CINCINNATI, Ohio (August 19, 2013) – When Hamilton County Board of Elections officials announced last Tuesday there were technical problems with petitions submitted by first-time candidate Mike Moroski, he was unfazed and immediately sprang into action. In impressive fashion, Moroski and his team came together to collect over 1,000 signatures in five days.
In addition to his team, Moroski also credits the strong sense of community in Cincinnati for the accomplishment, “I have never seen a team mobilize as quickly or efficiently over any cause in my entire life. In only five short days, Team Moroski has gathered over 1,000 signatures on our petitions for the Board of Elections,” he said, “Grassroots Democracy is alive and well in the Ohio River Valley, and I very much look forward to continuing this momentum for the next four years as an elected member of Cincinnati City Council.”
Moroski plans to turn in the petitions Wednesday, August 21, while also holding a press conference to mark the occasion. Instead of a challenge, Moroski sees the experience as an opportunity.
“When we received the news last Tuesday that we were 46 signatures short, Team Moroski immediately mobilized and turned this situation into yet another opportunity to make new friends. We have been all over this great city this past week, and the outpouring of support from voters has proved, yet again, that we will be victorious in November,” Moroski said.
He also took time to express his gratitude, “Thank you to all who have helped gather signatures – particularly the campaigns of Roxanne Qualls, Laure Quinlivan, Wendell Young and Greg Landsman – and community leaders such as Derek Bauman, John Eby, Pete Witte, Leslie Rich, Nikki Mayhew, Evan Hennessy, Noel Prows, Craig and Tabitha Hochscheid, Ryan Messer and Jimmy Musuraca, Trinette Zawadzski and Paige Malott.”
Moroski’s press conference will be held at the Hamilton County Board of Elections, 824 Broadway Street, Cincinnati, Ohio on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at 10:00am.
