2020 Membership Drive

UAPA began in 2004 and continues to help elect progressive candidates to all levels of government.  We do this by organizing educational programs, debate watch parties, our website and newsletter, as well as by notifying volunteers of opportunities to help campaigns, making contributions, and offering yard signs and bumper stickers that enable progressives to “take a stand”.  All of this requires effort and money and the UAPA Executive Committee decided to request annual dues of $25, beginning in May 2016.

Central Committee Candidates - 2020

The 2020 Primary on March 17th is also  an election for the representatives of the 6 Wards in Upper Arlington to the Ohio Democratic Party Central Committee. Some are contested and some are not. Some are endorsed by the Franklin County Democratic Party (FCDP), some are not. UAPA requested all candidates to submit a brief statement if they wished so you can become familiar with people who help guide our local Democratic Party. Providing this information to you does not constitute an endorsement by UAPA.
 

Finally Killing the Gerrymander? How Ohio’s New Redistricting Rules Work

In 2015 and 2018, more than 70% of Ohioans amended Ohio’s Constitution to reform the rules used to create state and Congressional districts. Next year, after the Census, we will finally implement these rules to draw the districts which will be used for the next 10 years! Join UAPA for a presentation on how the new rules will work and what we need to do to ensure that districts are fairly drawn.

Presenters:

Professor Richard Gunther, who was involved in the negotiations that led to the Ohio reforms

Pre-Primary Forums - Meet the Local Candidates

There have been multiple debates between Presidential hopefuls in advance of Ohio's Primary on March 17th, but did you know that there are other more local primaries? Two Democrats are vying to unseat Steve Stivers in Congressional District 15 and five want to face off against Stephanie Kunzie in State Senate District 16. Take the time to meet them and hear what they hope to accomplish. We have two upcoming opportunities:

Apply for Vacant UA Positions on the FCDP Executive Committee

Along with a number of at large members, every ward in Franklin County is entitled to a representative on the Executive Committee of the Franklin County Democratic Party (FCDP).

Of the seven wards in Upper Arlington, Wards 4 and 5 will become vacant in 2020. We at UAPA want UA to be fully represented in the councils of the county party, so we encourage YOU to consider running for one of these seats.

Letter to the Editor - Dirty Politics Has No Place in Upper Arlington

During the 2017 City Council election, postcards with gutter level attacks on several candidates were sent to nearly everyone in UA. The funders of the PAC that sent them were unknown until after the election, but the treasurer of record was Angela Lanctot who is currently running for Council. We are publishing the following in the hope that last minute sleazy attacks on candidates will not reappear this year.

Here We Go ... Again!

During the 2016 Presidential Campaign literally hundreds of UA for Hillary and Clinton/Kaine signs were stolen and/or destroyed. UAPA replaced the sign at one home five times.
