Montgomery County Officials Make Plea for 3rd District

DAYTON, Ohio — Officials in Montgomery County are asking Gov. John Kasich to leave the 3rd Congressional District intact during the redistricting process.

Montgomery County commissioners are concerned that any further reductions of the district would negatively affect the city of Dayton and surrounding county. According to the Dayton Daily News, the commissioners believe the county would best be served by one member of Congress who could fully focus on the community and its issues.

In the 2001 redistricting, the 3rd District lost 22 percent of itself to the 8th District.

Board decides ballot language of SB5 referendum

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio voters opposed to a new collective bargaining law that limits public employee unions will get to vote "no" at the ballot box this fall, following a decision Wednesday by the state Ballot Board.

 The decision followed hours of negotiation by Secretary of State Jon Husted, the board's Republican chairman. It echoes years of Ohio ballot tradition, but also counts as a victory for the law's opponents. Voters against or confused by an issue tend to vote against it.
