With the recent information about the Issue 6 campaign what legislation would you favor to increase transparency in the financing of issue campaigns and referendum campaigns?
We must require full public disclosure of financial contributions to these campaigns.Dark money has no place in government of the people; the recent corruption exposed in the HB 6 episode demonstrates that meaningful campaign reform is essential to restoring public trust in the General Assembly.

The 2020 Census has been disrupted by the Pandemic, what steps will you advocate during the redistricting process to make sure that the population counts are accurate? 
Since the census is a Constitutionally required process of the federal government, continuous and frank discussion with the Census Bureau regarding their methodology and handling of undercount scenarios in areas of Ohio must take place. True representative government demands accuracy in counting constituents; “close enough” is not acceptable.

Would you support reform of the restrictions placed on the referendum process to make it easier for citizens to place issues on the ballot. If not, why not?
I would support making it easier for citizens to exercise their right of initiative and referendum. However, I would also take a careful look at more reform and transparency to curtail efforts by special interests that try to “buy” new sections in the Ohio Constitution for corporate monetary benefit.
