ATLANTA - Chase Oliver will do hands-on activism between appearances at a Libertarian Party of Ohio conference this weekend in Dayton. Oliver will help fight Issue 1, which would allow 40 percent of voters to stop amendments to the state constitution that a majority support.
“I am excited to travel to Ohio this week and meet voters as well as work with local activists to oppose Issue 1,” says Oliver, 37, Rolling Stone’s “Most Influential Libertarian” and Libertarian presidential hopeful. “We should make it easier, not more difficult for the government to be held to account by the citizens. This is why we should oppose Issue 1 and any other measure that would seek to entrench power and make it harder to change.”
The Libertarian Party of Ohio is sponsoring a political training event for Region 3, which also includes Kentucky, Michigan, and Indiana. Trainers include officeholders, candidates, and state and national leaders within the party.
Combining his passion for activism at campaign stops and appearances, he will join Ohio Libertarians and other activists, reminding voters about the special election on August 8. Oliver will participate in a phone banking event Friday, hosted by the League of Women Voters, he will also meet members of the Ohio Commission to End Qualified Immunity, one of Oliver’s signature issues.
