling out the rights of Geauga County residents. Her blind and solicitous support of NOACA, (Northeast Ohio Area wide Coordinating Agency), H.F.A., (Ohio Housing Finance Agency), H.U.D. (Housing and Urban Development), has made a devastating impact on our property rights along with fostering an exponentially growing population of residents who have come to expect and demand generational public assistance.
In 2005, County Commissioner Mary Samide developed and approved the CHIS, (Community Housing Improvement Strategy). This plan insisted on implementing subsidized housing and handouts. The CHIS plan was required by the Ohio Office of Housing and Community Partnership in order to pave the way for the biggest influx of unconstitutional expenditure of federal funding and loss of legislative control in Geauga County's history.
Mary Samide stands for Section 8 Housing, grants that erode the control we have over our property rights, rental subsidies for individuals waiting for Section 8 housing, funding the purchase of homes for non-residents who want to transition to home ownership in Geauga County, NOACA funded projects and regionalism, etc.
In her own defense, Mary Samide stated, “Sheriff Dan McClelland is in front of the Commissioners all of the time asking for grants, why doesn’t anyone criticize him?”
Sadly, Mary Samide has made her mark on Geauga County. I hope residents will support a candidate who will help our community recover and reclaim what Samide has given away. My family and I are supporting Walter “Skip” Claypool, a veteran and a fierce defender of the U.S. Constitution.

Judy, thanks for the letter. Very accurate.
My observations and experiences with Mary Samide over the years have not been good ones.
At various commissioners meetings I have attended over the years, myself and others have caught Mary in lies right in front of everyone. Even when confronted with proof she was lying, such as her voting record, comments in the paper, or statements she made on the record at past meetings, she still continued to repeat her lie and insist it was true. I don't know about you, but my opinion is something is seriously wrong with anyone who would do that repeatedly. I don't trust ANYTHING she says!
I agree that she has sold out Geauga for years. She is so good at decieving people as it is a way of life for her, but also, alot of people in Geauga have not been paying attention. I hope they start to NOW.
