Some constituents would like to have a word with you about SB 5.

Several hundred to be exact:

Dayton No on 5 Dayton No on 5 (2)Braving a cold rain, the Dayton Daily News  reported that “hundreds” of SB 5 opponents protested outside of the Dayton Convention Center this morning as State Senator Peggy Lehrer (R-Kettering) held a constituent meeting outside.

Be sure to check out their slideshow from this morning’s rally.  (Thanks to a loyal reader for providing us with today’s pictures!)

I don’t care that the GOP contains the redistricting pen.  They’re going to have a hard time drawing a district that keeps Senator Beagle in office if he supports SB.

Incidentally, all of this could have been preventable if we hadn’t lost two seats in the Senate last November.  Consider getting involved and donating to help elect Democrats to the State Senate as well.

    All this could have been prevented totally if … I won’t go there because some grumpy-ass person is likely to say “Get over it.” No. YOU “get over it.” Why should I ‘get over” critical mistakes made on OUR side that have now given us crap we wouldn’t be dealing with if Ted Strickland was still governor? And yes, Ted is responsible for what could have prevented it, so obviously I’m torn in two over this.

    Every once in a while, the electorate is suddenly reminded to “think globally and act locally.” There’s never an “off-year” and your local representatives, including county and township administrators, judicial races, and even your county auditor affect every realm of our lives every day.

    I’m certain I’m preaching to the choir that may read this blog, but dammit, if this doesn’t prove what grassroots really is, I’m not certain what would.
