Desperate Pavligia Falsely Attacks Workman

Did You get this Hit Piece in your Mail Yesterday in Portage County?






Desperate and Despicable Blue 22 Traitor and now PROVABLE LIAR Gail Pavliga got "support" yesterday from Democrat/RINO House Speaker Jason Stephens and the Democrat Unions when they mailed this HIT PIECE to every Republican in Portage County.

Their is only one problem . . . The "dark money special interests group that opposes President Trump", who they claim is supporting Heidi Workman, is Americans for Prosperity (AFP), which is anti-Trump and is sending out mailers supporting many of the challengers to the Blue 22. 

However, as you can see in the text that Heidi sent to me and members of her campaign staff on January 6, 2024, AFP withdrew their supportof Heidi after she posted Pro-Trump statements on social media and she told them she would not take them down!!! You won't be getting any AFP mailers supporting Heidi Workman and the entire premise of this mailing is a blatant LIE!

They even paid to run TV ads in Portage County to try to convince you that Heidi Workman is Anti-Trump! I guess that is why Gail Pavliga told Heidi not to run against her because "the Democrat Unions will give me all the money I need to get re-elected"! 

I've got news for you Gail, on March 19th We the People of Portage County are going to throw you out of OUR Ohio House and then take it back from the Democrats next year when we show Jason Stephens the door! SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE!



 


PRESS RELEASE

Portage County TEA Party Endorses
Jill Crawford for Portage County Commissioner


For Immediate Release: Thursday, February 15, 2024
Contact: Tom Zawistowski, TomZ@OhioCitizensPAC.org


Akron, OH: Tom Zawistowski, Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party and the Treasurer of the Ohio Citizens PAC, announced today that both organizations are endorsing Jill Crawford for County Commissioner in Portage County for the March 19, 2024 Republican Primary. In making the endorsement, Zawistowski focused on Crawford's qualifications for the job as well as her family's long time relationship with the Portage County TEA Party. 

Zawistowski said, "I have known Jill Crawford for many years as her late husband Carl Crawford was the Treasurer for the Portage County TEA Party for almost its entire 15 year existance. Carl Crawford played an integral role in our turning Portage County from totally blue to totally red. It was Jill Crawford who helped make it possible for Carl to give the time, effort and money they gave as a family to help elect conservatives to most of the key elected positions in Portage County."

Zawistowski continued, "Since Carl's passing, Jill Crawford has stepped up to support conservative candidates, like our own Sheriff Bruce Zuchowski, and recently decided to run for office herself. I will be the first to tell you, and she will confirm, that she is no politician! Jill is a very accomplished Certified Public Accountant with over 30 years of experience. She is not one to be swayed by emotions when making a decision. She is a practical, commonsense, fact based, conservative who will be as tight with your tax dollars as she is with her own family budget! As a County Commissioner, we need people who can analyze complex situations and determine the best, and least expensive, way to do what is best for the citizens of Portage County. That defines Jill Crawford to a tee!"

Zawistowski concluded, "We in the Portage County TEA Party are so proud of Jill for being willing to run for office in order to serve the county she loves so much. We ask that all conservative Republican voters in Portage County share our endorsement with everyone they know so that they can vote for Jill Crawford for Portage County Commissioner in the March Primary. Remember, early voting starts next week on February 21, 2024! Anyone who would like to donate to help us elect Jill Crawford can do so by Clicking Here to Donate to the Ohio Citizens PAC which will be helping to promote her campaign."

Read Jill Crawford's Letter to You

Dear Portage County Voter:

I am Jill Crawford and would like to introduce myself as I hope to serve you as your Portage County Commissioner.

