October 30, 2012

COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) State Issue 2 will be debated on this week’s Town Hall Ohio, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation’s (OFBF) weekly public affairs radio program.

Issue 2 would change Ohio’s Constitution by changing the way legislative and congressional districts are drawn. The ballot measure would remove the authority of elected officials and give map drawing power to a 12-member commission.

Representing the yes vote will be Dan Tokaji of Voters First Ohio; representing the no vote will be Terry Casey of Protect Your Vote Ohio.

Casey and Tokaji will debate details of the proposal including the process for selecting the commission, the commission’s make-up, the criteria for how districts should be drawn and the costs of the proposal.

The hour-long broadcast airs at 7 a.m. Sunday on 610 WTVN in Columbus and on 10 additional stations in Ohio. Broadcast days and times are available at TownHallOhio.org. The program also will be available for streaming or download at 9 a.m. Monday on this site or as a podcast on iTunes.

Town Hall Ohio allows Ohio Farm Bureau to host thoughtful discussion of timely issues of public importance.  It airs with the financial support of Nationwide Insurance.
