ODP Endorsements​

Important – with three great candidates running this fall, we have the chance to FLIP the Ohio Supreme Court to a Democratic majority. With Justice Jennifer Brunner already on the Court, ODP has endorsed incumbent Justices Michael Donnelly and Melody Stewart, as well as Judge Lisa Forbes. 

In addition, two ballot issues were endorsed: One Fair Wage ($15 minimum wage) and Citizens, Not Politicians (redistricting reform). 

We will be collecting signatures in support of redistricting reform. Andrew Vashchenko is once again serving as the statewide Distributed Organizing Director and we will use the same organization and playbook that was so successful in supporting the Reproductive Rights Amendment. As constitutional members of the Ohio Democratic Party, all laws and restrictions that we are held to extend to our county party. This means that all county parties must operate entirely and exclusively through the ODP’s process of gathering signatures as opposed to coordinating with Citizens not Politicians directly.

For Delaware County, Vice Chair Holly Hanson will be our County Organizing Lead.  Holly will complete training in early February for our county to be an effective partner in this effort. 

There will also be training on how to circulate petitions/gather signatures multiple times per week. Even if someone attended one of our trainings last year for repro, we highly encourage them to do so again for a quick refresher and because a few minor points will differ from our last go around. You can sign up now using this Mobilize link  The first training will take place on February 12th.