In the economic times we are facing at a national, state, and local level, it is important that there is strong oversight of the fiscal duties that impact how Portage County tax dollars are spent. The Board of County Commissioners is granted administrative duties to support and promote development as well as fiscal responsibilities to oversee and coordinate the county General Fund across various departments and services. The Board of County Commissioners is essentially the custodian of the county’s checkbook.
Providing transparency and accountability to you, the taxpayer, should remain the focus for making financial decisions with these tax dollars. Strong analytical skills are important to properly evaluate issues brought forward for consideration. The skill set I have developed as a professional in the financial area will be relevant and valuable to making these types of decisions.

I am well qualified to serve as County Commissioner. I graduated with honors from Kent State University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. I am a Certified Public Accountant, and I have over 30 years of experience practicing at national and regional public accounting firms as well as at a large, privately held business. I gained valuable insight during my career to the challenges faced by entities whether in the private or public sector. I have strong analytical skills to work through relevant facts to make decisions. The traits demonstrated over my professional career are instilled in me, and I will apply these same traits and professionalism to this office.

My roots in Portage County run deep. I have been a resident for over twenty-five years. My late husband Carl and I chose to live here and to raise our son Joseph in this community. Joseph attends Kent State University, continuing to reside in the county where he was raised, further strengthening my family commitment to this area.

Why am I seeking an elected county office? Many reasons come to mind including a very personal one. My late husband was active in local political organizations including the Portage County Republican Party as well as serving as a campaign treasurer for several candidates. He was passionate about his love for this great country as well as the belief that even one voice can make a difference. I share that passion and that belief. I will be your voice.

I am asking for your vote as I am well qualified and will bring transparency, accountability, and professionalism to the office. The opportunity to represent my county through the role of County Commissioner is a privilege in which I will take great pride and responsibility. I look forward to serving the county which so many other families like mine have chosen to call home.

Respectfully,

Jill Crawford


Portage County TEA Party Endorses Heidi Workman for Ohio House after "Blue 22" Traitor Gail Pavliga Votes AGAINST Portage County Values in Ohio Education Committee Vote Today!


For Immediate Release: Wednesday, December 6, 2023
Contact: Tom Zawistowski, TomZ@PortageCountyTEAParty.com

Portage County, Ohio: Today the Portage County TEA Party Executive Director, Tom Zawistowski, announced that the organization is endorsing Heidi Workman in the March 19, 2024 Republican Primary to replace failed Ohio House member Gail Pavliga, whom the group had previously elected twice. Zawistowski made it clear in his announcement that the only way to get honest representation is not just to elect people to office who share your values, but to be able to Un-Elect those who betray the voters and their values. Today, Gail Pavligia totally betrayed the conservative voters of Portage County who put her in office twice.

Zawistowski said,"Gail Pavliga was nobody. She had no name ID. She had no money. She had no political experience. She came to the Portage County TEA Party in 2019 as a candidate who wanted to run for the Ohio House. She said that she believed in our conservative values. She participated in our Liberty Camp for Kids and professed her love of the Constitution. We elected her to the Ohio House in 2020 and again in 2022. Then immediately after the election just a year ago, Gail Pavliga took the bribe from the Democrat Teachers Unions and betrayed everyone who voted for her."

Zawistowski continued, "The Conservative voters of Ohio elected the largest super-majorities in the Ohio House and Senate in Ohio HISTORY in 2022 because we wanted to take back our schools and our government from the woke radical leftists. We wanted to end the indoctrination of our children with the anti-American Critical Race Theory (CRT) lies, we wanted freedom to make our own medical decisions, we wanted to stop the assault on our values from the racist and sexist Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and radical trans-agenda, we wanted election reform and more. The Republicans we elected promised to deliver those things and more. Until we were betrayed."

Zawistowski explained, "When the"Blue 22 Traitors", including Gail Pavliga, voted with 33 Democrats last January to steal the House Speaker position, all that we had voted for in the 2022 election was derailed. Today was the last straw. When Gail Pavliga voted against the Ohio Education Reform Bill in a Committee vote, she showed what a sellout she is. At one point during the Committee discussion of the bill Pavliga actually said that she could not decide until she talks to Kent State about the bill!!! Kent State didn't elected you Gail WE DID! Did you come home and ask your voters how you should vote??? Of course you didn't. It is clear to us that "Professor Pavliga" doesn't give a damn about protecting our children or representing the values of the voters in Portage County who elected her. She is too busy kissing Kent State's ass in the hope of getting a job there once we throw her out of the Ohio House." 

