April 19, 2023
Columbus, OH – Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement after statehouse Republicans advanced anti-voter bills that would effectively end citizen-led ballot initiatives in Ohio.
“Republican politicians in Columbus know they’re on the wrong side of the issues that are important to working Ohioans. So now they’re attempting to rig the rules and make it nearly impossible for citizen-led ballot initiatives to pass – all so they can consolidate power for themselves and do the bidding of their special interest pals. We will be working over the coming days, weeks and months to fight these attacks on Ohio voters and keep power in the hands of the people, not politicians,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters.
