WOIO Editorial: Cleveland votes on traffic cams

Well, voters in Cleveland have filed petitions to put those despised traffic cameras on the November ballot.  Unfortunately, these voters reside in Cleveland, Texas…not Cleveland, Ohio.  But those voters in Cleveland, Texas, which is forty-five miles north of Houston, have certainly been more successful in their fight against these awful cameras than we have been here in Ohio.

You know, there was a group here called Cuyahoga County for Liberty that started a petition drive back in 2010---but then the whole effort sort of fizzled out.  It's a shame we can't be as active on this issue here in Cleveland, Ohio as they are in Cleveland, Texas.  Because those traffic cameras are nothing but a municipal government scam and a violation of due process.

Write and let me know what you think.  I'm Bill Applegate and here's the address.
