Letters to the Club
Hello Rocky River Democrats,
Early voting begins next week. (delay in publishing, starts tomorrow!) Besides voting on several statewide and county issues, we will have the opportunity to elect a democratic majority to city council. We have a candidate on the ballot for every ward. Joining Ward 3 City Councilwoman Jeanne Gallagher again are Lisa Pfaff Haverman candidate for Ward 1 and Ward 2 candidate Michael O’Boyle. Ward 4 will have a candidate in Paul Shipp. For the at-large seats we have Councilwoman Christina Morris. It is important that for the At-large seats you only vote for Christina. Mike O’Shea will once again be our law director as he is running unopposed. One of the Rocky River Municipal Judges will have an open election and there are two seats on the Board of Education.
The County Democratic Party has a Podcast! Every Monday our Former US Representative candidate Matt Diemer can be found interviewing activists doing the work to improve our communities and inform us about the issues affecting us all. Look for CuyahogaToday wherever you listen to podcasts.
We will be working to re-elect Sherrod Brown to the Senate next year. Besides being the Chairman of the banking committee Senator Brown has been a strong advocate for veterans. He has been going to every county advocating and educating veterans on the recently passed PACT Act. While the focus of the act has been on those impacted by burn pits, it has also impacted those suffering from contact with Agent Orange and families suffering from the effects of drinking toxic water at some military installations like Camp Lejune. If you would like to participate in the County Democratic Party Veteran Caucus to re-elect Senator Brown let me know.
Thank you to everyone who has worked to get the petitions signed and educating voters on the two statewide Issues. Issue 1 is the reproductive freedom amendment. Issue 2 is the marijuana legalization amendment. I know the county party will be working pass to out signs and hold post card parties focusing on Issue 1. Some actions you can take are talking to your neighbors, friends, and family reminding them to vote. Ask them if they have a plan and if they need help. A new law was passed that limits the documentation a voter can use to verify registration to vote. Make sure you have the proper documents. It may take several weeks to access some documents. Begin that process now. Letters to the editor talking about why and who you are voting for can help the issues and candidates. A quick paragraph sent to the Westlife, Plain Dealer, or Akron Beacon Journal can help educate our community.
Thank you all for taking the time to vote in the past. Voting is the right that grants you all your other rights. If you don’t use it, you could lose it and other rights along with it. If you have any questions or issues that I can help with, please reach out.
