Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio Liberty Council announced today that it is changing it's name to Ohio Liberty Coalition after a unanimous vote by its Board at it's April meeting. Tom Zawistowski, President of the OLC explained, "For over two years there have been complaints from another conservative organization, whose name is the Liberty Counsel, that our name - Ohio Liberty Council - was confusing to the public. The Liberty Counsel is a non-profit public interest law firm which is based out of Orlando, Florida. After months of discussions to address the issue, it was mutually agreed that we could clear up any confusion in the public's mind if we just changed the last word of our name from Council to Coalition. Therefore, effective immediately, the Ohio Liberty Council is now Ohio Liberty Coalition and our new web address will be www.ohiolibertycoalition.org." The phone numbers and mailing address for Ohio Liberty Coalition will remain the same. For a period of time, people accessing the previous web address will be redirected to the new web address and directed to update their bookmarks. All of the organization's email addresses will have to change to the new domain. Our new facebook page is www.facebook.com/OhioLibertyCoalition while our Twitter address remains @OhioLiberty. The Ohio Liberty Coalition is a coalition of Liberty group leaders whose purpose is to unite conservative grassroots organizations for greater effectiveness in the state and nation, and to provide resources for member organizations to strengthen their groups. The OLC currently has over 75 liberty-minded groups across Ohio who are members of its coalition.
Because changing the name is what the problem was all along...
