WHERE: The rally will be held at the Ohio Statehouse beginning at noon. The group will return to Dayton by 5 p.m
WHY: One Ohio Now is organizing the rally statewide in response to the proposed state budget. According to its Web site, One Ohio Now believes “Schools, police, hospitals, libraries, and local services are all endangered. It will take a balanced approach that includes revenues to minimize the impact on Ohioans and ensure our state emerges strong when prosperity returns.
“Action is needed to move Ohio forward and promote the well-being of our communities and their residents. By investing in our families, communities, natural resources, and existing assets, we all share the potential to guide our state to renewed prosperity.”
