70 Years ago young men from “America’s Greatest Generation” strapped themselves into aircraft and fought and died for principles they believed in. These men, who were often too young to vote or legally drink, are now in their late 80’s and 90’s. The time to hear their incredible stories and to say thank you is running out.

C.O.R.D. gathers required signatures for initiative ordinance

Citizens Organized for Responsible Development (C.O.R.D.) have gathered 280 signatures, more than the required 175, in support to put their initiative ordinance on the ballot for November. The petitions were handed over to Port Clinton City Auditor, Cole Hatfield, on Tuesday, June 24.

“According to Ohio law, I am to hold the petitions for ten days and then I am to submit a certified copy to the Board of Elections,” said City Auditor Hatfield. “The Board of Elections then examines the petition, checking signatures, which is protocol for every petition, and then a certified letter is sent to me stating the petition’s validity and the initiative will be put on the ballot in November.”
