At the Basic American Rights Seminar in Eugene, Oregon on September 29, the keynote speaker was Ann McElhinny, director of the documentaries Not Evil, Just Wrong and FrackNation. Always an energetic speaker, one subject of her talk really stuck out.
This last weekend in Cincinnati Ohio over 6,500 grassroots volunteers and FreedomWorks supporters joined us for over six hours of training and inspirational presentations. Using our livestream technology located on our FreedomConnector platform, an additional 20,000 members watched and participated in real time discussion and interactions.
After a long weekend of learning how to be a better activist and learning how to continue grassroots movements in their perspective states, patriots from different states in the nation were so passionate about the cause that on Monday afternoon once the training sessions were formally over they took to Capitol Hill to lobby. The activists were led through the senate buildings by some staffers and interns from FreedomWorks and given information and talking points about the Utility MACT and S.J. Res. 37.
FreedomWorks is excited to be coming back to Ohio next month for our first grassroots road trip of the 2012 election season!We'll be kicking off the tour in Troy with a Get-Out-the-Vote training session before continuing on to Cleveland and Toledo to help train and organize the great activists there.I hope you can join us for at least one of these exciting events.As you know, 2012 is a pivotal year for Ohio and America. From ObamaCare to EPA regulations, radical and dangerous policies are killing jobs across the country and preventing an economic recovery.
On November 8th, Ohio voters will decide on two critical ballot initiatives, Issues 2 & 3, that have national implications for the Tea Party movement. If both measures pass it will be a huge victory in our efforts to stop ObamaCare and the corrupt influence of Big Labor.
Pledge to Vote YES on Issues 2 & 3 FreedomWorks and our local tea party allies in Ohio are teaming up to support Governor Kasich's union reform agenda and stop ObamaCare in its tracks this November by urging our members to vote YES on Ballot Issues 2 & 3. When SB 5 was passed last spring, it helped balance Ohio's budget by giving local governments desperately-needed flexibility to renegotiate certain aspects of public sector union contracts. It also introduced a system of merit pay for public employees, while asking them to contribute a small percentage of their income to their own benefit and pension plans.

On March 31, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed SB 5 into law during a televised ceremony, finally limiting the abused power of public sector union collective bargaining in the Buckeye State. FreedomWorks supported passage for this vital legislation by organizing local activists, forming petition drives and holding rallies around the state.
The fight against public sector unions in Ohio is heating up. SB 5 has passed out of a key committee and will hit the Senate floor any minute.The unions are pushing hard on state senators, and even lying about the bill. Supporters of SB5 need your support NOW. This is a chance for Ohio to stand strong in the face of union threats and lies, and they need all the support they can get! Please TAKE ACTION NOW!
Across our country, responsible Governors and state legislators are tackling bloated state budgets by confronting the exorbitant influence held by public sector unions. In Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, FreedomWorks is supporting crucial legislation to “Save Our States”.
