Thank You

Friends,

We can now report to you that Issue 1 is on its way to passage with 65 percent of the vote.

We want to thank you for all your good work to get this essential issue passed. Nothing can be taken for granted in today's electoral environment, which made it important to put on a credible and energetic campaign. Thanks to your efforts and those of your colleagues around the state, we got our campaign messages out.

Now members of the Issue 1 constituency can return to doing what they do so well – financing and building infrastructure improvements in every corner of Ohio.

Once again, thanks for your effort and support.
