Rich Cordray Sep 16, 2018 Fundraiser
by Donald Daiker, President Emeritus
Oxford went all out for Rich Cordray, Ohio’s next Governor. A reception for Rich at the home of Sue and Rick Momeyer brought out a record crowd of 175 and a record total of $17,415 for the Cordray-Sutton campaign. In a major address to an enthusiastic crowd, Cordray contrasted his work fighting for the middle class and working Americans against Mike Dewine’s record of supporting the interests of the wealthy, the privileged, and the powerful.
Cordray was appointed the nation’s first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau by President Barack Obama, and in that capacity Rich forced some of the country’s largest financial institutions to pay nearly $12 billion to over 30 million Americans who were cheated or mistreated.
Another highlight of the event were talks by the impressive slate of Democratic candidates for local office:
- Dawn Wojcik for Ohio State Board of Education;
- Susan Vaughn for the Ohio House 51st district;
- Rebecca Howard for the Ohio House 53rd district;
- Dora Bronston for Butler County Commisision; and
- Vanessa Enoch, represented by her campaign manager Cynthia Pinchback-Hines, for the U.S. Congress.
All candidates urged us to vote early.
Early voting begins at the Butler County Board of Elections on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
The Cordray event was sponsored by the Butler County Progressive Political Action Committee and co-sponsored by the Butler County Democratic Party and the Miami University College Democrats. The crowd was notable for the presence of young people–Miami University and Talawanda High School students.
