AFP-Ohio Kicks Off Taxpayer Town Halls This Tuesday in Cincinnati

CINCINNATI- Americans for Prosperity-Ohio kicks off a statewide series of Taxpayer Town Halls this Tuesday, August 16th in the greater Cincinnati area. The Eastern Hill Community Tea Party is partnering with AFP-Ohio on this town hall, which will feature former Cincinnati City Council member Jeff Berding, Buckeye Institute President Matt Mayer and local business owner Dan Regenold 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 Eastern Hills Community Tea Party encourage citizens to attend the town hall.

"Our Taxpayer Town Halls will dispel myths and misinformation being spread by special interests and union bosses 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."
