Ohio Sportsmen Invited to Statewide Candidates' Reception
The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance (USSA) is hosting a legislative candidate forum to allow Ohio sportsmen to meet with nominees for statewide and local offices including governor.
The reception will be March 14 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Athletic Club of Columbus. The Athletic Club is located at 136 E. Broad St. in downtown Columbus.
Candidates for governor, attorney general, secretary of state and other offices will be on hand to listen to sportsmen's concerns and ideas. Legislative candidates for the Ohio House of Representatives and Senate will also meet outdoorsmen.
"Ohio legislators have worked to ensure that sportsmen's dollars are spent, as intended, on conservation programs, and they have supported legislation to help promote newcomers to join the hunting ranks," said Tony Celebrezze USSA's director of state services. "Lawmakers support these proposals because their sportsmen constituents have expressed their views on these topics. The upcoming forum will provide sportsmen with an opportunity to prepare for future legislative initiatives by educating and discussing issues with candidates."
The 2006 candidate forum comes at an opportune time. Sportsmen can learn candidates' opinions about conservation issues before going to the polls for the primary election on May 2, 2006.
