Why Tim Burke Must Go

When asked by the Enquirer about Cranley's snubbing of two Democratic members of council Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke had the following to say:
'“I’m sorry that that happened, and beyond that I’m not going to say any more,” said Tim Burke, chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party.'
Once again Cranley is damaging the Democratic Party and Tim Burke sits by and lets him do it. Burke needs to be removed as Chairman of the HCDP. The 2013 Republican victory is the latest blunder that has happened under Burke's rein. That win came about in part from the following occurrences:

  1. Burke allowing Cranley to run as the de facto GOP candidate with no penalty.
  2. Since Cranley was running as the GOP candidate, Burke failing to push for a Qualls endorsement.
  3. Burke allowing the Dems to endorse 10 for council.
  4. Burke failing to get turnout remotely close to 2011.

The man is running the local party like it is 1988 and Hamilton County has not turned Blue. If the local Dems would start building up candidates insteading of relying on legacies, the party might grow to the dominate force its numbers suggest it should be in the City and the County.

  1. ugh, I'm not even a Democrat & think the guy is worse than useless. In the last congressional races, the shenanigans with the 2nd district candidate & total lack of support for the 1st district candidate were appalling.
    And nothing 'happened' with Cranley. Cranley did it. It wasn't an accident - it wasn't an unpredicted cloudburst - Cranley made those appointments.
