Save the Dates for UAPA Membership Meetings!

2014 is an important election year. In Ohio, we will be electing a (we hope) new Governor and Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, State Auditor and Attorney General. In addition, Congressional Representatives are being elected and replacing Steve Stivers with Scott Wharton is a priority.  Finally, we have county offices like Franklin County Commissioner and Franklin County Auditor and local judgeships.

The FCDP Needs Your Help!

The Franklin County Democratic Party is in need of volunteers to help us answer the phones at Party headquarters.  We're getting a large number of phone calls from voters seeking information.  We don't want to miss these important phone calls at this time of the year.  If we can't help voters we may not get their vote.
 
We're also getting phone calls for voters who may need transportation to the polls.  We have a long list of drivers who are more than willing to make sure every person has a chance to cast their ballot, but we need help matching voters to drivers.
 
If you can help even for a couple hours per day, we'd really appreciate it.  We especially need people on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  This would only be until after the election.
 
If you can help the Democrats in Franklin County, please call 614-229-5286 or e-mail us at franklincountydemocraticparty@gmail.com.
 
We're located at 545 E. Town Street.  There is free parking available in the teamster’s parking lot on Walnut Street behind our headquarters.  Please help us to educate and keep our voters!

 

Should Ohio voters approve State Issue 2?

Yes: Plan would help make drawing of legislative districts more fair

By  Jack D’Aurora

Columbus Dispatch, October 15, 2012

Issue 2 is taking a lot of heat. It calls for replacing the apportionment board — the governor, state auditor, secretary of state and two members of the legislature — with a nonpartisan commission to draw state legislative and congressional districts. Is Issue 2 as bad as the critics say?

The commission would consist of 12 members and be re-established after each federal 10-year census. Anyone who, within 10 years of applying to be a member, served as a federal or state official, or was an employee of the Ohio legislature or U.S. Congress, or was a state agency director or paid lobbyist, is ineligible. The same goes for anyone who, within five years of applying, was a political candidate, campaign consultant, political party employee or made more than $5,000 in political contributions in a two year period.
