OEC Action Fund Director Issues Statement on Trump Visit to Ohio


COLUMBUS, OH - Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump held a campaign event today in St. Clairsville, Ohio. In advance of the event, OEC Action Fund Director, Aryeh Alex issued the following statement regarding Donald Trump’s positions on energy and the environment. 

“Donald Trump’s erratic and divisive language is out of step with the values of most Ohioans. Instead of moving Ohio forward, a Trump presidency promises to reverse the progress we’ve made advancing a clean energy economy and addressing climate change.  The Buckeye State is ready to lead America into the 21st Century but Trump’s temperament and lack of judgement puts Ohio’s families at risk and threatens the essential environmental protections that ensure the clean air and water our families depend on.”

OEC Action Fund President Issues Statement on Economy and Environment

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke about her economic vision for the country today at a campaign event at the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center in Columbus. The OEC Action Fund President, Heather Taylor-Miesle issued the following statement after the event.

“This is an incredibly important conversation and I’m glad Secretary Clinton is having it here in Ohio. The buckeye state has long been the backbone of America’s economy and today it is poised to lead the way with cutting-edge clean energy technology. This November, we will all have a serious choice to make - to elect a President that will foster innovation and create opportunities for all Americans to succeed or one who suggests the threat of climate change is a fairy tale and wants to block efforts to build a clean energy economy.”
