We’ve written several times about the right wing effort the ballot measures to repeal Bowling Green, Ohio’s non-discrimination ordinances. After election day, it was unclear which side had prevailed. But, all the votes have been counted — and our side won on both measures. Via email from One Bowling Green:
Finally. The day for which you’ve all worked so hard, and the day we’ve been anxiously awaiting has arrived. Bowling Green can now truly be called a fair and welcoming community as the votes have been tallied and certified by the Wood County Board of Elections.
YES: 4767 (52.7%)
No: 4284 (47.3%)
Employment, Public Accommodations, & Education
YES: 4635 (51.7%)
No: 4338 (48.3%)
Every single hour, every single conversation, every single dollar raised and spent, and every single action—however small—was a vital part of the victory today.
Congrats, One Bowling Green!
