The Republican Liberty Caucus of Ohio will be holding the Ohio Liberty Index Presentation this Saturday, November 14th at 11AM at Williams on the Lake, 787 Lafayette Rd, Medina, Ohio 44256. During this event, the RLCOH will be unveiling two new tools: the Ohio Candidate Liberty Index and the Ohio Legislator Liberty Index. Both will be available at rlcoh.org, and will provide a Liberty Index score to every sitting legislator in the Ohio House and Senate, as well as any Republican candidates for state legislative offices. The legislator scores will be based on votes cast for a selected group of bills, deemed by the RLCOH as having a significant impact on the liberty of Ohio citizens, while the candidate scores will be based on surveys, interviews, and past experience of votes to determine those candidates who are most likely to uphold the liberties of Ohio citizens.
“This will be a game changer in the state of Ohio. We’re filling a significant void in Ohio politics,” says RLCOH Chair, Bill Yarbrough. “In elections, there’s no way to objectively weigh two Republicans facing‐off against each other. And, for all legislators, regardless of party, there is no comprehensive performance tool for voters concerned about liberty issues. It all changes this weekend.”
“The response has been tremendous,” says RLCOH Public Relations Chair Mathew Erickson. “From the candidate side, we have been receiving requests for surveys ever since we announced this new tool, and will be sending all of those out after we finalize the survey. On the legislative side, we’ve heard from many state representatives and senators expressing an interest in how the scorecard will work. And from the liberty minded voters in Ohio, there has been a tremendous interest shown in both tools, and people are really excited that there will finally be SOMETHING available to hold our elected representatives accountable.”
There will be a question and answer period after the presentation, where the attendees will have the ability to ask questions of the presenters that are participating in this event, including Sen. Kris Jordan, Rep. Tom Brinkman, and congressional candidate Matt Lynch and Mark Zetzer. There also be a simulcast of the event available at rlcoh.org/rlcoh-liberty-index-conference where people can watch the event live, and participate in the live Q&A that will take place after the presentation.
