Who is Tom Weidman

I got a telephone pole (poll) this weekend, that was obviously paid for by a Sycamore Township Trustee, Tom Weidman, who is apparently considering a run against Portune for Hamilton County Commissioner.

The questions were things like:
- Would the fact that candidate Weidman is against illegal immigration make you more likely to vote for him or Portune?
- Same question, insert abortion.

I didn't know that Hamilton County Commissioners decided such issues.

With hot-button issues like that being mentioned (especially for a county commissioner race), it sounds more like a push poll than real opinion-gathering.

Ugh. Abortion affects the Hamilton County race how?

Contact the Wiedman office, some organization may be using his name in a negative "dirty trick poll" like was done in New Hampshire.

Phil Heimlich used the same tactic, if it is, in fact, true that this was not paid for by Weidman, but someone else.

And I have to admit that I chuckled when I had to read your post twice, envisioning that you received a big, long, tar-dipped wooden telephone pole from a Sycamore Township trustee. Then I thought about it and realized you had actually meant you got a telephone call that was in the form of a poll.

Pole=poll. Whoops. I thought something looked wrong when I was typing the word pole, but couldn't see the mistake in front of my eyes. Pretty funny. I think I will leave the mistake intact.
