Position paper


The last several weeks has been full of stories in print and on social media concerning Columbiana County Republican Party Chairman Dave Johnson.

His meme blaming the California fires on “liberals” caused quite a stir with many. This meme on Facebook was hateful, yet revealing of the person.

What disturbs me more is the complete silence from other elected Republicans in the county. I have reached out to state Rep. Tim Ginter several times in regard to this with no response from him. Not one elected Republican in the county has made a public statement concerning his meme.

Perhaps it is because no one has asked them if they support or condemn his meme. So I will ask, “What is your position”?
