Equality Ohio We are getting close. October 16, 2006 3:31 PM

Dear Melody, in 22 days Ohio could feel a lot more like home It is incredible to think that a fair-minded majority in the Ohio Legislature is possibleóbut it is. In two races that werenít even supposed to be close, the pro-equality candidates are now serious contenders according to the latest polls. In one neck-and-neck race, our endorsed candidate would replace Rep. Linda Reidelbach, one of the most vehement anti-equality extremists in the Ohio Legislature (she signed on to the LGBT adoption ban bill last February). We can help bring home a big win for our candidatesóif we put the power of our community behind them. Join us on October 19 for a fundraiser to benefit the Equality Ohio Campaign Fund (EOPAC) with special guests Candace Gingrich and Michael Guinane. Candace is the half-sister of Newt Gingrich, guest starred on Ellen, and was a Ms. magazine "woman of the year". Michael is one of Columbus' leading new artists. His work will be on display and he is generously donating 30% of sales Oct. 19 to EOPAC. Where: home of co-hosts Michael Maly and Greg Espinoza ( directions) When: October 19, 5:30-7:00pm in Columbus Suggested donation: $50 RSVP: Kim Kahlert, Development Director by email: or call 614-224-0400. Platinum-level co-hosts: Bradley Clymer, Michael Council, Jim Elliott and John Behal, Paul Feeney, Rick Gallagher, Lynn Greer, Tom Grote, Tom and Mary Katzenmeyer, Phil Martin, Terry Penrod, Susan Saxbe, Steve Shellabarger, Bruce Soll. All our endorsed candidates are invited to attend (Ted Strickland, Jennifer Brunner, Richard Cordray, David Goodman, Dean Hernandez, Ted Celeste, Judy Hanna, and John Carney). We hope you will come and find out more about why a PAC means power for Ohioís LGBT and allied community. If you cannot attend, you can still help make sure our candidates win by donating to EOPAC ( click here to make a secure donation online). Thank you for all your support and we will continue to keep you updated. Sincerely, Bo Shuff, Political Director Equality Ohio Campaign Fund P.S.: If you prefer to drop a check in the mail, make your check payable to Equality Ohio Campaign Fund, 50 W. Broad St., Suite 1970, Columbus OH 43215. Newest EOPAC endorsed candidates: Judy Hanna is running for State Senator District 22. She is a native Ohioan and has lived in Northeast Ohio for most of her life. She has been married to her husband David for 17 years. Judy has a Masterís Degree in History from Eastern Michigan University and Bachelorís Degree in Business Administration from the University of Akron. She is a mother of two, ages 14 and 17, who attend Revere High School. Hanna has taught higher education for the past seven years; the past five years she has taught History, Humanities, and Women's Studies at the University of Akron. She was Interim Director of the Womenís Studies program and also an elected member of the Faculty Senate at the University, representing all part-time faculty members. She has been involved in a considerable amount of advocacy work and activism, ranging from womenís issues to election reform. Before entering this Senate race, Judy served as the Political Chair for the Ohio Chapter of the Sierra Club. I am John Carney and I am running for Ohio House District 22. I am the eleventh of twelve children and have been married to my wonderful wife, Jennifer Nelson Carney, an attorney at Bricker & Eckler LLP, since 2000. We are expecting our first child in January. I received my undergraduate and law degrees from Ohio State University in 1998 and 2001, respectively. While at Ohio State, I was president of the Undergraduate Student Government for two terms. I am currently an attorney in the Columbus office of Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur LLP where I counsel individual and corporate clients regarding a variety of issues primarily related to health care. I am running for the Ohio House of Representatives, District 22, because I believe it is time to reclaim state government for the hard-working people of Ohio. I, like you, have heard enough about Tom Noe, rare coins, and the unethical behavior that is wasting our hard-earned tax dollars. The time has come to elect government leaders who are interested in working for their constituents and not just for themselves and for those who have paid for political favor. A vote for me is a vote to end partisan government for politicians and by politicians. Equality Ohio Campaign Fund is a political action committee, donations are not tax deductible.
