to commence gathering signatures for the November ballot. They must gather
402,275 signatures by August to add the petition to the November ballot.
Dr. Bradford Pressman, co-founder of MyOhioNow.com, said "We strongly believe

for a casino/resort and couch our language with euphemisms. Our approach is to
be clear, direct, honest and transparent with our fellow Ohioans."
