Sheriff Leis personally causing County's budget woes

The Enquirer has the story here.

Everyone (but COASTers) is afraid of the local buffoon and bully, Sheriff Si Leis, but it's time someone took him on.  And, no, we can't just wait until January when he officially retires to start to fix all the problems he has created.

Neither candidate to replace the Sheriff has articulated a solution to the problems.  Democrat candidate Jim Neil has said he will retain the Township patrols, but has no earthly idea how to pay for that.  Sean Donovan, to what we know, has been mum.

We think the County should not be subsidizing the relatively more wealthy townships.  The Cities and villages in Hamilton County pay for police patrols; wealthier township residents should foot the bill for their own patrols.  The solution is so obvious, it's hard to understand why County and Township leaders are having such a hard time getting this done.

Anyway, the day of Si Leis' retirement will not come too soon for COAST.


  1. Si Leis and Sean Donovan need to go! Their poor management continues to hurt our county.

    If you think Si is bad wait until you get a good look at Sean Donovan. The cronyism and mismanagement will continue unabated.

    Don't forget that supposed "Republican" Sean Donovan is PRO STREETCAR. Time for a new directon.
