“just a wrestling coach”and that the Incumbents have more money, that’s just the way it is. Snider said he was more than a wrestling coach and when into detail about being a husband, father, and a teacher for 23 years. Snider asked the crowd
“Does it take money to buy your vote? Because a man can put more flyers in your mailbox, is that what we have come to in this county? If you got a sticker placed on you that says Ralston and it wasn’t your choice, you can take it off, it’s your choice.”It was noticeable these remarks created some tension in the room. When Snider stated to the people it was time to end handouts for people who could work and time to bring back the work ethic in this country. These were his first real applause lines of the night.
“Then go look at the $620,000 in the others person’s account and see where the money goes, now if money can buy your vote go ahead. I am nobody’s puppet.”These statements were clearly starting to get the attention of the room.
“If you’re going to be full time down there don’t take the case.”
“I’m not running for Speaker of the House. Write down two things the Speaker of the House has done for your county. If you have a list vote for him, if your page is blank? The man started coming here when I announced in October. You’re going to see a lot more of him, but ask yourself how much have you seen the Speaker prior to this.”
“Wouldn’t you like to see a debate between me and Mr. Ralston? You have asked for it.”
“Follow the money. Who is putting the money in the coffers of the Incumbents. Just go look online it will tell you, if someone gave you $30,000 this year how are you going to vote? That is the reason it gets stripped down.”The lady asking the question was clearly a Snider supporter.
“You’re replacing a beloved Speaker, how long is it going to take you to get on a committee or the chairmanship of a committee?”Snider did not give a clear answer on how he would accomplish getting on a committee. He could only refer to the challenges he faced as a freshmen wrestling coach. Snider did answer the comment about a beloved speaker by saying,
“I got 40 people down there you need to ask about being a beloved speaker and that number is growing and is going to keep growing.”
