Spread the News about Vital Public Services

The Ohio legislature is currently negotiating the FY2018-19 state budget bill that will determine funding for vital public services and supports over the next two years.

You can help demonstrate local support for vital public services by sending a letter to the editor of your local newspaper(s).

Use the template below as a starting point for your letter. Your letter will be stronger and more likely to be published if you customize and personalize it. Highlight services and add information specific to your community. Just remember to keep your letter brief -- usually 250 words or less.
