By voting in this election you get to send a message about Northwest Ohio. The Library, the Metroparks, Tarta and COSI are all asking for your continued support.
Voting FOR taxes is hard to do. We all know we're facing a difficult economy and an uncertain future.
But that future does not get brighter if we begin eliminating the things successful cities have. Great libraries, beautiful Metroparks, efficient public transportation and educational science centers are symbols of vitality.
I know we can rationalize a "no" vote. However, voting against these levies just may become the same as voting "no" for the future of this region.
And that is a message that will be heard loud and clear.
