SB5 opponents ready to start circulating repeal petitions



Published: Mon, April 18, 2011 @ 3:17 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Opponents of controversial collective bargaining reform signed into law recently by Gov. John Kasich are literally waiting for the ink to dry on petitions so they can begin collecting signatures to place the issue on the November ballot.

Dennis Willard, spokesman for We Are Ohio, one of the groups involved in the drive, told reporters Monday that 100,000 petition booklets are being printed and checked to ensure there were no ink splotches before sending them to 10,000-plus volunteers who will circulate them throughout the state.

Senate Bill 5 opponents could begin adding their signatures to the booklets as soon as Friday.

“Our goal is to get between 460,000 and half a million signatures,” Willard said.

No signage for me. SB5 is good for Ohio and the public employees who want to continue their plush pay, cadillac healthcare, and golden pension plans on my ever increasing tax dollar know where they can go - straight there!

Somehow the message isn't getting to the little people who pay taxes that anyone working for the government is special . They deserve to keep their status quo while the little people take a pounding from the economy and their tax load . Austerity will help them to shoulder a bit more in taxation to keep the special ones from sinking to this level .
