Mayors from the 30 largest cities in the state laid out an agenda they’d like to see Ohio’s next governor and new legislature follow.

The Ohio Mayors Alliance wants a home rule compact and a new state fund to benefit local governments. 

Columbus Mayor Andy Ginther said cities have lost important state dollars. At the same time, he noted more than 86% of the wages in the state are in Ohio’s metro areas.

The Republican candidate for governor has released what he says is a plan to invest in Ohio’s kids, families and future. But Democrats are saying his record says otherwise.

“This is what I’m passionate about. This is what I believe matters most for the future of our state. And it’s why I’m running for governor.”

Tomorrow’s primary results will determine the people who will represent the major political parties in this fall’s races for governor, Congress, the state Legislature and for the Republicans – U.S. Senate. But they could also hint at developments later this year.

Thousands of Ohioans are expected to go to the polls Tuesday to cast their ballots in the primary for governor, U.S. Senator, Congress and state lawmakers as well as a plan to change the redistricting process – and there are nearly 500 local levies and other issues on the ballot.

More than 128,000 Ohioans have already voted early. If you didn't, you’ll have to take care of business at your local precinct. You can find that location on the secretary of state’s website or by calling your local board of elections.
