Where: Chintz Room. 121 South High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215
Time: 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Refreshments will be provided*
Join Generation Opportunity Ohio in welcoming Representatives Bob Hackett (R-74) and Mike Duffey (R-21) as they discuss the importance of Ridesharing in Ohio and House Bill 237 which creates a reasonable statewide standard that would allow companies like Uber and Lyft to operate more freely in the state.
Ridesharing companies in Ohio like Uber and Lyft have innovated and disrupted the status quo in transportation. They offer a competitive alternative to taxi cabs through improved service at a lower cost while also creating jobs for young Ohioans. Unfortunately, under pressure from the taxi lobby, local governments in Ohio are attempting to force ridesharing companies out of business through overregulation.

Learn more about a never ending war. As Westerners, it is difficult to understand cultures where,
religion is government, scripture is law, and the past defines the future. In a country where, history is measured in hourly news cycles and sound bites.
It seems incomprehensible that this conflict between Sunni and Shiite is the work of centuries that began with the death of the Prophet Muhammad in 632.
Former Representative an incredible public speaker and patriot Bob McEwen will help us understand such things as, What is the difference between the Sunni and Shiite philosophies and their ultimate goals? Who comprises the armies of ISIS and ISIL? How do we succeed in defending and defeating those dedicated to this “never-ending war?”
Former Congressman Bob McEwen currently serves as Executive Director of the Council for National Policy (CNP), a nonpartisan, educational foundation organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Its more than 400 members include the nation’s premier conservative leaders in government, business, academia, media, religion, and politics.
