Senate Bill 5 has become a lightning rod for labor unions in Ohio, overshadowed only by the even more intense battle in Wisconsin. This Saturday we are privileged to have as our Guest Speaker, a national leader in the battle against union power, Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Committee and the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. Don't miss the opportunity to meet a national leader, ask questions and to get informed! The breakfast meeting is this Saturday, Feb. 26th, 8:30 AM at the Coppertop restaurant, 5740 Center Road (State Route 303) between Brunswick and Valley City. Print the attached flyer to invite your friends and neighbors. We hope to see you this weekend!In God we trust,

We are nearly out of time.
We need to fill the vacant seat in the Ohio House of Representatives, 76th District, with one of our own. Read the following:
Ohio House Speaker William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) and members of the House Republican Caucus announced the slate of applicants who have applied for appointment to the vacant 76th House District seat. Rep. Cliff Hite, who had held the seat, was appointed to the Ohio Senate 1st District a few weeks ago.Representative Matt Huffman (R-Lima), who will chair the screening panel, will be joined by Reps. Barbara Sears (R-Sylvania), John Adams (R-Sidney), Lynn Wachtmann (R-Napoleon), and Jeff McClain (R-Upper Sandusky) as panelists."We have an impressive list of elected officials, teachers, and other qualified applicants from which to choose from," Rep. Huffman said. "My colleagues and I on the panel will carefully consider how each candidate will best serve the citizens of the 76th House District."Applicants for the 76th House District seat include:Stephen Christopher Eugene Foster Steven Gossard Shane McClelland Lucas Opperman Mark Polelle Michael Recker Jackson Smith Robert Sprague Brandon Tisci Merle Walter, Jr. The screening panel will meet with all interested applicants on Monday, January 31, 2011 in Findlay at the CentraComm Communications facility, located at 323 South Main Street, 4th Floor.
It is our belief that the decision will be between Steve Christopher and Robert Sprague. Steve is a founding member of a Tea Party and has been in the forefront of our movement continuously for the past year. Mr. Sprague's father has been a consistent donor to the local GOP.
Because the decision may be made on Monday, we urge you to contact the Representatives by email or by phone TODAY to make your recomendation. Their aides will get your message to them Monday morning. If you are able to attend the Panel meeting in Findlay, that would be very influential especially if your Representative is a member of the Panel. If you have already written a letter of recommendation, please send a copy to Steve at email@example.com.

