Open Letter from Jim Petro

Freedom to Marry

Dear Friend:

I have been elected four times to statewide office as a Republican. In each election, I stood-up for what I believed in, and let the chips fall where they may. I’ve won more often than not, and found that standing-up and fighting for what you believe in not only helps make you a stronger person, it can help others in incredible ways.

Recently, I joined FreedomOhio’s Freedom to Marry campaign to help lead the Republicans for Freedom to Marry because I believe we must stand for what is right, and treat other the way we want to be treated. My ultimate goal is to help build support across the state of Ohio to ensure that we provide family security, while respecting and protecting religious freedom.

FreedomOhio’s all volunteer army has led the charge for marriage equality admirably. I am proud of their work, and impressed by their results, which include:

  • Earning majority support from Ohioans for the Freedom to Marry and Religious Freedom amendment according to the Columbus Dispatch/Saperstein Poll.
  • Growing FreedomOhio’s membership from a handful of people to well over 62,000, and now,
  • FreedomOhio has been nominated as the nation’s Most Valuable Campaign at NetRoots.

I’m impressed with people that stand-up and work tirelessly for what they believe in. I hope you will join me in supporting this campaign by casting a vote for FreedomOhio online.

Thank you!
