This fall we have a great opportunity to invest in the future of the City of Dayton. We can guarantee high quality pre-school for every four-year-old in the City of Dayton, while also investing in our roads, infrastructure, police and emergency services. The Dayton City Commission has voted to place a one quarter of one percent earned income tax increase on the November ballot to fund pre-school for all Dayton four year olds, street paving, park improvements and police services.
Dayton has not had an income tax increase in over 30 years, the State of Ohio has cut $40 million from Dayton’s budget since 2011 and the city has eliminated almost 40% of its workforce. The time has come to invest in an opportunity for all Daytonians.
As you know, there is a lot of non-sense, attack ads and clutter flowing through Ohio politics. That is why we need volunteers to knock on doors and make phone calls to in support of the income tax proposal. Volunteers having one on one conversations with citizens will pass this issue.
I am asking you to attend our campaign launch on Saturday, September 10th, 10 AM at our headquarters, 313 South Jefferson Street in Dayton.
I also need you to sign up to volunteer at www.opportunityforalldayton.com. We need to fill phone banking shifts Monday through Thursday from 5-9 PM, Saturday from 10-2 and Sunday from 12-2 PM. We need canvassers Monday through Thursday, 5-7 PM, Saturdays at 10-2 and Sundays at 12-4.
I hope you can help us with this effort in some capacity. You may also click here to donate to the campaign. Please like our facebook page, Neighborhoods for Dayton’s Future to stay up to date with the campaign. If you have questions, or wish to sign up for a volunteer shift, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dayton needs to seize this opportunity to invest in our future and you can make the difference.
