Average Joe Buckeye Blitz cont. We did a whistle-stop event in Vermilion, Ohio where a gentleman approached me to talk about big businesses influence on politics these days. “Anymore,” he said, “it’s as if you have to read between the oil (pipe) lines.” After the event, we headed south down Rural Rte. 60. In New London we talked to a small group of women on the street and passed out buttons. “This made our day,” one woman said. It made ours too. We then stopped at a small ‘Mom & Pop’ restaurant in the small town of Savanah, Ohio where I stumped with a group of young voters there. “And to think you came to Savanah to talk with us,” said a woman named Lori, who offered to write a letter-to-the-editor of her local newspaper about the campaign. We then headed further south to Loudonville, driving our campaign vehicle slowly around town. A man cooking chicken on a grill in front of Beezers Restaurant here called out that he had seen us on national news recently and thought it was “really cool” what we were doing. I gave him a button to wear while he was cooking.
