SB5 opponents ready to start circulating repeal petitions

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.
