Vote NO on Issue 20
As a Lorain County citizen, we have all received the mailers regarding Issue 20, encouraging us to vote yes. However, keep this in mind:
The increase in staffing (four new commissioners, their staff and appointed new positions) will add approximately $2 million per year, according to the State Auditor's Association numbers.
The map is split in such a way that voting power is transferred to townships rather than larger towns (Avon, Avon Lake, Amherst, Lorain, etc.). Look at the mailed map and how Lorain City was split to see how this would happen.
The issue replaces people who are elected and can be voted out with people appointed by the board. This guts the sheriff department and county auditor offices. (All of the candidates for sheriff oppose this plan.)
There are other real issues with the plan and it’s an attempt to get around the repeated successful attempts to consider charter government, which would require an ELECTED county executive.
It is for these reason that we are urging citizens to vote NO on Issue 20.
The Avon Democratic Club educates and mobilizes like-minded residents to elect and hold accountable candidates and elected officials who uphold the values of the Democratic Party, including: promoting equality across all heritages and belief systems; ensuring liberty and justice for all citizens; securing affordable healthcare, guaranteeing reproductive rights and combating climate change.
We Believe ...
Local politics creates the foundation for change on a national level.
Every person in this nation should be treated with dignity and respect.
Health care is a right for all.
The hard work of middle class families should be rewarded.
Our schools and streets should be free from gun violence.
A woman’s decisions about her own body are hers to make.
We are working together to build a bright future for everyone. We are fighting for the soul of our country, for the heart of our democracy and for America’s place as the land of opportunity for all.
The core of our democracy is the right to vote and equal access to the ballot box. The Avon Democratic Club is committed to free and fair elections.
