Voting for Rambo

Matt Rambo is running against Judge Grendell for Probate/Juvenile Court Judge. We have met with Matt and reviewed his credentials and experience. We are voting for Matt Rambo for Judge and hope you will, too.

Dear Judge Grendell

In response to your full-page ad in last week’s edition of the Chagrin Valley Times, you claim, based on Matt Rambo’s voting record that he is “not a real Republican and it is dishonest for him to claim to be one.”

You’re attempting to delegitimize Matt Rambo’s campaign because he switched parties. Really? Does your line of reasoning also apply to President Trump. He was a Democrat for years, yet switched parties to run as a Republican.

Being a Republican yourself, I’m assuming you voted for Trump. So, does it really matter to you if a candidate switches party affiliation or are you just being petty?

  1. In budget year 2018, the last available budget, it shows you spent over $1,000,000 more than when you took office in 2011.
  2. The mailers, “Geauga Court News,” cost more than $15,000 to produce. Five mailings have now been produced and mailed to every address in Geauga County. The total cost of these mailing will exceed $75,000. All paid for with public money.
  3. I read in the Geauga County Maple Leaf that in June of 2019, you very publicly (black robes and all) verbally berated a Chardon police officer.
  4. In February 2015, you cited Nancy McArthur with contempt for a private email communication.

Your campaign signs declare “Experience Matters.” Experience may matter, but good judgment and integrity matter much more.
