Ohioans need the right to remove John Kasich from office

To be delivered to The Ohio State House, The Ohio State Senate, and Governor John Kasich

Petition Statement

I support legislation to allow for the recall of state elected officials in the state of Ohio.
There are currently 22,656 signatures. NEW goal - We need 25,000 signatures!

Petition Background

In November 2010 John Kasich was elected governor with less than 50% of the vote. In December he told Ohioans they could either get on his bus or get run over by it.

Turns out he wasn't kidding.

Today, hundreds of thousands of dedicated public employees, including first responders and teachers, have been run over by Kasich's bus. Hard-working, middle class Ohioans have been stripped of their collective bargaining rights thanks to the passage of Senate Bill 5, just so Kasich can preserve tax cuts for the richest Ohioans.

Public employees aren't the only people Kasich has run over. He and the Republican legislature are trying to make it harder for the poor, minorities, students and the elderly to vote. His budget undermines public education, makes college more expensive for working and middle class families, and picks the pockets of libraries and local communities.

In Wisconsin, where a radical, anti-union, anti-middle class governor is following Kasich's lead, people have the right to recall dangerous state officials. Unfortunately, Ohioans don't have the right to run Kasich out of office because state law does not permit recall of the governor and other state officials.

The time has come to change the law! Sign the petition in support of Representatives Mike Foley and Bob Hagan's legislation to give Ohio the right to recall radical extremists like John Kasich. Let's give Ohioans the right to put Kasich back on his bus and drive him out of Columbus.
