OUR PRIORITIES:

Protect the Rights of All Workers

Protect the rights of all workers to join together to collectively bargain for wages, benefits and terms of employment. Fight the passage of SB 5, an unprecedented attack on working families which will remove the careful balance that currently exists between management and employees.

Fight for Affordable Healthcare for All Ohioans

Fight for affordable healthcare for all Ohioans, while protecting Medicaid coverage for our mostvulnerable citizens. Preserve previous gains such as lowering the cost of open enrollment forpeople with pre-existing conditions and allowing young adults to remain on their parent’sinsurance plan until age 28. Protect Medicaid optional services for those who are most in need.

Ensure a High Quality Education for all Children

Ensure quality education by adequately funding our public schools and reducing reliance on local property taxes. Fight cuts in funding for pre-K  and the elimination of all day Kindergarten.

Create, Maintain & Attract Good Paying Jobs

Work to preserve current initiatives like the wind and solar tax credits, the film tax credit and the Third Frontier. Pursue additional job creation initiatives such as HB 43, the expansion of the Venture Capital Authority and HB 44. 

 Ensure Quality Care for Older & Disabled Ohioans

Pursue policies which would enable family members to care for their loved ones at home while expanding assisted living care in Ohio’s communities. Ensure our parents and grandparents are given excellent care and treated with the respect they deserve by adequately funding nursing homes. 

Fight Against Cuts to Police, Fire and Other Vital Services

Fight state policies which would force local governments to cut vital services like police and fireprotection, snow removal and garbage pickup. Stop pass-the-buck budgeting by protecting local governments from drastic cuts which will force them to raise property  and income taxes.

 Protect Consumers & Homeowners

Protect consumers and homeowners from those who try to take advantage of them. Continue to fight to help homeowners and renters to remain in their homes and avoid foreclosure. Protect consumers from scams, rip-offs, and predatory lending practices.

Honor Those Who Keep Us Safe

Protect the rights of our military retirees who live and work in Ohio with bills like HB 106. Enable service members to do their jobs without worrying about their rental payments and allow women who desire to serve their country to do so fully and completely.

Protect Ohio’s Assets and Natural Resources

Protect our parks, lakes, rivers, forests and green areas. Fight to stop the sale of our state’s assets for one-time money.