Zawistowski asked, "Look at what was in this Senate Bill 83 today. What is in this that my fellow Portage Patriots haven't wanted for years??? Key provisions of the bill include:
  • Prohibiting mandatory diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs
  • Allowing tenured professors to be fired
  • Modifying collective bargaining agreements
  • Requiring students to take a course in the subject area of American government or history
  • Preventing professors from taking stances in the classroom on controversial topics, which include issues such as climate policies, electoral politics, foreign policies, DEI, immigration, marriage, or abortion policies
  • Prohibiting universities from taking public positions on these controversial topics
  • Requiring course syllabi to be made publicly available online
  • Preventing unions from negotiating on tenure
Gail Pavliga voted NO on ALL of this and Now She Must Go!!! Thankfully Eight REAL Republicans voted YES and moved the bill out of the Committee so that it can now go to the House floor perhaps as early as next week."

Zawistowski concluded by saying, "Get the hell out of our House, Gail! Get the hell out of Portage County for that matter! Gail told our endorsed candidate Heidi Workman when they first met a few months ago that the "Democrat Unions will give me all the money I need to get re-elected, so don't bother running against me." Well Gail, the Democrats don't run Portage County and they never elected you to anything. You can have Nancy Pelosi and the whole damned DNC come in and give you all the money they want, but WE THE POEPLE of Portage County who Elected You are going to THROW YOUR ASS OUT IN MARCH. You shouldn't even file to run for re-election, Gail. You should resign in shame right now because you represent the most vile and disgusting part of corrupt politics. You are a dirty traitor who put your personal interests ahead of your voters and we don't have to take your abuse and we will not stand for it. I ask my fellow Portage County Patriots to share this email with everyone they knowand if you see Traitor Gail anywhere in town, let her know how you feel. Then vote her the hell out in the Republican Primary."

Meet our New House Candidate!

 


Ohio Voters Defeat AUGUST Issue 1 by 57%-43%
in Record Turnout for an August Election


Akron, OH: Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the national We the People Convention (WTPC) organization, expressed his disappointment and concern after Ohio voters defeated State Issue 1 by a 57% to 43% margin on Tuesday, August 8th. Passage of Issue 1 would have raised the percentage of popular votes necessary to pass a Constitutional Amendment in Ohio to 60% from the current standard of 50% +1.

Zawistowski said, “Fueled by tens of millions of dollars in TV ads and other media, Ohioans turned out in historic numbers as over three million voters, 38% of all registered voters, came out to vote on Issue 1 which was defeated by a margin of 429,000 votes. Looking at the county-by-county voter results, it is my view that the left did not win Issue 1 as much as the conservative right lost the vote. This was primarily a result of confusion that was intentionally injected into the campaign by very clever, and I would say misleading, TV ads run by the left at the start of the campaign. These ad split the conservative vote just enough in rural communities to sway the election and cause the defeat of Issue 1."

Zawistowski continued, "Raising the bar to 60% of the popular vote was intended to make it harder for outside big money special interests to change the Ohio Constitution in the future. This became necessary once it was understood that, after Roe v Wade was reversed, the radical left discovered that it could “Legislate via Constitutional Amendment”. Even in red states which were vulnerable because of existing laws allowing for “Citizens Initiatives” like what they passed in Kansas earlier this year and Ohio is their next target. Unfortunately, we were unable to help Ohio Citizens understand that what the left has planned is much broader and deeper and more radical than just the November Abortion/Trans/Parents Rights Amendment. This vote was about the FUTURE Ohio Constitutional Amendments that the Left has planned for Guns, School Choice, Small Businesses, Farmers, Parents Rights, future election laws and more. Which was proven by comments made by the Democratic Mayor of Cleveland when he said the quiet part out loud that people should vote NO on Issue 1 so that they, the left, can implement gun control in Ohio using future Constitutional Amendments.”

