Housing Needed for Campaign Staff/Volunteers

2012 Campaign staff are pouring into Columbus and they need housing!  Some will be here for a weekend, some for a week, some for several weeks, and some until the election!  They will be working with the Obama campaign, the Sherrod Brown campaign, and ODP. There are also interns who need housing, as well as international and out-of-state volunteers. This is a great way to help the campaign without ever leaving your home or writing a check. It's a very rewarding experience and really is a lifesaver for those you take in!

Join UAPA as We Celebrate July 4th and Watch UA's Parade!

Waving American FlagUAPA got its start in 2004 as UA for Kerry, and it was at the Upper Arlington parade that year when the majority of the good citizens of our fair city learned of our existence -- some happily, some not. Come park your folding chair on the lawn where it all started at the home of John and Jane Hastie, located on the corner of Brandon Road and Northwest Boulevard.

Time is Running Out! We Need Your Signature by July 1!

Imagine 10 more years of rigged Republican districts that virtually guarantees Republican one-party rule in Ohio for the next decade. Let that sink in.

That's what the currently redrawn district map virtually guarantees --- one-party Republican rule in Ohio through 2020. It's as simple as this:  unless this redistricting petition gets enough signatures to get on the November ballot, Ohio Republicans will have the upper hand at the state and federal levels. The only recourse to challenge their misguided legislation will be an endless 10 more years of petitions, ballot issues and fund raising for long-shot Democratic candidates.

If you signed a petition last fall, you have not signed this current petition and we need your signature! Click 'Read More' to see where you can sign the petition:

If you don't want to write letters yourself, but could help organize others to produce letters, WE WANT YOU! Volunteer to be Letters to the Editor Coordinator.

Action Item: Laptops Needed for 2012 Campaign.

We need laptops to do virtual phone banks, and not every phone banker comes equipped.

Do you have a laptop you're not using that we could borrow for the 2012 campaign?  Or would you like to make a donation of one of the cheap-cheap laptops from Microcenter ($250 gets a reconditioned laptop now) to help our cause?
