Toledo City Councilman Joe McNamara talks about the approximately $35 million in funding cuts his city is facing over a 4 year period because of Gov. John Kasich's budget.
The money saved from these cuts have gone to to pay for income tax cuts that primarily benefit the wealthiest Ohioans. As a result, local governments across the state are struggling to keep critical services available to the community.
Watch this video with Toledo Councilman Joe McNamara asking for your help in calling on Gov. Kasich and his legislative allies to restore local government funding in the state budget.
Once you’ve watched the video, sign the petition on this page to let the governor know how you feel. We cannot afford to sacrifice local roads, safer neighborhoods and the hiring of additional police and fire fighters. Tell him to stand up for the local communities, not income tax cuts for the wealthy.
