Bridging the Divide: An Adult Conversation About Ohio Politics, for a Change

Description: Negative ads. Robo calls. Finger pointing. Divisive politics... How did it come to this? Is this what Ohioans deserve for being a key battleground state? With Ohio once again in the spotlight of an important presidential race, the Ohio Historical Society is partnering with No Labels, a Washington-based movement seeking bipartisan political reforms, to host a panel discussion that aspires to be everything the negative TV ads are not. Join us for an adult conversation about Ohio, its rich political history, and an exploration of bipartisanship in an era of sharp divisions. Ann Fisher of WOSU's "All Sides With Ann Fisher" will moderate the discussion with a panel of leading experts experienced in Ohio's political scene, including former Ohio governor Bob Taft; state Senator Charleta Tavares; Tom Suddes, member of the Cleveland Plain Dealer's editorial board; Columbus-based political consultant Gene Pierce; and Jonathan Miller, No Labels co-founder and former treasurer for the State of Kentucky. The forum is open to the public and there is no charge for admission. Those attending will have an opportunity to cast unofficial ballots for president during the forum and a reception will follow.
