We stumped at the Farmer’s Market in downtown Fremont. I passed out a lot of flyers, including one to a high school Government teacher from Springfield, Ohio (he was up visiting relatives). He affirmed our efforts and said he includes teaching about independents in his class. The guy playing guitar and singing at the Market brought up independent candidates as well. In between songs, he said he was totally turned off at this point by the two major parties and exhorted those at the Market to consider independent candidates. I gave him a flyer… Our platform calls for people to support local farmers, and to that end we bought some peppers and corn at the Market. We ate the corn raw, a new culinary experience for me. Note: I interviewed Pattee Kuzma at her home in Fremont. Her son Keith has Downs Syndrome and is autistic. Pattee and her husband John are absolutely wonderful parents who have done practically everything to help their son. (Among many other things, Pattee has facilitated a “Special Needs Group” through her church.) What’s more, the state has helped too. Through Ohio’s Passport Program (for the severely disabled), the Kuzmas are given so much a month to pay for eight hours of in-home health care a day for Keith. This has been a tremendous help, said Pattee.
