OPRA PAC Golf Outing
The OPRA PAC would like to invite you to participate in this year’s OPRA PAC event. There is an urgency and importance to your involvement as we look to a turbulent political environment in Ohio in the coming months. With a new Governor and DODD Director coming early in 2019 we need OPRA’s continued advocacy and influence. You can help by supporting our PAC golf outing. As an OPRA member you can help set the tone for the coming years. We need teams and sponsorships. The more teams we have the more excitement and enthusiasm it will bring.