Following is a Bio for Steve Christopher:
Steve was born in Ohio and has lived in Hardin County most of his life. His parents were factory workers and part-time farmers, and Steve was raised with a strong work ethic. Steve has been married to Jill, his college sweetheart, for 25 years. Jill is a CPA who teaches Accounting at Ohio Northern University.
They have been blessed with three children. Savannah is a fourth-year pharmacy student at ONU, Sarah is a sophomore biology/secondary ed major at ONU, and Noah is a senior in high school at Hardin Northern.
The Christophers live on their family farm, which is enrolled in the Ducks Unlimited/Pheasants Forever/landowner conservation reserve program.
Steve received both his bachelors degree and his law degree from Ohio Northern University and has practiced law in Findlay and, for a period, in Kenton for 25 years. He has also been the acting Municipal Court Judge in Hardin County for the past five years. Steve is an Adjunct Professor at Ohio Northern University. He has done volunteer legal work for the NRA and for Jay Sekulow's group, the ACLJ (a conservative legal group that often fights the ACLU).
Steve is a life member of the National Rifle Association and is a founder of the Hardin County Tea Party. The Christophers are firm believers in the importance of faith, family and traditional values, and attend the New Hope Fellowship church in Kenton.
Following is the Bio for Robert C. Sprague from the City of Findlay.
Robert Cole Sprague is the current City of Findlay Auditor, and he previously served as the City Treasurer. Robert grew up on Third Street in Findlay, and graduated as valedictorian of Findlay High School. He went on to Duke University, where he graduated c** laude with a bachelor of science in engineering. Out of college, he joined the consulting firm of Ernst & Young and has worked or lived in Atlanta, Oklahoma, New York City, Hong Kong, Singapore, London, Mexico City, and Houston. Robert left Ernst & Young to start his own consulting firm in Atlanta focused on Solomon Software, a Findlay-based software accounting package. After several successful years running his own consulting firm, he returned to school to earn his masters in business from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, graduating 7th in his class. He currently resides in Findlay with his wife, Amanda, and their three sons.
In politics, timing is everything. The time to act on this one is NOW.
Join us today!!!
First, a quick reminder of the Organizing for Action workshop at the Headquarters this coming Thursday evening Jan 13th, at 7 PM. We will be talking about some of the things we would like to do over the next two years, and how to get started.
Second, we have settled on the venue for our next three public forum breakfasts (and possibly longer). The site chosen is Coppertop at Cherokee Hills. A copy of the breakfast menu is at this hyperlink: http://www.cherokeehillsgolf.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=81&Itemid=1. And here is a detailed map to the location at 5740 Center Road in Valley City.
The restaurant opens as early as 7 AM, and our public forum will be from 8:30 - 10 AM as always. We encourage people to come and eat before the meeting, or stay and eat afterward. Admission to the meeting room is $5 apiece and includes beverage service for those who have not had breakfast. Those who have had breakfast should bring their receipt (or beverage container) with them, and pay the reduced admission price of $3.25. We presume but need to confirm that those who have paid the $5 admission and then have breakfast afterward, will not have to pay for a beverage with their meal. Octagenarians and special guests will be on our tab.
Our goals were to keep the total cost for breakfast equal or less than that of our original venue, the Golden Corral, make our meetings available at a lower cost to those uninterested in buying a breakfast, being centrally located, convenient to the audience, and flexible to handle crowds small and large. We believe that the new site provides all these, plus opens up the potential for special meetings during weekdays and evenings.
Third, some of us who weren't able to attend the Renacci Town Hall, check out this video:
We hope to see you soon! Stay warm!

When Bob Gibbs was elected to Congress in Ohio's 18th Congressional District his seat became open. By law the seat will be filled by appointment by the Senate Republican Caucus.
A Selection Committee in the Ohio Senate has narrowed the field of candidates down to four, and this coming Tuesday January 11 the Committee is scheduled to conduct a final interview of the four candidates and recommend one of the four to the Senate Republican Caucus for a vote. That vote will be the appointment.
The four candidates are Matt Miller, Larry Obhof Jr., Robin Hovis and Chuck Calvert.
Who are these candidates? Larry Obhof is a young attorney with impressive credentials, who is a member of Recharge Medina and is supported by that group. Recharge Medina consists of the conservative members of Medina County Central Committee and many of Medina's elected officials. Robin Hovis is Holmes County GOP Chairman, and a member of the state Board of Education. Chuck Calvert is a former two-term state legislator from Medina with a conservative voting record. He came out of retirement a couple of years ago to be appointed to the state Board of Elections, which is charged with upholding election laws and punishing voter fraud. Unfortunately he is being backed by the Medina County GOP Chairman that lit a fire under Betty Sutton's base last year with the injudicious and untimely remark about making her go back to the kitchen.
Matt Miller ran in the Primary against Jim Renacci, for the opportunity to oppose John (Pelosi's Puppet) Boccieri in the 16th Congressional District. We were very fortunate in having two such great candidates running a clean, issues based campaign in the Primary, and after Renacci won Miller immediately endorsed Renacci and helped him with his campaign. That's the way it is supposed to be. Not many would know, but Matt Miller even came up from Ashland unannounced to work our phone bank on Renacci's behalf.
Matt Miller has attended our meetings on his own initiative many times, and has always been responsive whenever we have called upon him. He always subordinates his own personal interest, in order to serve others. At our meeting this morning he rose to speak, not on his own behalf, but to make sure everyone knew about the March for Life in Cleveland and in Washington this month, and how to catch a bus for the one in Washington. He is a class act and a solid conservative that we can count upon to work hard and represent us well.
Contacts with those on the committee do have an effect and e-mails may be more effective than phone calls as the e-mails are sitting on their desks in the morning.So, if you want to have your opinion heard, now is the time to contact OR re-contact those on the committee. If you have already contacted them, you can certainly send a follow-up e-mail or phone call, have a family member contact them.
