Phil Davison Stark County, Public speaking is not my talent or concert, which tend to loosen up once I get animated and / or irritation on the topic of discussion. Of course, this is usually not a big thing!
CBS News has more: To say that Phil Davison is passionate about the situation of the office of treasurer of Stark County, Ohio could be the understatement of the year.
The Republican – “I’ve been a Republican in good times and I’ve been a Republican when times are bad!” states – sought his party’s nomination for county treasurer and called a little crazy for approval of his party this week.
Davison, a councilman Minvera, Ohio, lost the nomination to North Canton Finance Director Alex tingling, according to the Huffington Post. But certainly left a lasting impression with his fellow Republicans in Stark County.
Besides political: However, thanks to YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, Davison earned more notoriety than most local Pols into a life of service. (See: Arnold Schwarzenegger Sarah Palin needles)
POLITICAL Davison said Thursday afternoon he was surprised by the glow of attention from his fiery speech generated and said it was bombarded with calls from all over the country after the video ricocheted through the Internet.
“It’s shocking. I do not know what to say. I’m speechless,” said Davison. “I was emotional last night. For me it is a passion for what we believe”
That’s an understatement. A town councilor in the last 13 years, delivered a six-minute stemwinder Davison for all ages that can never be equaled in the annals of the county treasurer races. (See: Glenn Beck gives 9 / 11 rally fee)
He began by ticking detail of your resume: “I have a masters degree in public administration and master’s degree in communication,” before entering an evangelist diatribe, promising to eliminate the office of the treasurer ” plague “that had plagued it, a reference to Democratic incumbent who was removed from office for alleged embezzlement.
“I will not apologize for my tone tonight,” Davison roared to a crowd of about 100. “I’ve been a good Republican and I’ve been a Republican in bad times.” (See: Jon Stewart McCain passes a love note)
Davison got so worked, he even ran into his favorite line from Albert Einstein: “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity,” forcing him to repeat the line several times.
If granted the party’s nod, he promised the committee would not have a more aggressive campaign in the general election.
“Politics is not playing football politics is winner take all,” roared Davison. “The government may be about service.” Politics is about winning. ”
He is not sure if the speech helped or hurt his bid. He said he received no response or a strong reaction of party members present. (See: GOP than Democrats on Twitter)
“It was strange,” he said. “Votes would have been nice. I really do not know how it was received.”
Either way, Davison said he does not regret the tenor of his comments and was simply trying to channel the political passions of their pre-television era.
“I guess I consider myself a politician of the old school, and that’s all I have right now,” he said. “I like what I do and want to participate.”
“Last night I spoke my mind,” he added. “If I were to give again, I would give it again. It was not my intention to offend anyone, that’s the last thing he wanted to do. I want to be inclusive.”
In any case, Davison said his zeal for public service is even stronger, driven by frustration with the economy and rising unemployment, including his own. He worked as a bailiff from 2001 to 2009, but now only receives 260 a month from his work part-time council.
“It’s hard to find a minimum wage job,” he said. “I want to defend the people out there think that inclusion is what our country needs.” (See: Rendell: GOP “simply crazy”)
Despite the loss, Davison hopes to continue participating in politics.
“I would try to form a faction of a radical new Republican Party that brings in different groups. More people need a voice,” he said. “Some people call it bigotry, I call it being a believer. I want to make a difference.”
