Anti-Corruption U.S. Representative Challenger Steps Into Race Once Again
Columbus, Ohio --- The Franklin County Board of Elections announced on Thursday, February 15, that Joe Manchik has been certified as a candidate for Representative to the United States House of Representatives in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District and his name will be placed on the ballot in the Green Party primary election for both the special election to fill the unexpired term of Representative Pat Tiberi, who resigned in January to take a job as a corporate lobbyist, and the general election to fill the full term as Representative beginning on January 4, 2019.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 19, 2018
In response, Joe Manchik said, "When I am elected, I want to sponsor legislation in the U.S. House that will eventually lead to an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States that will reverse the Supreme Court's 2010 decision on Citizens United v. FEC and totally eliminate the concept of corporate personhood that Citizens United created in America, in order to get the corporate cash out of politics and to end the legalized bribery that is running rampant throughout our entire government today. I want to co-sponsor U.S. House Resolution 676, which will provide universal, single payer, Medicare for all health care for all Americans. I want to sponsor legislation that will initially increase the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour. I want to sponsor legislation that will require The Pentagon to be thoroughly audited, in order to get our out of control military budget under the control of the American people once again and to end America’s ugly wars for oil. I want to sponsor legislation that will once again make a college education free for those Americans who want one and I want to sponsor legislation that will forgive the enormous student debt that millions of Americans are burdened with today. In my view, this is the America that We The People want to see and I want to help make it a reality for everyone.”
Joe Manchik was previously the Green Party candidate for the United States House of Representatives in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District in the 2016 general election.
The primary election in Ohio will be held on May 8 this year.
The special election to fill the seat vacated by Representative Pat Tiberi will be held on August 7 and the general election is on November 6.
