Romney Takes Responsibility For His Own Costs – Doesn’t Leave the Bill For Others To Pay in Ohio – LIKE OBAMA
Romney pays own freight in the Falls
As I reported in August, Copley Township is still owed $10,549 for the expenses it incurred during a 2008 campaign stop by then-vice presidential hopeful Joe Biden.
Copley’s fiscal officer, Janice Marshall, sent a bill to the “Obama for America” campaign but never received a penny.
And Fairlawn rang up $34,146 in police overtime and other expenses this summer when President Barack Obama brought his re-election campaign to town and spent the night at the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn.
Shortly thereafter, Fairlawn’s assistant finance director, Patricia Bertsch, sent a bill to the Obama campaign. She said at the time she wasn’t holding her breath. Good thing. She’d still be holding it.
Now along comes Mitt Romney, dishing out his own election patter in Cuyahoga Falls on a Tuesday night in October.
Far from it.
Long before his big rally at the Falls’ Natatorium, Romney’s campaign folks contacted the city, said they’d like to stage an event there and promised to pay for any extra expenses the city would incur.
