State Senate candidate Betsy Rader (D) will be joining the KEC breakfast meeting on November 8 to talk about the importance of establishing a rational environmental policy in Ohio that is conducive to the public interest. Fair elections are essential for achieving that goal because big money and special interests have too much sway, gerrymandering has eliminated accountability, and the voice of the people is not being heard, says Rader. She also would like to hear from KEC members and attendees about what is most important to them. Rader is running in District 18, a seat now held by state Sen. John Eklund (R), who is leaving because of term limits. (KEC does not endorse candidates but believes that it is important to hear from them and get to know them.)
Breakfasts are held at Little City Grill at 802 N. Mantua St. every Friday at 8 a.m. Come and join the discussion of this and other items of interest to the environment. Participants order off the menu, so no reservations are needed.
