I'm confident that we all are aware of the importance of voting NO on Issue
2 /SB5. If you have not done so, I would encourage you to early vote at the
Mahoning County Board of Elections located on Oak Hill (old South
Hospital). Also, we need you to volunteer during these last 14 days by
canvassing, calling, distributing yard signs, social media or any other
means you deem necessary to put this attack on public employees to rest. If
you have any further questions please contact me.

their classroom or weigh in on the resources they need to teach your

services -- and that's why we need to make sure we Vote no on Issue 2 to
stop Senate Bill 5 on November 8th.

Mitt Romney was in our state today, rallying with folks working to pass
Issue 2 and telling reporters he supported Gov. Kasich's efforts to "to rein
in the scale of government." But absurdly, he also refused to answer the
question whether he publicly supports Issue 2 -- a sidestep only Mitt Romney
knows how to do.
The people who are willing to say they support the law in public claim it's
a necessary step to balance our budget. But, despite what Governor Kasich
and his allies say, the measures in Issue 2 wouldn't add one dollar of state

Thousands of OFA volunteers have told us they want to do everything they can

Party and other progressive groups to let our fellow Ohioans know what's at
