The Citizens Grassroots Congress

The Citizens Grassroots Congress
will convene again on
Saturday, February 28
We hope to have the participation of many local individuals and groups to set
a citizen’s agenda for central Ohio.

Why should you attend?

Our public officials guide central Ohio’s policies & progress, but who are they?
A Democratic Columbus City Council who never disagrees on any topic? How many are beholden to the developers — consequently moving Columbus in the sprawl direction?
A Franklin County Commission, who oversees the Board of Elections, and allowed the long lines during the 2004 election?
And, when was the last time you remember being excited about something our state legislature made happen?

At the Citizen’s Grassroots Congress, we will discuss:
Resolutions from local activist groups to better our lives
City Council Watch, or Franklin County Commission Watch group—to monitor, rate, and report on their activities
Parallel City Council or other governing organization
Ballot initiative to enlarge City Council with district representation

We are all responsible for moving central Ohio in the direction of supporting peace, ecologically sound practices, better services, and legislation leaning toward equity and social justice.
If you want to get involved, please join us!
