The location of our Norwalk Taxpayer Town Hall this Monday night has been changed to The Freedom Center at 45 E Seminary Street in Norwalk. We will not be meeting at Norwalk High School, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
If You Believe is partnering with us on this town hall which will feature State Representative Terry Boose and others as panelists and speakers, and will be moderated by former State Representative and AFP-Ohio Policy Director Seth Morgan.
We will focus on the financial crises faced by many of our cities, townships, villages, and schools, how these crises could affect Ohio's jobs and citizens, and how State Issue 2 (Senate Bill 5) can help solve these crises and help bring a strong and healthy economy back to Ohio.
Please join us and bring your friends, family, and neighbors to learn more and find out what you can do to take back your future.

Join us tonight in Troy and tomorrow night in the Greater Cincinnati Area-West for a Taxpayer Town Hall
Dont miss our Taxpayer Town Halls tonight in Troy and tomorrow night in the Greater Cincinnati Area. The town hall panels will explain how a vote for Issue 2 (to uphold Senate Bill 5) will help bring more accountability to government, give taxpayers a greater voice in how their tax dollars are spent, help us reign in government spending, avoid job-killing tax hikes that Ohioans just cant afford, and make Ohio more competitive for attracting much-needed jobs into the state. The panel will also take questions from the audience.
We encourage you to bring your friends, family, and neighbors to learn more about what you can do to help move Ohio toward a strong and healthy economy. Here are the details.

The following was written by Former State Representative and AFP-Ohio Policy Director Seth Morgan. It addresses the looming higher education "bubble" and explains how the free market is adapting to find solutions.
Instability in the financial markets, declining real estate markets, and the Washington political elite are contributing to the uncertainty of our times. However, another bubble looms on the horizon and over the heads of Ohio families.
Our higher education system across this country is generally failing to produce the expected return on family and student investment. Prices continue to climb in some cases out of hand while what you get in return for your investment job placement metrics are not acceptable. We are paying more and getting less.
On Friday, union bosses again showed their unwillingness to work to improve Ohios future and bring jobs back to the Buckeye State, when they failed to even show up at a meeting called by Governor Kasich, Senate President Niehaus, and House Speaker Batchelder.
For months, Union bosses have shown they are unwilling to work toward reforms needed to get Ohio back on track to jobs and prosperity. Union bosses political allies failed to offer any amendments to Senate Bill 5 during the legislative process.
Instead of working constructively with legislative leaders, union bosses and special interests continue to spread misinformation about Senate Bill 5 (Issue 2), and have forced us into a costly campaign to preserve a crucial reform for Ohio.