Zawistowski concluded, “There were implications in this election for the 2024 election as well. Despite a significant effort to convince conservative voters to vote early in person or by mail, they did not do that in significant numbers, and the left built an early vote lead that was basically the margin of victory in the end. Clearly early voting continues to provide an advantage for the Left's get-out-the-vote machine. I want to thank the tens of thousands of grassroots activists in Ohio, and our coalition partners, who worked very hard to educate voters and get out the vote in their counties. Especially those who participated in our very successful Barn Billboard program. I also want to thank the tens of thousands of poll workers who make our elections possible and who did an excellent job on Tuesday. We know now that we will now have to regroup and make changes to our efforts so that we can defeat the radical Abortion/Trans/Parents Rights Amendment in November.”

Portage County TEA Party Member Arrested & Charged Unjustly for Jan 6th Actions


After over two years of taking no action the DOJ and the FBI decided that they needed to charge PCTEA Member Trevor Cain for his actions at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. The reason that they initially took no action was because Trevor DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG! He even turned over his cell phone on which he had video of Capitol Police inviting him and many other Patriots into the Capitol Building! He broke nothing, he took nothing, he did not assault any police, he simply walked around the Capitol singing Patriotic Songs for 30 minutes and then he left peacefully!

So why did the Department of "Injustice" and the FBI decide to arrest him now - nearly two and a half years later??? Because there is an election coming up and we can't have you pesky Patriots standing up and fighting back against the illegitimate Biden Regime and the Deep State! So we are going to make a public spectacle of arresting Trevor Cain, and plant a completely one sided and totally exaggerated article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, as a warning to ALL OF US that you better not fight back in the 2024 Election or this will happen to YOU!

Their intimidation tactics didn't work when Obama sent the IRS after US. It didn't work when they arrested Patriots for resisting the Covid Lockdowns and Mask Mandates and Vax Mandates. It didn't work when they started unjustly arresting Patriots after January 6th. It didn't work even when they arrested Trump himself! We will NOT BE SILENCED and we WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED and we WILL NOT GIVE UP OUR FIGHT TO RECLAIM CONTROL OF OUR GOVERNMENT and bring these unlawful actors to Justice!

It is our duty as Patriots to fight this injustice and help Trevor Cain defend himself until we can win the Election in 2024 and have him and the other January 6th Patriots Pardoned. I am asking you to click on his GiveSendGo.com image below and make a donation to help pay for his legal fees. It's real simple. If you will not fight to defend Trevor Cain when they came for him then who will fight to defend you when they come for you? For your safety, GiveSendGo.com allows you to make anonymous donations if you like. Please DONATE TODAY and share this email with others and SPEAK OUT about the Injustices being done to January 6th Political Prisoners to everyone you know!

For Liberty,

Tom Zawistowski

The PCTEA Morns the Passing of our Past President Bob Longshore


Former Portage County TEA Party President, Bob Longshore, passed away on Tuesday, June 20, 2023. He was a true Patriot and Statesman and we were honored to know him and to have worked with him for all of these years.

He was with the Portage County TEA Party from the very start on July 11, 2009 and he contributed to our growth and effectiveness in many ways using his organizational and communications skills. Their was no task that Bob would not take on to help us elect conservatives and defend our nation. As a result he played an integral role in our organization turning Portage County from Solid Democrat Blue in 2009 to Solid Republican Red by 2018.

Bob also founded and ran a very successful non-profit organization called Caring Neighbors United which raised money through it's popular flower sales and other efforts to provide scholarships for Portage County children to attend the popular Liberty Camp for Kids. Through that effort alone hundreds of kids got to attend Liberty Camp over the years.

