1) VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! The NW Ohio Conservative Coalition once again has a booth reserved for Harrison Rally Days in Downtown Perrysburg on Saturday September 20, 2014 from 9:30am – 5pm. We need volunteers to help us set up our booth (9-9:30am), staff the booth (from 9:30am – 5pm in 2 hour shifts) and take down to the booth (4:30-5pm). There is also a parade which kicks off at 10am. We are planning on walking in the parade – our focus for signage will be on opposition to Common Core and promoting performance audits for local school districts and governments. If you are interested in walking in the parade or volunteering to staff the booth, please email Linda Bowyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her (419) 276-0664.
2) You’re invited to the first Toledo Tea Party Monthly Meeting to learn about conservative issues, and more importantly, what you can do to participate and make a difference (www.toledoteaparty.com).

Lorna Mclain from School Choice Ohio will be addressing the many aspects of School Choice programs in Ohio.
Lorna works to inform families across the northern part of the state about school choice. Her network of community organizations, schools and ambassadors is spreading the word about school choice.
“It is important for families to have a role in their child’s education. Every family should have the right to choose their educational option. I love knowing that I can choose where my child attends school.”
There are two million school children who live in Ohio, and each one of their families needs to know about their school options. We are building a network that can reach every Ohio family to inform them about the education options that are available for their children. A big part of making that goal possible is the work of supporters across the state who help us spread the word.
Our supporters work hard. They join us at events, contact their legislators, and share how school choice has impacted their personal lives. They change lives by informing their friends, family members and neighbors about Ohio’s school options. School choice supporters make a difference.
3) Opposition to Common Core From Sue Larimer
Time is precious. The Ohio School Board Association pulled out big guns in last week’s proponent hearings. Perrysburg’s own board member, Walt Edinger, sent in a written testimony in support.
This is grass roots at its best. Huffman’s and Thompson’s bill, HB 597, has now received national attention and support as an excellent exit strategy from Common Core.
Let’s do our part and let our representatives know. Sick of doing that with no results? I understand. Now is NOT the time to give up. We’re too close. PLEASE read the article associated with this link below and do your part to rid us of Common Core.
Thanks in advance for your efforts. This must be done ASAP please. We MUST get this done!
