TBAF’s National Field Director, Lars Wiechmann and TBAF’s Ohio lobbyist, Steve Dimon met with current and former legislators, policy experts, and state leadership of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce to promote the innovation of Instant Runoff voting for Ohio elections.
In a key meeting, Wiechmann and Dimon were joined by former Ohio legislators and Instant Runoff advocates for a meeting with Keith Lake, VP of Government Affairs, and Will Lloyd, Director of Political Engagement at the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.
