I have called and I also sent a “Share Your Idea” stating the same request. Here’s what I wrote:
I’m writing as a resident of Ohio but I also happen to be an elected official (Pepper Pike City Council Member). I appreciate that you are considering Ohioan’s concerns regarding HB 231 and cannot urge you strongly enough to VETO the bill. Everyone knows and many underestimate the extreme value of the tremendous asset we call Lake Erie. Likewise, we know that the states which belong to the Great Lakes Compact trust, rely and depend upon Ohio to make sound, long-term and wise decisions that protect and do not endanger the stability of future generations who will live and need this unique natural resource. Speaking of which, you should consider adding “Natural Resources” to the list of issues at the top of this “Share Your Idea” module. There is no such category right now, and yet don’t we both know how blessed Ohio is with natural resources which we are all charged with protecting, not destroying, abusing or otherwise taking for granted. Thank you for your attention and again, please veto HB 231.
While I’m hearing that a statement from the Governor on this bill may be forthcoming this afternoon, do not rely on others to voice their opinion if you have one to share as well. Critical mass makes a difference.
