2018 Membership Drive

UAPA began in 2004 and continues to help elect progressive candidates to all levels of government.  We do this by organizing educational programs, debate watch parties, and our website and newsletter, as well as by notifying volunteers of opportunities to help and providing yard signs and bumper stickers that enable progressives to “take a stand”.  All of this requires effort and money and the UAPA Executive Committee has decided to request annual dues of $25, beginning in May 2016.

News from the 1st year of Trump and the resistance

Does Four Equal Four?

As you know, there are eight candidates running for four positions on the Upper Arlington City Council.

The ballot says to vote for no more than four. However, you are not required to vote for four. In fact, if you feel strongly about one or two of the candidates, it will increase their chances of being elected if you vote only for them. A vote for your fourth choice, a candidate you may be only lukewarm about, counts just as much as your vote for your first choice.

So remember to vote, but vote only for those you want to represent you on Council.

Hillary Clinton Carries Upper Arlington

Although we are all disappointed with the overall results, for the first time ever, a Democrat carried Upper Arlington in a presidential election. In UA, Hillary beat Donald Trump by almost 15 points and by over 3,300 votes. She also carried over 90% of the UA precincts. Certainly, your efforts, and those of other UA Progressives, contributed to this historic local election result.

Recycle your 2016 Yard Signs

RECYCLE LAWN SIGNS

Upper Arlington Progressive Action produced 2,000 UA for Hillary and Clinton/Kaine lawn signs for this campaign. These, along with all the Clinton campaign and down ticket signs, amounts to probably a ton of recyclable metal, cardboard and plastic.

UAPA is working with the city to make sure that as many political signs as possible get recycled.
