Work for Change

Democratic candidate for Ohio's 15th congressional district, Mary Jo Kilroy, who is a Franklin County Commissioner has voiced her concerns about ballot security. Dispatch:

...Commissioner Mary Jo Kilroy brought up the ballotsecurity issue last week as Franklin County officials discussed Election Day preparations.

Bev Harris, director of the national elections watchdog group Black Box Voting, said she’s concerned about who has access to absentee ballots and how they’re counted...

...In addition, senior Republicans such as Reynolds and Representative Deborah Pryce of Ohio, the GOP's conference chair, are under fire for failing to take action against Foley. And some analysts think the ethics cases have combined to fuel voters' desire to clean house...

The Orange County Register reports the following:

...Ohio, usually a swing state, has become a disaster for Republicans, not only because of national issues and a sluggish local economy, but because the Republicans who have occupied both the governorship and the Legislature for 18 years have not only raised taxes but become embroiled in numerous scandals. Thus two-term Republican Sen. Michael DeWine, who is not connected to the scandals, is expected to lose big-time.

A Democratic sweep in Ohio will not only take down DeWine (who was just cut off from additional funds from the national party), it could sweep out Deborah Pryce and state Sen. Joy Padgett, running for the seat vacated by the indicted Rep. Bob Ney....

Change is coming. Want to work for change? Contact Kilroy for Congress and volunteer your time. You could make phone calls, pass out pamphlets, or help in their headquarters. With your help, you will be able to tell your children and friends that you helped change the political climate of Ohio and our country. Change depends on your vote and your action.
