Support Issue 1
I am writing regarding an issue of the utmost importance. We need to unite in support of Ohio Issue 1 in the upcoming election. Don't know what Issue 1 is? You may remember my extremely successful Third Frontier initiative. With the help of my fellow travelers in the Ohio Legislature such as Michelle Schneider I was able to push $1.6 billion in new state debt for a high-tech jobs initiative.
Ohio's Issue 1 will renew my wildly successful Third Frontier initiative with $700 million in new state debt. If my time as Governor has taught you anything its that higher debt and massive government intervention in market economics is a good thing. In fact, it's vital to economic stability.
The results speak for themselves! Ohio's economy has never been better. Ohioans from Cincinnati to Cleveland and everywhere in between are inundated in new high-paying, high-tech jobs. Can't you see it? Our fine state's unemployment rate is nearly non-existent.
My high-tax allies in the newspaper editorial boards are doing their duty by endorsing this important big government initiative. They have been bolstered by loyal tax and spend Republicans from all corners of the State. I need you to do your part to support the effort. Please call all of your chronically unemployed friends, family, and neighbors and encourage them to vote YES on Issue 1. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the University of Cincinnati received a $36 million grant that created zero jobs thanks to the first Third Frontier effort. Perhaps with another $36 million they could create one or two additional jobs on top of the original zero. I can't think of a better way to leverage your hard-earned tax dollars. We must have this initiative. Our state's future depends on it!
Yours in taxes,
Governor Bob Taft
