INTRODUCTION TO ENDORSED CANDIDATES, PART Three:  Monday, August 24, 2020 at 6 pm


As you know, Cincinnati Women’s Political Caucus has endorsed many wonderful candidates in this year’s November General Election.  Normally, you would have had a chance to meet them all at our Endorsement meeting, but we could not hold that meeting this year.  Therefore, we are scheduling some Zoom meetings to allow you to meet our endorsed candidates in small groups, to hear from them, and to be able to ask them questions.  We think you will find these sessions helpful as we move towards the election.  Hopefully, they will inspire you to volunteer, to vote, and most of all, to vote the entire ballot.


We have had two meetings already, meeting endorsed Judicial candidates Wende Cross, running for Court of Common Pleas, Heidi Rosales, running for Court of Common Pleas, Jennifer Branch, running for Court of Common Pleas, Nicole Sanders, running for Court of Common Pleas/Drug Court Division, and Kari Bloom, running for Court of Common Pleas/Juvenile Division. 


The third such meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 24th at 6 pm.  We will be hearing from three of our endorsed judicial candidates, Ginger Bock, running for Court of Appeals 1st District, Anne Flottman, running for Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas/Domestic Relations Division, and Alison Hatheway, running for Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas, and our endorsed candidate for Hamilton County Sheriff, Charmaine McGuffey.  We hope you will attend.


The mobilize link to register for this meeting is below.  The zoom link for the meeting itself will be emailed to you once you register.




Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you think would be interested.  I look forward to seeing you on August 24th.

Southwest OH 19th Amendment Celebration: Candidate Forum and Trivia/Social Hour, Saturday August 29th

Don your best suffragette white and gold and join Cincinnati Women’s Political Caucus and the 2020 Victory Campaign for a virtual celebration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment on Saturday, August 29th.    We will begin with a keynote speaker, Dr. Kimberly A. Hamlin, Associate Professor at Miami University, and author of Free Thinker:  Sex, Suffrage, and the Extraordinary Life of Helen Hamilton Gardner.  This will be followed by Candidate Forums in breakout rooms broken down by Office:  A Congressional Candidates’ Panel, with Kate Schroder (CD OH-01), Jaime Castle (CD OH-02), and Desiree Tims (CD OH-10); a Justice Panel, with Charmaine McGuffey (Hamilton County Sheriff), Jennifer Branch (Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas/General Division, Alison Hatheway (Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas/General Division), Kari Bloom (Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas/Juvenile Division), and Anne Flottman (Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas/Domestic Relations Division); an Ohio State Legislature Panel, with Michelle Novak (HD 53), Erin Rosiello (HD 62), Kim McCarthy (YHD 73), Cynthia Richards (HD 79), and Kathy Wyenandt (SD 04); a County Office Panel, with Jill Schiller (Hamilton County Treasurer); and a Campaign Staff Leaders Panel, with Mary Carol Melton (Campaign Manager for/Charmaine McGuffey for Sheriff), Molly Goldberg (Finance Director/Jaime Castle for Congress), and Rachel Carman (Regional Organizing Director/2020 Victory/ODP, Southwest Ohio), and potentially even more from all around Southwest Ohio.  Immediately following the Candidate Forums will be a Trivia and Social hour.  The Candidate Forum portion of the program will begin at 3 pm. 


In the second of the two back-to-back events, compete in suffragette themed trivia, and meet the Democratic women candidates running to represent southwest Ohio in Columbus, in the justice system and Judiciary, and in the U.S. House of Representatives in a low-key social hour.  This Trivia and Social Hour will begin at 5 pm. 


Both events will occur in the same Zoom meeting; feel free to attend either or both.  If attending both events, please RSVP for each separately.  Zoom call joining information will be emailed upon registration for the event(s).

Cincinnati Women’s Political is proud of all our 2020 endorsed candidates.  They stepped up to run and worked incredibly hard.  We congratulate all of them.  We couldn’t be happier to congratulate State Representative Jessica Miranda, State Representative Catherine Ingram, State Representative Brigid Kelly, Commissioner Alicia Reece, Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey, Treasurer Jill Schiller, Judge Ginger Bock, Judge Jennifer Branch, Judge Wendy Cross, Judge Alison Hatheway, Judge Nicole Sanders, and Judge Kari Bloom for their elections.  This was truly a historic election.


Congratulations are also in order for the passage of the CPS/Pre-School Promise Levy Renewal.
