Obama Campaign Office Now Open in Cleveland Heights

One of many Organizing for America-Ohio offices, the "Cleveland Heights hub" celebrated its grand opening Friday.

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.

For more information about how to sign up to lead neighborhood teams, canvass, call voters or other volunteer opportunities, stop by the office during its hours: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. or Sunday 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, call 216-233-6509.

Are you guys going to announce the Romney Office Location?

I second Kelli's question. Could we have some information about the Romney campaign office?

Are they opening one in Cleveland Hts? Perhaps you can check the Solon Patch?

I've checked in with the president of the Heights GOP a few times about meetings. For instance, when the Cleveland Heights Democrats hosted a candidate night, I asked if the Heights GOP had one, too. (There is not one planned at the moment). I found out about this office from two press releases, and I haven't heard anything from the GOP. But of course if a Romney campaign office opens, we'll write about it! And if you hear anything, please contact me at michelle.simakis@patch.com.

There is a GOP Victory Center on Wilson Mills (Richmond Hts.) just East of Dunn Hardware (across from JC Pennys). Minutes from Cleveland Heights. Would welcome all visitors and volunteers.

"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," The Democrats pretend to be Conservative once every four years.
