2014 Meet the Candidates Potluck Brunch

We had a great turnout at the 2014 Meet the Candidates Potluck Brunch that was held on Saturday, June 14. Headlining the event were Ed FitzGerald, candidate for Governor, and Nina Turner, candidate for Ohio Secretary of State.  But there were many more of our Democratic candidates who took their time to join us on Saturday morning to share their plans to move Ohio forward.

Now it's up to us to support those candidates so they can defeat the Republican lackeys of ALEC, the Koch Brothers, and the 1%.  Learn what you can do over the coming months to help them rebuild the middle class and strengthen the safety net for the poorest among us.

A great place to start is the list of endorsed candidates on the Franklin County Democratic Party's web site. There you will find not only the list of endorsed candidates, but also links to their campaign websites where you can sign up to volunteer and contribute to their campaigns.
