R.I.P. Dave Girves

Central Ohio progressives have lost a tireless activist, and for many, a good friend when Dave Girves passed away on January 16, 2015. His organizational skills, energy and kindness will be much missed.

Cathy Levine of Universal Health Care Action Network (UHCAN) remembers Dave:
