The message below from the Ohio Liberty Council notes three important subjects that will command much attention by Tea Party groups across Ohio in 2014. I particularly want to draw your attention to the opportunity we have in 2014 to influence the actions of the Hamilton County Republican Party by electing representatives to the Hamilton County Republican Party Central Committee. This is done through the election of a Precinct Executive in each Hamilton County Precinct.
The Cincinnati East Tea Party is undertaking a recruiting, training and support effort for Precinct Executive candidates in Cincinnati Wards 1, 2, 4 & 5 covering Oakley, Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout. If you are interested in learning more, e-mail us at cincinnatieast (at) live.com and we will contact you. The timeline is short as candidates must file their petition by February 5.
From the Ohio Liberty Coalition:
1) Help stop Common Core in Ohio. This Wednesday, November 20, at 5:00 p.m. in Columbus, there will be a second hearing on HB237 and the question of stopping Common Core in Ohio. The hearing will take place in Statehouse Room 313. We need a good show of support at the hearing as well as volunteers to testify. Learn more at this link:
2) Take Back the Political Parties. For Ohio counties with races next year, February 5 is the deadline to file to run for party central committee. Central committee members vote whether or not to endorse candidates and have a tremendous influence over who ultimately appears on the general election ballot. Each voter precinct can send one person to serve and it only takes five signatures to run. Learn more by taking the survey at this link:
3) Help make Ohio a Right to Work State. Since 1990, states with workplace freedom or “right to work” laws grew jobs at an average rate 5X faster than Ohio (link). A workplace freedom law simply gives individuals the freedom to decide whether or not to join a union. It does not eliminate unions or take away collective bargaining rights. Volunteers are needed to help collect signatures to put the question of passing a workplace freedom law on Ohio’s ballot. Learn more at this link:
