Sorry GovernorGovernor Kasich is coming to West Chester on Monday, October 13 for a campaign stop.  I have gotten word that there plans to be a protest of this event, asking the Governor to clarify his position on Common Core.

Over the weekend, the Governor was on a Sunday show with WHIO in Columbus.  He was asked, if he supported the repeal of Common Core.  Again Governor Kasich didn’t answer the question and moved to his canned comments on ‘Higher Standards’.

I wrote a piece yesterday giving detailed explanation why Common Core are not the higher standards that Ohioans should be embracing.  Please read and share this article.

The Governor will be in West Chester on Monday.  If you want to join the protest and ask the Governor why he isn’t taking a stand on Common Core, join us.

We the People Convention 2014

We the People Convention LogoThe We the People Convention will be held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus on Saturday, September 20, 2014 and is open to ALL citizens. Besides providing nationally recognized speakers talking about the important issues of the day, this year’s Convention is providing training for potential candidates and citizens who wish to be trained for various campaign staff positions through a partnership with the Leadership Institute in preparation for the 2015 and 2016 elections. Tickets for both the Convention and the Leadership Institute training can be purchased at www.WethePeopleConvention.org.

To order tickets, visit http://www.wethepeopleconvention.org/tickets/ .

The one day convention, sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, will be host to several speakers including:

  • Congressman Jim Jordan
  • Buckeye Institute’s Greg Lawson
  • Frederick Douglass Foundation Founder Dr. Tim Johnson
  • Tea Party Patriots’ Bill Norton
  • Turning Point Founder Charlie Kirk
  • Rob Ponder from WHBC
  • State Representative John Adams

In addition to the speakers at We the People, there is an opportunity to be trained by the Leadership Institute.  Two of the biggest problems we have are not enough people to run for elected office and not enough volunteers.  The Leadership Institute will be at the convention giving classes on the skills to get attendees ready to run for office and support those running.  You will learn skills like fundraising, building coalitions, managing volunteers and working with the media.

Join us Saturday, September 20th.

“We Now Have A Smart Exit Strategy from Common Core”

From our friends at Ohioans Against Common Core

Pioneer Institute, an independent think tank from Boston, has lead the charge on research related to Common Core and its progeny. Their research is impeccable, resulting in numerous articles and white papers that serve as highly respected reference sources for state level repeal efforts and legislation.

This past week, Pioneer’s Executive Director, Jim Stergios, released an article “We Now Have a Smart Exit Strategy from Common Core“. The smart exit strategy? Ohio’s HB597. To receive such an endorsement from an organization of this caliber should energize every Ohioan in this fight. We have the plan, now let’s get all boots on the ground and see it through.

NEXT HEARING THIS THURSDAY AT 10:00 AM
