An Organizing for America-Ohio office, part of President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, is now open in Cleveland Heights in the former Mirage Studio space, 2174 Lee Road.
There was a grand opening celebration for the office Friday that included speakers Armond D. Budish (D-Beachwood), the Democratic Leader of the House for the Ohio General Assembly, and state representative Barbara Boyd (D-Cleveland).
The Cleveland Heights office is meant to serve as "community hub for 2012 election activities," according to a press release from the Obama for America-Ohio Press Office. There are similar offices in Shaker Heights, Parma, Lakewood, Euclid, East Cleveland, Richmond Heights and Cleveland.
"Volunteers will be available to discuss the choice in this election between two fundamentally different visions of how to grow the economy, create middle-class jobs and pay down the debt," according to the release. People can also find voting information there.
