Letter: Issue 1: Get rid of outside influence by voting no

Why would anyone believe the promoters of Issue 1? Their contention is to promote a supermajority of voters to change the Ohio Constitution based on outside influence. We already have too much outside influence, not only on issues but also for state and federal candidates. After all the posturing of saving over $20 million on special elections, just a few months ago they decided that one more special election is needed to save the state from total ruin. Why would the supporters of Issue 1 want five or 10 percent of the voters to decide this issue if they want to promote fairness and truly representative elections?

The only fair way to decide constitutional issues would be voting on any issues in the November general election.

Join me in voting no on issue 1. Voting no will stop minority rule in Ohio!
