We all know there’s a presidential race going on. Many of us know congressional races are happening. But all too often voters stop and drop off from voting down-ballot. Yet many of these down-ballot races impact your life every day.

The down-ballot choices you make for offices like the state legislature, city council, county commission, state supreme court, board of education, sheriff’s department and district courts determine kitchen table policies that have the most impact on your daily life.

It’s inevitable: At one point or another during an election year, people will reach that point of exasperation when talking to someone about the candidates. It might be at a family reunion or on Facebook. It could even be in the parking lot of a grocery store. Insults will fly. You’ll be shocked by the utter unwillingness of the other person to see reason. And you’ll be tempted to say that you will never talk about politics again

But Stop!
Whoever is elected will make decisions that will directly affect our lives. From the president to city council, these representatives decide how tax dollars are spent, what laws are passed, what laws are repealed, etc. They set the direction of our communities and country. Talking about elections is, in fact, one of the most important conversations we can have with one another.

Forget Personalities and ‘Likeability’ – Who Will Lead and Who is Best on the Issues Critical to American Working Families?

Presidential political campaigns in the age of the 24/7 news cycle can be quite distracting. The media often supplies saturation coverage on inconsequential stories unrelated to the issues that directly affect our families such as fair trade, wealth inequality, the right to organize, and affordable higher education. Complex, but nonetheless critically important issues, just can’t seem to get traction in this environment.

We’ve gathered some of the most interesting Tweets from the debate last night >>> 

Donald Trump is a salesman and in 2016 he’s selling hate. He’s branded Mexicans rapists and wants all Muslim-Americans to be registered in a database. When he attacks groups, it’s easy to forget he’s attacking real people, real UAW members. Here are two UAW brothers talking about what it’s like to live in the world Trump is creating...

When you cast your vote for president, your ballot will show a choice for our next president. The nominees from the two major parties and those representing the Green and Libertarian nominees have spent a lot of time addressing voters under age 35 because they’re an important voting bloc in this election. Young voters face deep concerns particular to their demographic such as repaying skyrocketing college debt, finding a good-paying job to start a family with and feeling engaged in one of the most divisive election campaigns in our country’s modern history. Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate and will find commonsense solutions to those problems. She’s the best choice if you want a president who stands with Americans who work hard to support their families and want fair wages and benefits in return. Clinton understands that young people want a leader who fights against trade deals like the TPP (Trans- Pacific Partnership) because it benefits corporate profits at the expense of workers’ wages and the environment.

If Portman and Trump had it their way, 30,000 auto-industry jobs might have never returned.

Innovation Ohio has just released a new report on the success of the auto rescue.  Its findings demonstrate that while it was characterized as a “lousy deal for Ohio” by Rob Portman at the time of its implementation, the auto bailout has in fact been a resounding success. Indeed, the auto industry is now thriving and is as integral to Ohio’s economic success as ever.
