The Legislature will play an increasingly vital role in Ohioans’ everyday life.
That’s why it’s so important that Democratic voters on the East Side, Short North and other parts of the Ohio House’s new 3rd District elect Mayo Makinde. He can be trusted to use his experience and dedication to enact progressive laws in the Legislature.
In the Statehouse, Mayo Makinde will fight for average folks – the same folks he’s been fighting for as a community organizer and Democratic activist all these years.
Here are some of the issues Makinde will champion in the Statehouse:
- Economic development
- Affordable housing
- Mass transportation.
- Health care/environment
- Safe neighborhoods
All of these issues are inter-related, Makinde notes. “With a good education, you can get a good job, maybe even start your own business,” Mayo says. “Often, you need good mass transit – buses and rail – to get to that good job.
“A healthy and well-educated community creates a good workforce. That’s why we need universal health care and government-funded education for all.
“And, of course, all of these things depend on our neighborhoods and schools being safe.”
