While we squabble about gay-baiting candidates for Secretary of State, political cover, and serious journalists, there is also important work that must be done:

WHAT: Tribute to Senator Kennedy: Health Care Rally and Action Fair
WHERE: The Lausche building at the Ohio Expo Center – Ohio State Fairgrounds, 717 E. 17th Ave., Columbus, OH 43211
WHEN: Tuesday, September 1, 7 PM
SPEAKERS: Ohio AFL-CIO President Joe Rugola, SEIU nurse Barb Montgomery, US Action President William McNary, Ohio Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher, Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, Senator Sherrod Brown, Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy and Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman

I’ve been invited to this in at least 4 different ways, so there is a very big push to turn out progressives to this event. Along with the above, Organizing for America will also have their “Health Insurance Reform Now” Bus Tour there.


Organizing for America – 1,018 signed up
Progress Ohio – 3 signed up
Progress Ohio (Facebook) – 82 signed up

It should be a good turnout and I hear CNN will be there. Now is the time to step up and be seen and heard on healthcare. See you there.
