AFP-Ohio Continues Statewide Series of Taxpayer Town Halls in Tiffin

TIFFIN- Americans for Prosperity-Ohio continues a statewide series of Taxpayer Town Halls on Thursday, September 1st in Tiffin. The North Central Ohio Conservatives are partnering with AFP-Ohio on this town hall, which will feature Buckeye Institute President Matt Mayer, Seneca County Commissioner Jeff Wagner, and Waterville Mayor Derek Merrin as panelists.

The panel will be moderated by former State Representative and AFP-Ohio Policy Director Seth Morgan, and 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 can help solve these crises.

“Federal and state governments are facing major financial troubles – our local schools and governments are no different," said AFP-Ohio Policy Director Seth Morgan. "Citizens see this every election cycle with endless tax increase proposals throughout the State. Local citizens should have the ability to impact the spending policies of their governments. State Issue 2 is a vote for or against that ability. It is time that citizens take control of their future – learning the truth about State Issue 2 is where to start.”

AFP-Ohio and the North Central Ohio Conservatives encourage citizens to attend the town hall.

"Our Taxpayer Town Halls will dispel myths and misinformation being spread by special interests and union leaders about Issue 2, and will educate citizens about what Issue 2 really does," said AFP-Ohio State Director Rebecca Heimlich. "Issue 2 will help restore fairness, accountability and the voice of the people in how our tax dollars are spent."
