Today we honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We need to dedicate ourselves to continue his campaign for freedom, civil rights, and social justice. For more information, the King Center has a beautiful and informative website about Dr. King.

Big news in Ohio----- Democratic candidate for Ohio Governor, Ed FitzGerald, has chosen his running mate.


Democrat Ed FitzGerald reset his campaign for governor Friday, selecting Dayton-area attorney Sharen Neuhardt as his new running mate....

....FitzGerald's pick telegraphs the likelihood that women's reproductive issues, including abortion, will become a significant campaign issue. Women are another key voting bloc for Democrats. Neuhardt is a past board member of Planned Parenthood of the Greater Miami Valley. Last fall, she helped lead a Columbus protest against abortion restrictions that Kasich signed into law as part of the most recent state budget.

"Looking at what the last state budget did to women’s health care, the state legislature and Gov. Kasich ought to be ashamed of themselves," Neuhardt said.....

It would be great to have a Lt. Governor that would address the needs and concerns of Ohio women. Current Republican Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor is nothing more than a puppet of Gov. John Kasich, who is brought out of her cave only occasionally.
