Paul Hackett on Principles & Values


Ohio Democrats need an 88-county strategy to win elections

The selection of a new Ohio Democratic Party Chair should not be taken lightly. I hope that the Ohio Democratic Party will give the men and women who make up our party the opportunity to be involved in the process. Regional meetings may just be the forum we need to make that possible.

All over this state I meet people who feel forgotten by their party. that the red pigment their town or county represents on a map serves as a stop sign to their party when resources are being handed out. If we fail to compete in every region of this state, we will continue to fail in election after election. This party needs an eighty-eight county strategy for growing our party and building a farm team of candidates. If we ever want to win an election, we must compete in every county, city, town and precinct.

Take back our government from the career politicians

Citing a "call to service" and the need for drastic change in Washington, Paul Hackett, the United States Marine Corps Major and Iraq War Veteran, who stunned the political world with his near win in this summer's Special Congressional Election, formally announced his campaign for US Senate at a press conference today at his Cincinnati home.

"I'm asking all the people of this great state...to consider joining me in the fight to take back our government from the career politicians and their special interest support groups that have hijacked our government and left us with a tangled mess of fiscal irresponsibility, corruption and mismanagement," said Hackett.

Hackett called upon the people of Ohio to stand with him in, what he described as, a fight for the very principles America has always stood for. Principles he sees as under attack from the corrupt special interests and career politicians that control Washington.
