Ohio Dems Pepper and Turner to present new strategic plan on Feb. 10
David Pepper, new Ohio Democratic Party (ODP) chairman, and Nina Turner, former state senator and ODP chair of political engagement, will detail their “Main Street Initiative” on Tuesday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m., at the Cleveland Heights Community Center.
The initiative is the ODP’s new strategic plan to provide direct support to local candidates and staff, including financial investments to targeted races, messaging, voter contact, fundraising training, and access to cutting-edge technology and data.
According to Pepper, “This strategy and fund represent our commitment to build this party from the local level, where it all begins.”
Turner said, "As Democrats, it’s our responsibility to care about the welfare of all Ohioans, and our Main Street Initiative is an opportunity to put our values into action."
The meeting—hosted by the Cleveland Heights Democrats, Shaker Heights Democratic Club, Cleveland Stonewall Democrats, Northeast Ohio Chapter of the Young Black Democrats and the Cuyahoga Democratic Women’s Caucus—is free and open to the public.
