70 turn out at Youngstown rally to reject Issue 2

YOUNGSTOWN — About 70 people rallied today urging voters to reject state Issue 2, which restricts collective bargaining for public employees.

We Are Ohio, the main organization opposing Issue 2, made a stop on The People’s Road Trip at Oakhill Renaissance Place, the new location of the Mahoning County Board of Elections.

Doug Stern, a Cincinnati firefighter featured in a We Are Ohio television commercial, said the ballot issue, if passed, would put public safety in jeopardy and adversely impact citizens.

Those at the rally were encouraged to vote early at the elections board. About 25 of them did today.
