XENIA — The Ohio Democratic Party’s #PeopleFirst tour bus stopped in Xenia this morning with Chairman David Pepper and several Greene County candidates to highlight the importance of voting early and voting Democratic up and down the ballot.
“Democrats’ message is straightforward: In all 88 counties across Ohio, Ohioans want access to quality health care, they want a good education for their kids, they want jobs that pay enough to live on, and they want honest candidates who will end the culture of corruption in Columbus,” said Pepper. “Ohioans want government to put people first again, and that’s what Ohio Democrats are going to do.”
This morning’s news conference was held outside the Greene County Board of Elections, where residents can vote early almost every day from now through Nov. 5. Early vote options cut down lines on Election Day and allow Ohioans to vote on their own schedule.
“I’m a first-time candidate, and I am so proud to be part of the women-based movement happening in Ohio. We’ve knocked so many doors, and at every door we meet people who are hungry for change,” said Kim McCarthy, candidate for Ohio’s 73rd House District. “At a recent public forum, my opponent refused to believe there are Ohioans who are still struggling. That is a clear sign that he is out of touch with the people in my district. That’s why I’m stepping up to represent real Greene County families.”
