Walton Hills Mayor Marlene Anielski and candidate for 17th Ohio House District seat has no problem standing up and doing the right thing. Anieleski, who has proven throughout her career that she is a free thinking individual, is again going against the tide of the popular thing to do & is standing up showing she cannot be forced into supporting anything that infringes on our constitutional rights...
From Buckeye Firearms --
On Tuesday, Buckeye Firearms Association broke the news that Village of Walton Hills, OH Mayor Marlene Anielski had submitted to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg her resignation from the gun control front group known as Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG).
Since then, the news has been spread far and wide, and Anielski is doing some high-profile interviews to further explain her motivations for the resignation.
That same day, NRANews' Ginny Simone delivered a live report on the positive news as her lead story during "The Daily News" show. A podcast of that broadcast is available here.
Simone also conducted a telephone interview with Mayor Anielski on Wednesday, and delivered another live lead-story report which included that taped interview. That podcast is available here.
Gongwer News Service has also picked up the story, in a report entitled "House candidate quits gun control group":Walton Hills Mayor Marlene Anielski, a Republican candidate for the 17th Ohio House District seat, resigned from a gun control group organized by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, according to the Buckeye Firearms
Ms. Anielski said she became concerned about the direction of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which she said is looking to "shift blame" for violent crime to law-abiding gun owners.
"I am dedicated in defending and advancing the right of Ohio citizens to own and use firearms for all legal activities, including self-defense and competitions," she wrote. "We need to defend our Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms."
Ms. Anielski is running for the House seat being vacated by Rep. Josh Mandel (R-Lyndhurst).
And this is exactly why I think the world of Mayor Anielski... she is not afraid to stand up and do the right things! I agree illegal guns are bad and it is highly admirable that Anielski refuses to be brought into the political gamesmanship of turning this into an attack on the 2nd Amendment rights of every day Americans.
It should also be noted that Mayor Anielski was only one of three mayors in Cuyahoga County that felt the forced sales tax increase for the still yet to be built Med Mart should have been placed on the ballot for a vote of the residents.
When elected to the OH House, Anielski will finally give the residents of this area the voice we have been sorely lacking in Columbus.
