In less than a week, Ohioans will decide the fate of Issue 2, which asks unions to pay their fair share in solving the state’s budget woes. A yes vote on Issue 2 will allow local governments to balance their budgets without raising taxes. Unfortunately, Lancaster Mayor David Smith is calling for a multi-million dollar income tax hike for Lancaster, rather than reining in the spiraling costs of public sector compensation by supporting Issue 2.

No matter where you reside in Ohio, please take a moment to send an email to Mayor David Smith below and tell him that you reject the layoffs and tax increases he supports for all of Ohio. Let Mayor Smith know that Issue 2 is the best way to reform local governments and get Ohio back to work.

You can also call Mayor Smith at 740-687-6600 and tell him YES on Issue 2 and NO on job crushing tax increases.