He made our community, our county, our state and our nation a better place through his many efforts over the many years. We appreciate his military service and that of all the Veterans who have been members of the Portage County TEA Party. He had many friends in the Portage County TEA Party.

We give our sincere condolences to his wife Marge and to all of his family members. May he rest in Eternal Peace. We will miss you Bob Longshore.

VOTE YES ON BOTH ISSUES 1 & ISSUES 2

by is licensed under

Why YOU Should Vote YES on Issue 1

What is Issue 1 on the August 8, 2023 ballot?

Put simply, it requires 60 percent approval for future amendments to the Ohio Constitution.


Why is that important?

The Ohio Constitution is a mess. It’s filled with legislation that belongs in the Ohio Revised Code. Currently, big money groups from outside Ohio have the ability to finance large scale efforts to change the Ohio Constitution with a simple majority vote of the people. This 60 percent rule to protect our constitution should have been put in place decades ago. Regardless, if we don’t pass this, our constitution will undoubtedly get worse.
 

What groups are supporting this protection?

In addition to my personal endorsement, the Clermont County Republican Party, State Treasurer Robert Sprague, and many more.

Cincinnati Right to Life put out a memo with this paragraph:
A groundswell of organizations including the Ohio Republican Party, Center for Christian Virtue, the National Federation of Independent Business in Ohio, Ohio Chamber of Commerce, Ohio Restaurant Association, and Ohio Right to Life are mobilizing Ohioans to vote yes on Issue 1. Many recognize that for too long, Ohio’s Constitution has been up for sale to the highest bidder. From casinos to drug-legalization pushers to abortionists, special interests with millions of dollars have targeted the Ohio Constitution because of the ease of amending our state’s founding document.
 
Cincinnati Right to Life 6/22/2023
 
Additionally, a good summary came from Buckeye Firearms:
 
A YES vote on Issue 1 protects our Second Amendment rights from deep-pocketed, out-of-state interests, like anti-gun Mike Bloomberg. So, of course, gun grabbers and the media are spreading lies to get people to vote against it in the upcoming Aug. 8 special election.
One lie is that Issue 1 is radical and undemocratic because it makes it harder to change Ohio’s constitution.

But changing a constitution is supposed to be difficult — more difficult than changing ordinary laws. For example, the founders made it hard to change the U.S. Constitution. To amend it requires a 2/3 vote of both chambers of Congress and a vote of 3/4 of state legislatures.

Most states make it hard to change their constitutions as well. For example, Colorado requires a 55% vote. Florida requires a 60% vote. New Hampshire requires a 66% vote.

And guess what? The Ohio Democratic Party itself requires a vote of 60% to amend its own bylaws, i.e., their party constitution! That’s exactly the same vote threshold Issue 1 calls for to change Ohio’s constitution!

Dean Rieck, Executive Director


Friends of Liberty United (FOLU) put out this statement:
 
Over 30 states already require 60% to amend their state constitution. Issue 1 just aligns Ohio with the majority of other states.

Since 1851, Ohio’s Constitution has been amended 172 times while the US Constitution has been amended only 27 times since 1789! Even a Presidential veto takes a 2/3 vote (@67%) in the House before a bill becomes a law. Ohio has 88 counties. When only 5% of voters signing initiative petition in 44 counties to be required for initiative petitions, this already leaves half (50%) of our counties not represented. If a proposed amendment is good, these new requirements should not be a problem.

Friends of Liberty United (FOLU)
 
Also consider “Why Ohio’s Constitution Should be Hard to Amend.”
Also "Why Governor Dewine will be votine YES on Issue 1"
And “Why Hunters and Sportsmen Should Vote Yes on Issue 1.”
And the “Ohio Farm Bureau supports Issue 1.”
 

Important Dates:


July 10: Voter registration deadline for August 8 election.
July 11: Early in-person voting for August 8 election begins.
August 1: Deadline to request absentee ballot for August 8 election.
August 8: Election Day.
