Final Weekend Push!
This is the final weekend of the campaign! This is the time to get out and tell your neighbors and friends that there is
a new political party in Ohio that will MOVE OHIO FORWARD in a progressive positive direction! The Green Party of Ohio and
the Spisak/Rios campaign for Governor will move Ohio forward while Ted Stirckland's plan of continuing the status quo and
John Kasich's plan of cutting state programs will turn Ohio backwards!
Support the Green Party of Ohio on November 2nd!
Green Party of Ohio Nominee for Governor Dennis Spisak issued the following statement upon learning
that only the two major parties will be invited to the Gubernatorial Debates this fall in Ohio.
As the Green Party Nominee for Ohio Governor, I think it's a sham that myself and the Libertarian Candidate for Governor
are not invited to the debates. The Ohio Secretary of State has certified that Minor Party candidates are allowed on the ballots
this year, we have paid the same filing fees as Ted Strickland and John Kasich,and had supporters stomp throught the
winter snowstorms to gather thosands of signatures to place us on the ballot.
Ohioans deserve to hear ALL candidates for
Governor speak! Ted and John will sling mud and refuse to answer specially how they will fix Ohio.

Welcome to our web site!
Thank You Voters! On To November!
I would like to thank all the voters of Ohio you voted for us in the May primary. I am proud to be your
Green Party of Ohio Nominee for Governor!
The latest report indicates that over 11 percent of our workers are either unemployed or underemployed. Our
infrastructure, and school and health care systems are failing. We are 8 billion in state debt. The richest of the rich have
become more so while the majority of workers have fallen behind to inflation over the last 20 years.
Sixty-five percent of the people in a recent USA Today poll said they think most members of Congress don't deserve
re-election. The poll shows that only 28 percent of voters identify themselves as Republicans and only 32 percent as Democrats.
Thirty-nine percent have declared themselves as independents.
It is obvious that voters are abandoning hope that either of the two major parties can lead the country in the
right direction. We have been disappointed too many times by both major parties. Ohio voters now have the unique opportunity
to send the message to the rest of the country: We all deserve better!
Ted Strickland has failed Ohio. John Kasich will damage Ohio even further!
This is why we need a Green Party Governor for Ohio! A governor who will fight for single-payer health care,
better school funding, more green jobs for Ohio, and a cleaner environment!
people of Ohio are tired of government controlled by just the Democrats and Republicans. They no longer want the corporate
politics of the two major parties. They want straight talk and straight answers to the problems facing Ohio, more blue-green
jobs and greater employment opportunities, better funding of public schools, a cleaner environment, and single payer health
care for all Ohioans.
These are issues the Democrats and Republicans fail to address and
fail to offer any meaningful solutions too. Our campaign for Governor will address these issues, and will work towards finding
21st century solutions to these 21st century problems.
Green Party Candidates do not accept donations from Lobbyists or Political Action Committees!
Now is the time to show your support for public funding of political campaigns and help Dennis Spisak
win the 2010 election for Ohio Governor!
A key component of Dennis' s strategy to win is the grassroots funding available to statewide
candidates in Ohio. By taking advantage of the Ohio Income Tax Credit for Campaign Contributions, we can prove the viability
of publicly funded campaigns and help bring an end to corporate and special interest control of our elections.
This is not a check-off contribution to a common fund but a full tax credit for campaign contributions
to a specific candidate of up to $50 per individual or $100 for couples filing jointly. This is not a deduction. It is a full
tax credit. You will be reimbursed with a credit towards the taxes you are assessed by the State of Ohio when you file your
2010 return. This is a great way to promote the new priorities that need to be enacted if we are to move beyond the failed
policies of our present corporate funded leadership.
By donating now, you will help Dennis raise funds to run a winning campaign and direct our government
to spend your tax dollars in support of the issues that are important to you and your family.
Please make your check payable to:
Spisak for Governor
548 Poland Ave.
Donate the full amount and receive the full tax credit. Remember to file this donation with your 2010
Ohio Income Tax to receive the 2010 credit. Act now. Don’t let these funds go unused!
Ohio law mandates that your check must have your full name and address on it - PO boxes are not
allowed. Contributions over $100 must include your employer’s name.
Our Candidate for Single -Payer Health Care, Economic Growth, the Environment, and Education that works
Dennis Spisak is an Ohio Green Party's Candidate for Ohio Governor in 2010! It's time we send a Progressive Liberal
to Columbus to bring back Renewable Energy Jobs, Single-Payer Health Care for All, and Clean Fair Elections back to Ohio!
I am running for Governor because I believe we must send a representative to Columbus who will address the issues
facing regular citizens, not Lobbyists or Corporation PACs. My campaign will focus on the issues that Ohioans care about:
affordable health care, economic fairness, quality public education, and bringing renewable energy manufacturing jobs to the
state. I am not afraid to call for Health Care for All Ohioans, economic justice, and nothing less than a renewal of Ohio's
sense of community and promise of equal opportunity for all citizens
Our Lt. Governor Running Mate-Anita Rios
Anita Rios has been an active member of the Ohio Green Party since 2000. She is Co-Convener of the Ohio Green Party
and the Toledo President of NOW. She is a representative to the National Green Party, and a well-respected leader who
has worn many hats at the state level. Anita will bring a unique perspective to the office of Lt. Governor. As the daughter
of migrant farm workers, she learned early in her childhood that hard work, family loyalty, and sacrifice don’t always
guarantee you the American Dream.
She overcame great social inequities through perseverance and determination. She was able to earn a college degree at the
age of 31 and find a better life for herself and those she loves. Because of her long, productive history of activism focused
on social justice, Anita will be a strong advocate for everyone who seeks opportunity for themselves and their children in
this land of plenty.
