Education Ballot Initiative Rollout.

I attended the press conference in Columbus announcing the rollout of the proposed ballot initiative to reform school funding. Good rollout, lots of people, lots of press. I got some less-than-stellar video and my computer won’t talk to my video cam, but if I can make it happen I’ll get some video up.

In the meantime, you can check out the website for the effort. The committee is actually called Campaign for Ohio’s Future, but they are doing business as Getting It Right for Ohio’s Future. Right now the website isn’t flashy, but it has decent content to start off with, including the ballot language.

Unfortunately the early reviews have been – mmm – tepid? Today’s Dispatch preview was all people saying “Hated it!” Some criticisms are colorable, some I think not so much.

More to come.

Coughlin and Plusquellic opposed.
Strickland has objections to it.
Big city mayors opposed.

Huge tax hike needed.


Sending it to the voters is the last thing you want. They will cream this thing and then it's all over.

Thanks Scott. It's a lotta language!
