There is no place for hatred or bigotry in Columbus, and we firmly denounce this disgusting attack.
We at Yes We Can Columbus have included a commitment to 100% clean and renewable energy by 2035 in our platform. By transitioning to a clean energy economy, we have the opportunity to lead in creating thousands of good paying, sustainable jobs for our community.
The White House will not lead us. It is up to cities like Columbus to forge a new path for a just, sustainable, and healthy future. We must do our part to protect our environment, our economy, and our resident’s quality of life.

“I stand with the community and the families that have suffered at the hands of overzealous and abusive police officers,” City Council candidate Jasmine Ayres said in a statement Tuesday morning. “Officer Zachary Rosen does not deserve to wear the badge and both Mayor Ginther and the city of Columbus should stand on the side of the people demanding his removal from the police force.”
After an Election Day that saw over 100 volunteers passing out Yes We Can Columbus sample ballots, all five of the organization’s endorsed candidates have made it through to the next election.
