Campaign Trip 2011

On December 1, 2011, in Activist Council, by Marilyn Robb

From November 4-8, the Activist Council of the Columbia Democrats led 56 students on a campaign trip to Ohio. We worked with We Are Ohio to canvass Cleveland encouraging voters to vote no on Issue 2. A no vote would repeal Ohio Senate Bill 5, a bill to limit collective bargaining rights for public sector unions. Around 9:30 on the night of November 8, the state announced that the bill had been defeated. This was an extremely important victory for the country, and the Columbia Democrats are proud to have been a part of it.
