Once again we reach that time of year where we are given the privilege of participating in the governance of our communities. Once again candidates promise the voters things they can’t possibly deliver. Once again voters believe them.
Also, once again, you will be told that you only have two choices, Republican or Democrat.
Once again, that is a lie.
I have never seen anywhere outside of police state efforts directed solely to limit voter’s choices at elections.
The State of Ohio has already knocked the Green Party off the ballot and tried to knock one of our own candidates off but were thwarted by the Ohio Supreme Court (thank you Rob Bender).
I’ve no doubt they will try again in 2020.
The only way to stop that is to make our voices heard and on Tuesday, November 5th, we will have the chance to do just that.
We have three endorsed candidates running for offices in Franklin County in this election: Tricia Sprankle, running for City Attorney in Gahanna, Jennifer Flower, running for Prairie Township Trustee, and Rob Bender, running for Reynoldsburg City Council for Ward 3.
If you live in these communities you can help put these three into office, but only if you actually vote.
To quote a line from Babylon 5, “If we don’t create the future, someone else will.”
