Gearing up for Issue 2 vote, SB5 opponents open local HQ

Annie Zelm • Oct 4, 2011 at 2:02 PM

With Election day about a month away, union workers and public employees have opened a local headquarters as they set out to convince residents to vote "No" on Issue 2. We Are Ohio opened Monday at 913 W. Washington St. in Sandusky. 

While the group's members are going door to door and working the phones to garner support for their cause, supporters of Senate Bill 5 are also launching ad campaigns that say the bill puts public employees' wages and benefits in line with those of private-sector workers.

Among the public employees leading the fight against Senate Bill 5 are Brian Nitschke, 42, an orchestra teacher for Sandusky Schools, and Glenn Szatala, 49, a Sandusky firefighter.

Pick up Tuesday's Register to read what Nitschke and Szatala have to say about battle.
